Hi! I'm JoAnn at Expressionsvinyl.com and today I have a fun project for you with Siser Easyweed Heat Transfer Vinyl and Crayons. Have you ever used those two together?
Here is what you will need for this project:
Blank Cards - I used packages I found at Hobby Lobby
Heat Press or Iron
For this project I used an image that I imported into Design Space. I wanted to turn this fun bunch of flowers into a greeting card that could be used as a coloring page. But, I wanted to do it a little different. Since I needed heat to melt the crayons I decided to use Siser Easyweed instead of adhesive vinyl.
After weeding the entire design I'm ready to place it on my card.
For the card I just used a blank card that you can find in the craft or stationary stores. It was a thicker cardstock. I needed something that would hold up to the heat. Since Easyweed only needs to be at 280 degrees to adhere and this will not be going through the wash or risking any of the adhesive that way I only placed it in the heat press (or you can use an iron) for a few seconds.
After removing the carrier sheet comes the fun part. Choose the colors you would like to use on your project and start placing crayon shavings on it. I used a simple pencil sharpener and a few different colors for the flowers and the stems.
When you have the amount of crayon on there that you would like then go ahead and set it up on the press or your hard surface that you are going to use. I placed a sheet of Multi Use Paper underneath just in case there was any wax that may have leaked. Then you will want to place at least one sheet on top.
You will only need to hold the heat on the card for 2-3 seconds and it will be ready. Now you have a fun new project and technique you can use to personalize cards and more.
