Valentine’s Day Freebies!
We have 2 adorable Valentine’s Day Freebies for you today! They can be used on all sorts of goodies, from t-shirts to tote bags, and everything in between. Click below to download, and follow the attached instructions.
Instructions for Use
Materials: Plain T-shirt/Tote Bag, Iron on Transfer Paper, Iron, Piece of Cardboard
1 – Download the image of your choice.
2 – Purchase Iron on Transfer Paper (available at most major craft stores). Be sure to purchase the correct type based on the printer you own, i.e. InkJet or Laser.
3 – Purchase a blank t-shirt/ blank tote bag in the color of your choice, but take into account the color of the design you are using. Do not pick a color contained in the design as those sections would then be lost.
4 – Print design. Read instructions included with transfer paper. Typically paper will need to be loaded a specific way for your printer to print on the correct side. (Design will need to be printed as a mirror image to ensure it looks correct when transferred).
5 – Once printed, allow to dry for a few minutes. During this time plug in your iron and get your t-shirt/tote bag and sheet of cardboard. When dry trim around the design to remove any excess.
6 – Lay t-shirt/tote bag out and slide cardboard in between front and back. Make sure cardboard is at least the size of your transfer paper or larger.
7 – Again, instructions at this point may differ based on the transfers you purchased so be sure to read the packaging to see what is recommended for transferring the design to fabric (iron temperature, etc). For most brands, you will place the design face down with protective layer facing you. Make sure to place design where you intend for it to be on the shirt.
8 – Iron across the back of paper in a circular motion making sure to use even pressure across the entire design. Do not hold iron for too long in one section or burning can occur.
9 – Allow paper to cool down before slowly peeling from the corner. Peel slowly and carefully.
10 – Enjoy! Be sure to read care instructions for your new t-shirt on transfer paper packaging!
Happy crafting, everyone!
napcp contributor meet Kristen Smith
About the Contributor: Kristen Smith is a graphic designer and illustrator residing in Augusta, GA with her fiance Jon-Michael and two fur babies, Desmond and Penelope. She knew from a very young age that she wanted to do something creative and began taking design classes in high school. After receiving a BFA in Graphic Design from the University of Georgia, she worked hard to establish a freelance career and officially launched her own company in 2011. Kristen is an award-winning designer, a celebrated creative for Minted.com, and has been working with NAPCP since it's inception in 2009. She has a passion for fresh and beautiful designs with subtle feminine hints and a dash of whimsy. Her passion for design is rivaled only by her passion for animals. She has been an avid animal rights supporter for many years and presently works with a local rescue organization fostering and rehabilitating cats. When she is not designing or sketching, you can find her crafting or in the garden! She is also an entertainment junkie and watches entirely too many movies and television shows. Kristen looks forward to the extraordinary possibilities each new day brings!
