Materials Needed: 

- StripFlock vinyl in black or favorite color 

- Cardstock paper

- Cutting machine 

- Iron or a Heat Press

 - Coloring supplies (markers, colored pencils, crayons, etc.)

- Envelopes (if making cards) 

Step 1: Design Your Coloring Pages or Cards 

Start by brainstorming Valentine's Day designs for your coloring pages or cards. Think hearts, flowers, cute animals, and sweet messages – anything that captures the spirit of the holiday. If you're using a cutting machine, you can create your designs digitally and then cut them out of StripFlock vinyl. 

Step 2: Cut Out Your Designs 

Using a cutting machine and remember to mirror your design. Cut out your designs from the StripFlock vinyl. Make sure to weed away the excess vinyl so that only your desired shapes remain. If you're making multiple coloring pages or cards, repeat this step for each design. 

Step 3: Prepare Your Cardstock

Cut your cardstock into the desired size for your coloring pages or cards. You can make them standard letter size or get creative with different shapes and sizes. Make sure the cardstock is clean and free of any dust or debris. 

Step 4: Apply the Designs onto the Cardstock 

Carefully place the vinyl designs onto the cardstock, positioning them where you want them to appear. The carrier sheet should be face up. Heat your iron or heat press to the correct settings. We recommend a heat press to get a good stick at 311 degrees Fahrenheit. Put a teflon sheet over the vinyl and apply your heat source for 12 seconds with medium pressure. Warm peel the carrier sheet off. 

Step 5: Color and Decorate 

Now comes the fun part – coloring! Use your favorite coloring supplies to fill in the designs on the cardstock. Get creative with colors and patterns, and let your imagination run wild. You can also add extra embellishments like glitter or rhinestones for a touch of sparkle. 

Step 6: Share the Love 

Once you've finished coloring, your DIY Lisa Frank-inspired coloring pages and cards are ready to be shared with loved ones. Whether you're giving them as Valentine's Day gifts or simply spreading some joy, these handmade creations are sure to bring smiles to everyone who receives them.

With StripFlock vinyl and a little creativity, you can create beautiful and interactive coloring pages and cards that capture the essence of Lisa Frank's iconic style.
