Default Bling Flourishes

I am not sure exactly what they are called, but you know those beautiful bling flourishes you can buy, well I was wondering if someone had any tips on how to remove them from the acetate to place them on the project. They are usally in a beautiful flourish shape in rhinestones or pearls , but by the time I am done with it, it looks nothing like it should. I love these, but I am really frustrated. Can someone give me some direction on the best way to remove them and place them on my project. Thank you all so much.

Lori

I sometimes struggle with these, too. Here's what works for me. First, I cut the portion that I want to use completely away from the rest of the acetate sheet. So i'm working with my single flourish. Then I lay that on my project and get the placement square. I pull back one corner of the acetate and stick that portion of the flourish to my project. Finally, I start pulling the acetate away from the flourish and adhering the rhinestones just a few at a time as I go. It helps me maintain the original shape much better.

That sounds a little tricky, but I will give it a try. Thanks

The Silhouette die cut machine can also do Rhinestones and here's how they suggests moving your stones to your project (I'm sure it would work the same) they make a transfer sheet and you place that sheet on top of the bling, then pull off the backing sheet and your project holds it shape and can now be placed on your project, just remove the sticky sheet after rubbing it down a bit. Hope this makes sense.

Ok, Here's a tutorial, I found, scroll down for the transfer part. http://blog.silhouetteamerica.com/20...rial-week.html

I have sometimes...in desperation..cut the acetate very close to the bling and then put a very tiny bit of glossy accents on and stuck it down that way....if you cut it really close then it cant be seen....

If it is a lerger piece of bling, I peel back just a bit of the acetate at a time. Then as I get it stuck down I can peell back more of the acetate to reveal more of the sticky part and gradually get it all stuck down. I have used this same technique with large stickers on scrapbook pages.

the tips i've seen for these are to gently peel them off but only a little bit, fix that to wher you want it and then gently peel back the rest of the carrier sheet.
alternatively you can cut them apart and peel off sections and then piece them back together or just use small sections of them across your card.

Interesting thread. I tend to remove the entire thing and start by sticking the middle of it (or bulkiest section) where I want it, then work to straighten out each of the "arms". But, I've only worked with smaller ones, not large, intricate ones.

Also, I do leave it on the acetate and position it on my project first so that I have a good idea where I'm aiming that middle section and get it positioned right.

Is this transfer tape something special for the Silhouette or something that is easily found?

you could most likely use contact paper for this also .. any kind of sticky paper should work ..

Wouldnt Sheetrock seam tape the grid kind work? I know people use it to pick up letters so they can glue back and put back down. I would think put it on front, pull off acetate and flip over. Since you could see thru grid, easy placement. Love this idea or the transfer tape. I'll try the seam tape tomorrow and let you know if it works. I have some long words I need to put down.
