9.

Place a cloth over the design and iron your rhinestones into place. Your iron should be on the “wool” setting and you should hold it for 45-60 seconds.

10.

Remove the cloth and the transfer tape.

Tip: Turn your project inside out (if you can) and iron the back side of your design. It will help your glue stick better.

11.

Do not resize rhinestone designs. Each tiny circle will fit an individual rhinestone.

Depending on your version of Silhouette Studio®, you will have different rhinestone options. With Basic Edition, you will need to use a rhinestone design from the Design Store. With Designer Edition, you have options to create your own design using the Rhinestone icon. With Designer Edition Plus, you have access to Advanced Rhinestones, which opens up many more possibilities.
