Craft Dragon and the silhouette Cameo

Here is my first project using my new craft dragon and the cameo. I thought I jazz up this plain old t-shirt with some vinyl and rhinestones. I have got the silhouette studio designer edition which allows you to convert any image to a rhinestone template. I love this Eiffel tower image so i thought i would change it into rhinestones, the soft ware even tells you how many stones it will use.

I then used this great vintage font to spell Paris, but I left out the a. I used some t-shirt vinyl that I got off eBay.

While I was preparing these bits I had the craft dragon heating ready to fix the items, for the vinyl the dragon needs to be on quite a hot setting and takes about 30 secs to stick. I fixed the vinyl first it has to be cool before you peel off the backing. Then I placed my Eiffel tower in to position and turned the heat down it only takes 15 seconds for the rhinestones to set and again they need to cool before the backing is removed.

Here is the finished project my new t-shirt
