  1. If this is Homemade template flock you are hitting air pockets where your material has not bonded together, when you were trying to create it, and when the blade or rollers hit it it is popping, releasing the air in the empty holes where the adhesive has not cured,to the other carrier, if this is happening you will also not cut through both layers, and most likely the flock part will get stuck in your blade holder as it lifts up .
  2. Is this homemade template flock? Are you putting it on a mat to cut or cutting direct on to paper?
  3. There are some that try to make a rhinestone template material using sign vinyl and a HTV Flock, so that may be what they are trying to do,, pressing a sign vinyl adhesive mateiral does cause terrible vapors that can harm you so just be careful.
  4. I always cut two passes when cutting Flock,just to make sure no lil fiber hang tag is present,

    Hi, When applying rhinestones you need pressure and heat, to get the glue to adhere to the fabric threads well. To iron it will give a temp hold not a perm hold. My Stones i press at 385 for 20 sec, But first you need to pre press all the moisture out of the shirt and also turn inside out and press the inside shirt,, backside of stones for 7 sec,. If you cannot have all the dots release from your template material you are most likely not cutting deep enough, or you have a hanger, left on each circle. Do a double cut to eliminate that. If you cannot choose a 2 pass, then layer one design on top of itself by Duplicating, dont touch it let it sit , you will get either a 360 cut double cut or it will cut it twice, and most likely take the hanger off,, Also Depending on your software you can set your offset to go past the circle, and cut that lil hanger off, you can use the 45 or the 60 blade, Hope this helped
