Redesign with Embellishments


  • Tulip® Beads in a Bottle™ Transfers (rose and daisy)
  • Tulip® Fashion Form™
  • Tulip® Beads in a Bottle™ Paint (gemstone and pearl)
  • Tulip® Beads in a Bottle™ Studs and Crystals (metal studs and pearl studs)
  • Straight pins
  • Iron
  • White polyester blended shirt
  • scissors
  • Paper towels
  • Pressing cloth


  1. Prewash shirt to remove sizing. Do not use fabric softener. Dry shirt.
  2. Cut away keys from both rose transfers.
  3. Pin transfers in place to avoid movement.
  4. Lay shirt on flat surface and cover with a thin cloth.
  5. Preheat dry iron to highest setting.
  6. Press iron firmly for 40 seconds. Keep iron steady or pattern will blur. Lift and repeat on all areas of transfer. Let cool to touch.
  7. Without moving transfer, carefully lift corner to confirm design is completely transferred. Re-iron if necessary.
  8. Insert Tulip® Fashion Form inside shirt. Pin shirt in place if necessary.
  9. Adhere desired Tulip® Beads in a Bottle™ Crystals to shirt with a dot of Tulip® Beads in a Bottle™ paint. Let dry.
  10. Apply Tulip® Beads In A Bottle™ to each dot of transfer. Hold tip of bottle about 1/16” above surface and squeeze gently to begin forming bead. Squeeze beads to desired size and lift straight up. (Note that beads shrink slightly when dry.)
  11. Continue adding beads in desired colors until entire bead pattern of transfer is covered.
  12. Let dry flat 4 hours. Fabric can be washed (turn inside out) after 72 hours.
