Bright Wishes

Recently I showed you a project I created with the Dazzling Diamond Rhinestone sheets from
 The Buckle Boutique.  If you did not see that post you can click HERE to see my past projects with this product wonderful product!

The first time I had the chance to play with the Rhinestone Resin Self Adhesive Sticker Sheets from The Buckle Boutique was at the Cropped Event in Wisconsin this past summer.  I was so amazed by this product!  It is a sheet of rhinestones with an adhesive backing, but the BEST part about it is that you can CUT it with scissors or a die-cutting machine!  The rhinestones are actually made from a soft material, so the blade can go right through them.  It is amazing!

Here are what the sheets look like when you get them



Some tips for working with this product when cutting with your Cricut
  1. Use a deep cut blade
  2. Place your blade depth at 6
  3. Use a mulit-cut of 4
  4. Place the product face down on the Cricut cutting mat and use the Flip Mode  (since you have the product upside down, you need to flip the cut for the image to be correct when you flip it over)

I wanted to use their Rainbow Sheet for a Christmas card, and I wanted to stripes of the rainbow to run at an angle, so I just placed the product on my Cricut cutting mat at an angle like this.

As you can see, the pretty side is down on the mat, and the adhesive backing is the part you can see.  This is why you need to use the Flip Mode.  If you don't flip the image, your cut will be backwards.

When I cut mine, I did have to separate the cut from the rest of the sheet . . . just a little pressure from my finger and it popped right out.




I don't know about you, but I LOVE IT!!!!

Here is a close up so you can see the sparkle even better
