Super Hero Party Treat Bags
I’m planning a fun Super Hero Painting Party soon with Social Artworking (a division of DecoArt) where all our guests will be painting their own skyline on canvas. Since I can’t plan a party without awesome treat bags, I decided to make matching treat bags for the little artists.
Expressions Vinyl specializes in a vast variety of vinyl and carries all the colors I need to match my project perfectly. For the treat bags, I picked Grey, Lemon Yellow and Royal Blue Stripflock Heat Transfer Vinyl. This vinyl is flocked and has a super cool velvety feel.
I keep a stock of muslin bags in all sizes on hand and luckily I had a Sizzix Skyline Bigz Die that I purchased on clearance some time ago. I just love it when projects come together easily using items I have on hand! It makes it easier to justify my craft supply stash to the hubs. Ha!
For this project I used:
To start, I cut the Grey 12×12 vinyl sheet in half and placed it on the Bigz die, shiny side up. I sandwiched the die between two extended cutting pads and passed it through the Big Shot. I repeated the process with Royal Blue vinyl.
I then cut the two die cuts in half to create a staggered skyline.
I layered them in the center of the bag for placement.
Starting with some Lemon Yellow vinyl, I trimmed a few pieces for windows and ironed them on first. (To iron on the vinyl, the iron needs to be set on HIGH and the vinyl needs to be shiny side up. Place the cotton cloth on top of the vinyl before ironing) Once ironed on, I removed the clear backing. Next, I ironed on the Royal Blue die cut lining the windows cut outs up with the Lemon Yellow vinyl. Then once set, I ironed on the Grey vinyl. For the Moon/Super Hero Signal, I punched a circle with a circle punch and then ironed it on.
I just love the texture of the Stripflock vinyl. So many possibilities!
And that’s it! A fun coordinating treat bag for our little Super Heroes to take home after the party! Be sure to come back and see all the fun details from our party in August!
Thank you for visiting and Happy Crafting!
