I love the idea of this project. It's like the gift that keeps on giving. What a fun idea. Fill that plate up with goodies to give away, and the recipient can re-gift it with their own goodies on it, and so on. I don't know about you, but I would love to receive one of these - filled, of course.
Little girls would love to have a cute hair brush like this one with their name on it. It's a great idea for a gift, or maybe you could encourage your own special girl to brush her hair while making it fun. Just cut out the adhesive vinyl and stick it onto the hair brush with transfer tape, and you're done! How sweet.
This glass trivet is repurposed into a hot glue gun stand to to protect your table from glue drippings while using the glue gun. What a great idea! It uses leftover strips of vinyl in various colors for a bright and unique look.
How cute are these wine glasses with the tiny images that look like they're inside the glass? The glitter totally takes them to the next level. You could make a set of them as a gift or just keep them for yourself. Think of all the design possibilities with your chosen colors and images.
Who ever thought of using splatter guards in such a way? What a creative use for them. The orange paint is so bright, and the white letters just pop. There is not a lot to this project, but it sure makes a statement. Such perfect décor for a Thanksgiving gathering. If you don't want to try using wood veneer yet, you could use cardstock to cut out the word thankful.
Give the gift of light in the darkness. This personalized night light could not be easier to make, and you can put any design or color you want on it to match the interests of your intended recipient. I love that this one has the girl's name on it, too. I bet nobody else gave her a gift like this.
Galvanized steel is a popular medium to work with. I found these adorable Easter cutouts at the Dollar Tree and decided to add some vinyl to them in pastel colors. One word and minimal design elements on each one made such cute wall hangings. You could make some for other seasons or holidays using different cutout shapes.
Are you ready to try your hand at applying iron-on vinyl to fabric? This is the perfect project to get started with. All you need are the title and the crossed lines for the tic tac toe board to iron onto the bags and then some tiny images in adhesive vinyl to stick to the backs of the glass stones. What a great gift for a child.
Here is another unique gift for a child. The shadow box was from the Dollar Tree and not much more was needed for supplies. The glass had writing on it that was easily removed to make room for the desired message. Some glitter was added inside for "pixie dust," and the project was done. How adorable.
This one is a bit different because it contains several projects made with Infusible Ink, which is really fun to work with. Most people are nervous to try it at first, but it's not hard, and the results are amazing. See what kinds of blanks you can put infusible ink on, and maybe you will want to try it. I hope so! You won't be sorry.
