Materials List

  • Green embroidery hoop, 3”
  • Red ribbon: satin, ¼” wide; glitter, ¾” wide
  • Black cotton fabric, 5”x5”
  • HeatnBond EZ Print Inkjet Transfer Sheets for Dark Fabrics (Therm O Web)

  1. Following package instructions, format and print a 4”x4” photo onto EZ Print Inkjet Transfer Sheet. Note: Four photos will fit on a single Inkjet Transfer Sheet, good if making multiples, and photos DO NOT have to be reversed when working with dark fabrics. Let print dry for 30 minutes to avoid smudging.

  2. Cut out printed image, leaving a ¼” narrow border and round corners to prevent lifting during ironing. Double check size of photo inside hoop before continuing.

  3. Preheat iron for 3 minutes at cotton setting, no steam. Iron black fabric square 1-2 minutes to release moisture.

  4. Following package instructions for ironing time, cover photo with provided pressing sheet and iron using heavy and constant pressure.

  5. Peel away pressing sheet while photo is HOT, using smooth, even motion. Let cool.

  6. When photo is cool, draw and cut it into 4” circle.

  7. To help keep photo in place while positioning outer clamp hoop over inner hoop, spread a small line of Fabric Fuse around edge of wrong side of photo circle. Place inner hoop on glue and let dry.

  8. Place clamp hoop over inner hoop, easing photo between hoops. Add bow and hanging ribbon.

  9. Many other holiday gifts can be made with HeatnBond EZ Print Inkjet Transfer Sheets, including t-shirts, pillows, quilts or small books with family pictures for toddlers.
