One: temporary tattoos
I just loved temporary tattoos as a kid. They’re fun, easy to use, and best of all they’re temporary. When I discovered Silhouette Temporary Tattoo Paper, I just about jumped for joy at the thought of being able to create my own temporary tattoos using my own ideas and artwork. Create temporary tattoos and use them as party favors or personalize them with your party theme. Check out the how-to here.
Two: faux watercolor Easter eggs
I’m all for creating fun and exciting Easter eggs – I’ve spent hours upon hours creating some wacky designs! But you know, it doesn’t have to be Easter to create fun, decorated eggs. Create one-of-a-kind eggs with the help of tattoo paper and this tutorial. Not into egg decor? Don’t fret, you can apply the same method on ornaments and baubles as well. Personalize them for different occasions or use them year round.
Three: custom nail decals
Now this one just excites the girl in me – I’m an avid nail-painting fan and I just love the decorating part of it. Create custom nail decals using tattoo paper and apply them onto your nails with these instructions from Kelly at Finding Time to Create. No need for the messy and expensive nail stamping materials, and you can choose the shapes you want to use on the Silhouette Design Store.
Four: tattoo paper photo transfer
Another home decor idea for tattoo paper would be to use them as photo transfer – I adore the idea of decorating my space with artistic decor and treasured family photos, but not with the bulky, boring frames. This fun, easy project comes together in such a short amount of time that it would be so easy to create a ton of them for gift-giving or favors – easy wedding or party favors, anyone? Follow this how-to and create one for yourself in minutes.
Five: floral monograms on a muslin bag
Ever wonder if tattoo paper can be applied on fabric? I did too – I always wonder about applying different materials onto different surfaces. Well, thanks to this tutorial from Maritza Lisa, we know that it can be done! These floral monograms on muslin bags are super cute and perfect for favors or even to personalize make-up pouches or pencil pouches as well.
Six: tattooed ceramic mug
This one is just awesome – we don’t need an expensive mug press and a custom printer to create unique mugs! Temporarily tattoo a ceramic mug with a design you would like to use. There’s a slew of them on the Silhouette Design Store. If you would like them to be permanent on your ceramic surface, use a dishwasher-safe acrylic coating to protect it.
And there you go! Six awesome ways to use this fun material.
