Snowflake Windows by Kaysi

Hi!  It’s Kaysi from Keeping it Simple.
Taking down Christmas this year made my house look so bare.  I had the tree right in front of this window and when I took it down, it was so boring.  I just had to do something with it.   I love the look of snowflakes, they are just so pretty, so I just took some white vinyl and cut out a bunch of different snowflakes and put it onto my window.

Heat Transfer Trick-or-Treat Bag

by Tausha Hoyt from Sassy Style Redesign

Maybe I am the only one, but I grabbed the Halloween costume supplies and realized that we had no trick or treat bags. Not exactly sure how this happened, but we are trick or treat bag-less nonetheless.

So, I decided to remedy the situation today. It was super simple and not too hard to do. Good thing, because I need 3 of them.

First things first. You need to gather your supplies

Canvas Bag-I got mine at wal-mart in a 3 pack
Heat Transfer Vinyl-This is made by Brookie Craft. Look for it at a local craft store or online at vinyloutlet.net  You can look for this under the Sillouhette name.
Iron
Scrap Fabric for ironing

Anything that only has 4 supplies needed, is bound to be simple…right? Of course it is.

First, I used my Cricut to cut out the design. You could totally use a Google image, trace and cut out if you don’t have a Cricut or Silhouette.

When using heat transfer vinyl-you want to make sure that flip or mirror your image. Also, the matte side is the side that is facing up. The shiny side down.

Once your image is cut, you need to take it off of the transfer tape or clear acrylic side. Just peal it off. Super simple. Wa-hoo!

After your image is placed, you are ready to iron. This is where your scrap piece of fabric comes into play.

After you have the fabric over your image, use a no steam iron set on the cotton setting. Lightly iron over the image and it will set almost immediately.

After that, you are ironed and done!

The very talented Tiffany Hood has been playing with vinyl again! We love the ideas she comes up with using her electronic cutter and an old table she had. With some time and crafty patience she created this AWESOME children’s Play Table with vinyl!
