Simply Elegant Frame

Omayra, KNK,

Christmas is right around the corner!!!. With it there are many reasons to celebrate. My family always comes together to celebrate Jesus’ Birth. This year I wanted to make a frame that captures both December 25th and my 25th Anniversary. So after brainstorming I figured what better way to capture this glorious time than to use rhinestones. I wanted make a frame, where the Rhinestones are glued directly to the glass. Unfortunate it hasn’t worked for me so far, but I will continue trying lol!.

For this project

Materials:

Settings (Maxx Air):

  • F = 65
  • V = 150
  • P = 2

Steps:

  1. I created the number 25 in the software MTC.
  2. Then to make the stencil, I used the Rhinestones function (ctrl+k),  in order to make the design a reality.
  3. After cutting the stencil with my KNK Groove-e. I stuck the rubber adhesive to a cardstock and scattered rhinestones over the stencil.
  4. Then I used the transfer tape to transfer the stencil design onto the garment, which in my case happened to be a piece of cardstock.
  5. Then I activated the adhesive on the back of the rhinestones. I achieved this effect by ironing the rhinestones; I placed the iron over the the rhinestones for a few seconds.
