Here's a cheap and chic hostess gift thanks to The Dollar store and The Graphics Fairy.
Supplies: "Peace" Hand Towels from the Dollar Store, Avery Light Fabric Transfer Paper, Crafter's Pick Glue (this glue works on pretty much everything, including fabric and metal), upcycled white denim jeans, sharp scissors, an iron, a paintbrush, a few gems and free crown images from The Graphics Fairy. For extra bling grab some Stickles.
Choose your crown images, select the 3 x5 size on your photo editing program and print the crowns out on the Transfer Paper. Cut the images out. When ironing the crowns onto the fabric, you'll want to spend about 20 seconds going left to right then 20 seconds going up and down with your hot iron.
Too much ironing and the paper gets crispy. Too little and the image won't transfer.
Let it cool for a few minutes before removing the backing. I wait until it's completely cooled off.
Trim approximately a 1/2 inch around your image.
Use a paintbrush to apply the Crafter's Pick Glue all over the back on the image.
And again with the gems.
Let the glue set for a few hours and voila… hand towels fit for a King or Queen.
Thanks to The Graphics Fairy for the lovely images!
