As I always disclose – I am a paid consultant for Brother, but all ideas and opinions are my own. I let you know this upfront because as my daughters dig into school sports and more what I’m finding is that ScanNCut is more valuable than ever! When it comes to designing custom stuff – well I have no limits.
What could be better? The auto blade means I don’t have to guess. The mat sizes mean I can go up to 2ft long of most materials, and it makes it super easy to customize things like sports gear bags, containers, and more.
My top tips when looking to iron-on things:
- Test the iron on the material someplace first. I just discovered a garment bag I was going to customize was melt on any heat impact. NO!
- Measure twice, cut once!
- Don’t forget to turn things backwards if there is text. Otherwise your iron-on will be backwards.
- Consider the use, and what color/size will be effective.
Recently I created a great project – Here is a link to my video on adding name (scanned in) to iron-on vinyl and creating custom boot bag.
Above is some vinyl getting ready to be applied! More tips?
- consider consistency and color theme if there will be multiple items
- save your files especially if you’ll use them again
- Enjoy the craft process!
With two active teen/tweens that means I will enjoy whatever crafts – and time- comes my way. I’m enjoying the creative challenge of hand crafting or customizing things as possible.
Do you have tips for me? I’d love to hear them! Please do let me know how you’re getting more crafting in or finding projects in your busy life. For me, I’ll be partnering with this ScanNCut and bringing you a LOT more videos on my YouTube channel while occasionally rounding them up and posting blogs for certain tutorials. Have a great week!
