Hi there! Is it just me, or is your instagram and facebook feed chalk full of baby bumps and happy moms to be? It is fun to share in the excitement and it gets the creative wheels turning! Hence today’s party theme… It’s a BOY, baby shower.
An otherwise girly 3d bow from the online store, is transformed into a perfect bow tie when cut out of black cardstock.
Use that same bow tie on a larger scale, added to the front of a treat bag with an “Oh Boy!” tag for party favors.
It definitely doesn’t hurt to throw a mustache or two in there on drink straws and as cupcake toppers.
One of my favorite elements is the flocked heat transfer bow tie onsie!
is a super quick way to embellish apparel and paper crafted projects. If you are new to heat transfer, here are some tips to get you started.
The flocked heat transfer is 9″ wide, so the first thing you’ll want to do is open the Page settings window, and change the height to 9″.
Next, create your design. Then, be sure to mirror your image. You can do that with a quick right click of the mouse, then select flip horizontally.
Then, place the heat transfer, shiny side down up against the rollers and select load media.
Back to Silhouette studio, open the Cut Settings window and select ‘flocked heat transfer’ from the menu and you are all set to cut.
Once the shapes are cut, remove the excess heat transfer, and use the hook tool to weed out any small pieces that aren’t part of your design.
Then, flip the image over and place it on your project.
Next, cover the image with a piece of fabric and press firmly with a hot iron for approximately 45-60 seconds.
Let it cool slightly, then remove the clear backing.
Easy peasy bow tie onsie that doubles as baby shower decor.
If you are feeling adventurous and want different colors in your design, you can even layer the flocked heat transfer like in this ‘mom’s little man’ onsie. The black heat transfer shape was put down first. Then I repeated the process with the grey ‘little’. I love how it turned out…
Thanks for stopping by… and have a great day, everyone!
