Hello everyone! I don’t know about you, but BOY has life been hectic! I have several friends with kids graduating this year. So what does that mean for me? Lots of picture taking. I am by NO means a professional photographer, but I do love taking photos. I just finished taking photos for my friends son. It was fun, but BOY was it hot! I even got pee’d on by a dog…no kidding. Okay you can quit laughing now. It was pretty funny (in the end).
So you ask, What is up with the “BOY” thing? …..It’s the theme of my project. I’ve been planning on this one ever since the first time I laid eyes on Kim’s kit, It’s a Guy Thing. This project was really fun and super easy to do. Are you ready to see this really cute marble bag? Okay then, let’s get started.
SUPPLY LIST: It’s a Guy Thing (word art) by Kimeric Kreations, printer, iron, transfer paper for an inkjet printer (purchased at Wal-mart), parchment paper, scissors, muslin bag, and goodies to fill the bag.
STEP 1: Design your layout. I used my Silhouette Cameo, but you can use whatever software you use to make your scrapbook layouts in. Just be sure that you flip(mirror) your image before printing.
STEP 2: Instructions for printing and transferring are on the back of the transfer sheet packaging. I did do a few things different and shown below. Once printed, cut out the part of the image you want to work with first. HINT: Cut as close to the image as possible.
STEP 3: Lay image face down on the bag. Make sure that it straight, because once you apply the iron on top you can not move it.
STEP 4: Put parchment paper on top. (The instructions on back suggest using a pillow case, I had better results using parchment paper.) I also put a piece under the bag to protect my desk top.
STEP 5: Apply hot iron (use cotton setting and no steam) to image for 20-25 seconds. It is import to apply as much pressure as you can to get a good final image.
Hint: Using a ironing board won’t give the same results, it has to be a hard surface. I was going to use a block of wood on the floor, but since my desk is wood and doesn’t have a glossy finish on it, I used it. Probably not the best idea, but it worked for me and didn’t leave any marks.
STEP 6: Remove backing. For a matt finish remove after 3-5 seconds. For a glossy finish, remove after 2 minutes.
STEP 7: Fill bag with goodies!
…….AND THERE YOU HAVE IT!!!
