Classy Framed Decor Piece DIY

Hi there! We hope you're having a wonderful summer! Today we're popping in to show you a simple framed art piece we made with some scrapbook supplies in our stash.



To make this classy little decor piece, you just need a cute little frame, a background paper, a strip of paper, and a silhouette. We lucked out and found our silhouette on the Mia Bella sticker sheet. But, you could easily cut one out of paper. A bit of dimensional adhesive is what really helps it pop.



Hope this little project inspires you to add a touch of class to your space.

DIY Doggie Treat Bags

Do you have a friend that LOVES his/her pets just like a child? Why not give your friend a little gift?



We had these dog iron-ons in our stash. You can't find them online anymore. But, we have iron-on sheets you can cut any shape out of. These would work great for a simple bone, paw or dog shape.



All you need to create this project is a cookie bag, iron-ons and an iron. You could also add a simple ribbon and fill it with any kind of pet treat.





If you want to give your friend a gift for him/her, you could also use these bags for cookie bags. We recommend a glassine bag inside for a liner to keep oils from leaking onto the kraft bag.

These bibs were so fun and easy to make. We got the white bibs damp. Then, then we sprayed on the dye. After they were dry, we added iron on pieces cut in the shape of seed. Done!



What do you think? Do you know a little one who needs this bib?

Easy Hoop Art Decor with Tumble Dye

Ready for another hoop art project idea? This one is perfect for a summertime or a girl's room. The best part is you can use this idea with any colors you want by using our Tumble Dye!



To make this decoration, place flower and butterfly shapes on your fabric. We like to cut the shapes out of sticker paper for a crisp edge. Then, spray your fabric with Tumble Dye. After it's dry, heat set with an iron.



After you finish the cool dyed background, you can add some stitching. We used embroidery floss to outline our flowers and butterfly.



Last, add details, like fabric leaves, crocheted flowers, and buttons. Get your hoop art kit here.

DIY Patriotic Star Shirt Using Iron-on Sheets



As promised, here is a step-by-step tutorial on how to use our iron-on full sheets. This project is perfect for summertime! There are so many possibilities with our full sheets because you can cut whatever shape you want. But, today our example uses stars.



First, gather your supplies. You will need a hard, flat surface, article to iron on (like a shirt), something to trace (like stars), a pen, scissors, full iron-on sheets and an iron.



Trace the shape you want onto the iron-on backing. We traced stars that we printed and cut out of cardstock paper.



Cut your shapes out. We used scissors this time. But, if you have a cutting machine, that works great too.



Now, place the shapes how you want them. We did one layer at a time.



Press firmly for 15-20 seconds. Pressing is different than ironing because you don't move the iron around. Instead you pick the iron up and place it in a different area. These keeps your design from shifting.



Finally, after letting it cool for another 15-20 seconds, you can gently remove the backing and reveal your awesome design. We recommend turning your completed shirt inside out and ironing again.



Two more cool things about this design are you can fit a bunch of stars on a sheet to make a couple shirts PLUS the red and blue iron-ons are on sale today. Hurry though. The red, white and blue sale ends tomorrow!

DIY Tulip Artwork with Dye & Velvet Paper

The tulips here are almost gone. But, this tulip art will bring springtime into your home all year long.



To create this piece, we printed a simple tulip outline on our white velvet paper. Then, we added color with our dyes.



This is such a fun project and the colors blend so well on the velvet paper. So, we included different hues of green for the leaves. For the petals, we used coral and magenta.



We hope you have enjoyed all our velvet paper project ideas. We loved making them! We have some fun summer projects coming soon.
