Remember the postage stamp holders we did for Christmas?Â That tutorial included downloads with different designs of stamps, including a collage of “love” stamps.Â I just knew I would be using that design come Valentine’s Day.Â I have a couple of projects in mind and I will go ahead and show you the first today.
First I downloaded our Love stamp design and printed it onto T-shirt iron-on transfer paper.Â When you do this, remember that you’ll want to print this backwards onto the paper. If the computer program you’re using to print won’t allow you to reverse it, use the reversed image in our download.
Then I used my Cricut Expression machine and the Plantin Schoolbook Cricut cartridge to cut out a 6″ heart from the printed iron-on sheet. You can use a stencil or even freehand your heart if you want. Don’t throw away the scraps because you can still use them! I carefully cut out one of the stamps in the scrap area, and you’ll see why in a second.
Now position your heart image, face down, where you want it on your shirt.Â I put the single stamp that I cut out right on the cuff of one sleeve as an added detail.Â Follow the package instructions and iron away!
The stamp detail on the sleeve is my favorite part!
Little Jo loves how I turned one of her old, boring, white, long sleeve tees into a cute shirt for her to wear to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Also, this shirt isn’t TOO Valentine-y, so she can continue to wear it until she grows out of it in another month!
