Every girl needs a little glitter, right? I had the opportunity to try Tulip Fashion Glitter Shimmer Transfer Sheets. by I Love to Create and used them to glam up a few flour sack dishtowels.
I really wanted to be able to use them with my Silhouette, instead of cutting everything out by hand--especially because I wanted to use lettering. The package said that it worked with most die cutters, and even though the Silhouette isn't technically a die cutter, I decided to give it a try. You can absolutely use them without one though--I've just become impatient. :)
It took several attempts to figure out what I needed to do to make it work, and I finally did--hooray! ***This is where you'll need to decide for yourself whether or not you want to use your Silhouette--and check your manual to see if it will cancel out your warranty.***
ITEMS YOU NEED:
- Tulip Fashion Glitter Shimmer Transfer Sheets
- flour sack dishtowel
1. I created my design using the Silhouette software. Really intricate and detailed graphics will not work--you have to keep it simple, so I went with a darling Christmas tree from the online Silhouette store. Text actually worked, but I made it a little larger to make sure.
I set the blade to 3, thickness to 30, and speed to 5. Use your carrier sheet, and you MUST peel off the plastic sheeting first.
2. I arranged the cut-out designs on my towel, then following package directions I ironed them on.
Ta-da! Darling glitter dishtowels! What fun gifts these would make--for teachers, friends, neighbors, and hostesses.
I usually stay away from glitter because I hate the mess, but these transfer sheets are mess-free! The glitter stays put, and you have the look without finding glitter everywhere for the next 42 days. Love that!
