Rhinestone Template & Clue

Happy Tuesday! I am being featured on the Imaginisce Blog today– where you can win a Template Kit and an I-Rock!

So be sure to stop over there–to enter!!

I’ve had a few requests to do a video on making your own rhinestone templates w/o the use of a Gypsy–

SO, this tutorial will show you how to make your own templates for rhinestones, without the NEED for a Gypsy or even a Cricut!!

You can use flourishes, letters, or any kind of design you can think of! IF you missed the Gypsy version of this tutorial–CLICK HERE!~

Also–there is a special “clue” in this video about something I have planned for you all this weekend!!

    – April W

  6. Thanks so much for the inspiration! I will have to try both versions of cutting templates to see which I like best, although the simplicity of the crop-o-dile is calling me.

  7. Thanks so much for this! What a great idea with so many possibilities! My LSS is out of templates and my i-rock is just sitting on the counter, waiting for me to use it…and now I can, TODAY! Thanks again, keep up the awesome work!

  8. Thanks for the great idea! I think ths would also work with say sickles or gel pens

  9. Nice tutorial! :)

  10. Great ideas!

  11. Thanks for the tutorial and the chance. Your tag is really cute as well!!

  12. Since I don’t have a Gypsy or a crop-a-dial I’ll just use the fashioned hammer and hole puncher tool. :) Thanks for the tips.

  13. Thanks for the great video! Your tag is so cute! Tfs and have a great day. :)

  14. oh wow! so easy and versatile! thanks so much!!

  15. Thanks for this tutorial, I will do this with both my Gypsy and Crop-a-Dial!

  16. Great video. More and more I am thinking I need one of these tools!! How much fun it would be. Thanks for the inspiration.

  17. I like this technique the best so far! TFS!

  18. Oh My Gosh How do I love bling. Let me count the ways.I have seen this tool but wasn’t sure how to use it. Thanks so much for the tutorial and the chance to win.

  19. I LOVE this idea!! I have the big bite and I will be trying this out today during nap time!! Thanks for all the great videos!!


  20. Love the tutorial. In fact I love all your videos =)

  21. I loved the idea of using your cricut to make the templates. Such a great but simple idea. Thanks for the chance to win an Irock tool.

  22. I watched this earlier but didn’t comment *silly me* but came back after reading the Imaginisce Blog today! Your tutorials are so much fun!!!

  23. Thanks!

  24. Nice tip thank you and I’m starting to really like the Irock…LOL

  25. Love your videos!! You make things look easy enough to try. Thanks

  26. thanks for the videos!

  27. GREAT IDEA thank you for shaing it with us.

  28. Awesome idea! I will definitely try the Big Bite tutorial :)

  29. I love the idea! Now I just need an i-rock :-) Thanks!

  30. This was very neat to see. I have flurish stamps I could use and then punch holes in Thanks for the tips.

  31. you make it look so easy, thanks for a great, easy to follow, tutorial

  32. Wow, what a great tutorial!!

  33. Thank you! I learned a lot about the punch too! Very clever tool.

  34. Thanks for the great idea(s)!!! I do have a Crop-A-Dile but not the IROCK. I guess I’ll be looking for it, though. With Christmas coming and having several friends who do not celebrate Christmas as a holiday, I can still “bling” up their “Happy Holidays” cards! :) I’ll keep my fingers crossed that I win the IROCK so I can have yet another new hobby/addiction! lol

  35. Thanks for the tutorial. Now I have something to do with my Big Bite. Thanks for the chances to win also.

  39. Thanks for sharing this Sarah…great tutorial! :)

  40. Thanks for sharing this..since I don’t have a gypsy this will work great for me. This is another thing on my to try list that I will have to start tackling.

  41. The videos were great! Thanks for sharing such great ideas. I enjoyed them both, but since I don’t have a gypsy “yet” I think the Crop-A-Dial would work best for me.

  42. What a fun tutorial..thanks for sharing!!

  43. great videos! I think I will try the Gypsy method. Thanks for the chance.

  44. Love this idea!! Now only if I had an i-rock 😉 But seriously I love all your tutorials! You have been such a help to me!!! Thanks for everything!!! :)



  46. This is a great idea, I just got my I-rock the other day. Phew relief! Went to michaels today and now they have value packs. You get the I-rock and a cute lip gloss gem holder in one package! Wish I would have waited. But I cannot find templates anywhere so I think Ill use your gypsy technique since I still need to purchase A Big Shot! Thanks for the wonderful Tips. Your a life saver!


  47. Thanks for the great ideas. I also entered to win. Wish me luck.

  63. Fantastic idea and great video. Thanks for sharing.

  64. Hi, I’ve been a follower for a bit now and I love that Imaginisce is giving people access to free tutorials on how to get more from their products. Great tutorial!

  65. Fun – I love rhinestones and this is such a great idea!

  66. I am going to try both of these templates and the homemade glue-dots. Thanks Sarah look forward to the Blog Hop on 9/11. I stopped by Imaginese too and left a comment.

  67. Do you have a video on how to make rhinestone template with cricut using heavy duty cardstock so I can brush stones into holes and use sticky tape over top to grab design and then heat press onto my shirts? I saw your video using gun and placing each individual stone but i was looking for a template I can make w cricut and then drop stones into template;) I hope this makes sense!
