Gift Tray - Decor with Heat Transfer Glitter

Our Glitter Iron On can be applied to many surfaces besides fabrics. It even works great with regular cardstock paper! Today, we created a beautiful home decor piece using these two items. Here's how we did it:

Best Creation Glitter Iron-on GIO009
Any design cardstock

Paper or Wood Glue
Rotary Trimmer 17”
Cutting Machine
Thin fabric

Step 1.  You can buy a tray that is already painted. Cut the design cardstock you will put on the base of the tray to the size of the tray, so that the whole base will be covered.

Step 2   Using a flat brush of soft bristle, apply glue for paper or wood to the area where you will put the paper.

Step 3  Before the glue dries, adhere the paper to the base of the tray. You must apply a little pressure so that the paper is well glued.

Step 4  Cut a design on the Glitter Iron On GIO009. You can use an electric or manual die-cutting machine, as well as punches or just scissors. If using a machine, remember to use the mirror function in the design program, and cut the vinyl with the opaque side up

Step 5  Remove (weed) the extra Glitter Iron On material, leaving only your desired image on the plastic layer.

Step 6    (Refer to photo) Place your image on top of the cardstock paper on the base of the tray. The plastic layer must be facing up, and adhesive (sticky) part should be faced down. Make sure you place a separate piece of thin material on top before applying heat.
Step 7  Set your iron on medium-high, no steam. Apply firm pressure with iron for 30-60 seconds.

Step 8  Remove the plastic layer. Peel hot. If you want, place the separate material or protective cover over image and iron on for an additional 5 seconds to ensure all parts adhered well.

Step 8  You can add resin after finishing the design to protect the cardstock and design from getting damaged or dirty.
You can change up the designs and tray color to fit any occasion. We have 21 colors of the Glitter Iron On to choose from! You can purchase these directly from us through our website, or find a store near you that carries them. If you are a wholesaler, visit our wholesale website
If you would like to use the same designs as us, let us know and we can send you the SVG files that you can use with your electric cutting machines.  

We invite you to comment on what kind of designs (with instructions) you would like to see!
