Hello, hello again . . . It’s Heather from Craft + Tell! Today is so exciting for many reasons, one of them being that I launched my brand-spankin’ new blog today! If you’re into DIY, crafts and Home Decor, be sure to hop on over to my blog to check out all of my fun projects.
Anyways, I may have been living under a rock for awhile, but I just found out about Mod Podge Photo Transfer. Have you heard of it — or even used it for an image transfer? I was amazed the first time I tried it out and can’t believe I didn’t make my bridesmaids one of these bags for my wedding. Anyways, it’s not my style to carry a bag around with an actual photo. Some people can rock it, but not me. I was at the craft store the other day and I saw some gorgeous scrapbook paper. I remembered I wanted to try out the photo transfer with Mod Podge, and before my very eyes, this scrapbook paper transferred onto my bag!
So, I’m giving you the low-down today, and also want you to know up front how easy this is — you can do it!
Here’s what you’ll need to make this Photo/Scrapbook Paper Image Transfer Bag:
If you’re using scrapbook paper like me, cut out the shape you want. I went with a heart because it’s simple and cute at the same time. Next, using your Mod Podge Photo Transfer, generously “paint” the solution onto your paper (pretty side up) using a foam brush. Moving quickly, place it facedown onto the surface of your fabric. Let it dry overnight.
Then the magic happens! Grab a sponge and a small glass of water. Once your sponge is wet, rub over the paper in gentle, small circles. Paper will begin to vanish before your eyes and a beautiful image will appear! Ta-Da! You just made a bag with very little effort.
I will say I tried this diy with very thin letters and it didn’t work out like I hoped. I don’t think I used enough photo transfer and the letters were too thin.
So, what do you think? Could you rock this DIY and impress a crowd?
