FIND THE FULL PROJECT HERE:
To start this project, open up the project above (or if you'd like to make your own by adding writing in three layers and some shapes to the canvas)
Resize the lettering to fit your paper bags.
Next head to the make it screen, make sure that you mirror the mats by clicking the mirror button.
Choose the material you are going to cut to be everyday Iron-on. Then add a sheet of iron-on face down onto the mat. Load the mat into the machine and start cutting.
Repeat this process to cut all of three of the sheet of Iron-on.
Once the machine has finished cutting, take the iron-on sheet off of the mat. Use a pair of scissors to cut around your cut so that you can save the uncut vinyl for another project. Use your weeding tool to help you remove all of the vinyl pieces you don’t want, leaving behind your image.
Heat up your Easy Press to the middle setting. Lay your paper bag down on top of the Easy Press mat, making sure you lay it flat without any creases. Lay the first layer down onto your bag, with the clear carrier on top.
Press the holographic layer using the Easy Press, keeping it moving. Next press the pink and orange layers.
Add the iron-on stars to finish the bag.
Fill up your bags with gifts and pop under the tree- These can be reused after Christmas as storage too!
