Personalized Bug Party DIY Iron On Design

The Versatility of a DIY Printable Party Iron On Design

Client Photos courtesy of Andrea from Ohio.  Thank you!

Andrea originally ordered the personalized iron on design from my shop, Cameo Party Designs, to make her grandson a t-shirt (personalized with name and age).  With an unbelievable imagination, Andrea also uses pillow cases and makes the cutest gift bags out of them, but she didn’t let her imagination stop there.

I remember getting those early morning emails on this one, as her creative juices started flowing overnight and she couldn’t sleep.  Andrea came back and ordered smaller versions of the same design… then she came back and ordered even smaller designs than that.  With a variety of sizes of the design, she began printing them onto a variety of papers from iron on transfer paper to card stock.  Andrea used this iron on design to make:  a t-shirt, mason jar favor tags, a party sign, a coordinating blanket and a gift bag made from a pillow case.

The best part of a DIY printable party design is that the designs are an instant download or sent via email.  They work pretty much like a digital photo.  You always have it and can make as many copies as you like, onto anything that you like!  You can print onto card stock, photo paper, regular printer paper, iron on transfer paper, full sheet label paper and more.

Tissue Paper Flowers

Maggie May's

My favorite plants are those that you don’t have to water. So rather than fill my house with cacti, I thought I’d play around with these paper flowers.

Tissue Paper Flowers

They are really easy and cheap to make and would also make great party or wedding decorations. Or just a way to decorate a bedroom.

Tissue Paper Flowers

All you need is tissue paper, scissors, and a stapler or piece of string.

Stack about six sheets of tissue paper.

Then begin folding the tissue paper in one inch segments.

After one fold, flip the papers over and do the same fold on the other side.

The point is to make an accordion. Make sure you flip after each fold.

Once it is all folded, it will look like this…

Try to slide it under a stapler to staple it right in the middle. If you can’t get it lined up so the staple is straight, you…

DIY printables are a generic, personalized or customized party design that is obtained by the customer in a pdf or jpeg file, via instant download or through email, and are ready to print, cut out and assemble at home.  These designs can include anything that you can dream up for a beautifully coordinated party.  Examples of some great DIY printable party decorations are:  cupcake wrappers, cupcake toppers, party banners, party signs, invitations, 2 liter bottle labels, water bottle label, candy bar wrappers, favor tags, food tents, table signs, iron on transfers… and the list could go on and on!

DIY printable parties are a great way to personalize your party / event with names, age, wishes, etc.  Some great examples of personalization could include a banner that says, “Happy 3rd Birthday Gus”, “Welcome Baby Sheldon”, “Welcome Home Todd”, “Roberts’ 50th Anniversary”… so on and so forth.  In most cases, you can personalize just about any printable party design as long as the designer offers personalization.

In a nut shell, a DIY Printable is only limited to your imagination.  If you can stick a label on it… if you can wrap it… if you can hang it… if you can wash it…  You can have a DIY printable designed to match your party / event / occasion!

Note:  Always keep in mind what you are asking of the designer.  In some cases, if the design you are wanting would violate a copyright / trademark law, the designer may have to find alternatives around your theme, to make the design match but not using any of the images.  This would be images such as cartoon characters, names, titles, phrases, etc.  ie: Disney characters, Sports team names / logos, etc.
