FLOWER POWER Artesprix Sequin Pillow!
Hello Artesprix friends Ivy here again!
I got to try a NEW material from Artesprix and I am obsessed with it... I am loving Artesprix's Blank of the Month lately! The sequin pillow case for April is my new favorite material to sublimate on. Grab it while you can because this blank won't last long! Let me know you why! What exactly are Artesprix Sublimations Markers?
Artesprix markers enable you to draw on regular paper and transfer on to sublimation blank materials such as totes bags, bookmarks and keychains and more... how cool!
To Create this pillow case you will need the following:
- Sequin Pillow Case - Blank of the Month for April
- Sublimation Markers
- Heat Press or Regular Iron
- Heat Tape
- Protective Paper Roll
- Sublimation Stamp Pad
- Traditional Flower stamp
Step 1. Grab a stamp of choice, gently dab the rubber stamp on Artesprix Sublimation Ink Stamp. *A little ink goes a long way!*Step 2. Color in the stamped flower designs with any color of Artesprix Sublimation Markers. Stamp 9 flowers on a plain sheet of paper wherever you like. I stamped 3 flowers in 3 rows for my deisgn.Step 3. Cut the flowers out and place on the sequins (design face down) and use the Artesprix Heat Tape to keep them in place. Make sure you have smoothed out all sequins to be white, this is the side of the sequins that your design will transfer to.
***REMEMBER*** When cutting individual flowers leave enough copy paper space around designs so you have plenty of room for the Heat Tape. You do not want your heat tape covering any of your design when taping down to the polyester sequins.Step 4. Set the temperature on the Artesprix Heat Press to 400 Fahrenheit.
Step 5. Once your heat source reaches 400 degrees, cut two pieces of Artesprix Protective Paper. This will help protect your heat plate and work area. Place one sheet on the top of your project and one sheet on the bottom. Make sure the sheets cover your entire Iron-on-Ink project.
Step 6. Press fo 60 seconds and place project on Artesprix Project mat. Take a quick sneak peek before you pull off the flowers to ensure everything transferred properly.
Step 7. This is my favorite part! The BIG reveal. How FUN is this pillow?
This pillow case was so much fun to make!!! I love how CUTE and springy it looks.
