Since I am a big fan of their paper, I was very interested to see another product from them... and so glad I tried it! It comes in white, black, blue, red, and green and is sold in 12" x 12" sheets, which is nice if you have a large project you would like to cut.
I found this cute little canvas bag a while ago for $2.99 and decided to make a bag to hold candy for my granddaughter when she goes out trick or treating. I designed the bag so that it could be used at Halloween or any time. I laid it out in Illustrator, but you can use whatever software you are comfortable with.
The Sizzix eclips is one of my favorite tools lately because of the ECAL software which allows me to cut files that I design... and I am just drawing up a storm lately :-) I saved the image as an .svg file and imported it into the eclips.
Things to remember when working with Neenah EPC film:
- if your design contains text, make sure to mirror image it so that when you cut it out, the letters will be going in the right direction!
- follow instructions on package
- make sure that the material you are ironing onto will accept heat (the bag I have has a plastic lining. I will have to make sure not to melt it!)
- if you need some help, watch this video which explains the process step by step.
- Design image on computer and save in desired format.
- Reverse text to mirror image.
- Lay EPC film right side up on eclips mat. Load and cut design.
- Carefully peel away background design leaving your image you want to transfer.
- Iron on die cut scalloped circle label. Stitch around label. Add glitter dots on scallops. Tie on a spooky black ribbon...
