Please Close The Lid

How cute is this sign I made for our pink guest bath? One of our Wolfhounds has a serious drinking problem, and we sometimes forget to tell guests. So Please Close the Lid!  I used the Decorative Sign with is the Blank of the Month from Artesprix. It's only available this month, so be sure to grab it while you can. So many great ways to use this blank!

After Weeding

I started with the Heat Resistant Sublimation Mask. This is a full 8.5 x 11 sheet and it cuts beautifully on my Silhouette Cameo. There are instructions on cut settings included with the product. After cutting I weeded out the area I wanted to sublimate and left everything else intact. It comes on a very sturdy backing sheet. PLEASE NOTE - do not mirror your text when using these masks.

Transferring Heat Mask

Since my font had small pieces that would be lost if I just peeled the backing off the mask sheet, I used some transfer tape over the top of the mask. This way when I peeled the backing off, all my bits and pieces stayed in place and intact. Then I applied the mask to the blank and removed the transfer tape. 

Preparing to heat press

So, I wasn't thinking about color overrun when I cut the piece of heat mask to a small size. So I used some bits and piece I had left over from other projects to cover the rest of the area on the top of the blank. 

Sublimation Paints

Have you tried the Sublimation Paints from Artesprix yet? They are pretty cool let me tell you! It made this project so much easier. Instead of trying to color each little letter I just painted the pink paint on plain copy paper and let dry. Once dry, I used more heat tape to adhere it to the top of the blank, paint side down, then made a sandwich out of Protective Paper. The sandwich makes sure that you don't inadvertently get ink onto something you didn't mean to!

 I added some 3D flamingo stickers that I had on hand, and some pom-pom trim top finish my project off. Everything in life is better with pom-pom trim!  The Decorative Sign comes complete with a ribbon for hanging, but I switched it out for a matching pink one.
