    Weihnachtsengel im Glas mit Schnee DIY Christmasy decoration

    This is what you need:

    A tall jar, a little figurine, decorative snow, a hot glue gun, a piece of fabric, a ribbon and a rest of HappyGlitter vinyl.

    Secure the figurine inside the jar using the hot glue gun and fill with a bit of decorative snow. Cut "Merry Christmas" or something similar from a vinyl of your choice (we used HappyGlitter red; don't forget to mirror the letters) and iron them onto the fabric. Close the jar and use the ribbon to put the fabric over the lid.  

    There you go; Christmas in a jar! :)

  • HappyReflective Instructions

    instructions


    Important:

    • Mirror your design before cutting
    • Always do a test cut

    Silhouette cut settings (for a new blade)

    Speed: 8
    Thickness: 8
    Blade: 2

    No two vinyls are the same even if they are of the same type. Thus cutting results may vary from colour to colour even with the same settings. That's why you always need to do a test cut – especially if the blade is a little worn. If the test cut is not correct, try adjusting the blade settings or the speed. The blade settings need to be adjusted in the software as well as on the blade itself.

    Suitable for: 100% cotton, 100% polyester, poly-cotton blends


    schritt1
    1. Pre iron your garment for two to three seconds to eliminate residual moisture and creases. A plain surface is important when printing.


    schritt2

    2. Now place your design on the desired part of the garment and cover it with HappyCover.

    When using the HappyPress:

    • Temperature: 150 °C
    • Time: 10 seconds
    • Pressure: medium
    • Peel off: hot

    When using a flat iron:
    A steady and solid surface is needed for printing. You might use a table covered with a towel to protect the wood from the heat. An ironing board is not suitable. You could however place a small board atop the ironing board.
    Set your iron to (**).
    Cover the design with HappyCover. If the design is smaller than your iron, firmly press with iron for 20 seconds without moving the iron. Should the design be larger than your iron, press individual areas for 10 seconds and continue to firmly iron in circles for 20 additional seconds. Pay special attention to the edges to make sure your design will stick to the garment permanently.

     


    schritt3
    3. HappyReflective can be peeled hot. Immediately try to lift one corner of the carrier to see wether your design sticks. If it does not stick continue with step 4. If it sticks continue with step 5.


    schritt4

    4. If your design does not stick, re-cover it with HappyCover and press/iron for another 5 seconds. Try to increase the pressure. Then try again to remove the carrier. 


    schritt5
    5. Up to now everything should have worked out fine and you have created your own individual designer piece.
    For a long-lasting print let the garment rest up to two days before the first wash. The print is washable up to 40 °C.
    Pro-tip: If you turn your garment inside out before washing or ironing, the colours will remain vibrant for a long time.
