Another Set of Altered Onesies...

Ok, these onesies were just too adorable and way too easy - I couldn't resist making another set. Besides, I had another idea for packaging the gift I wanted to try out. I think it turned out great. All digital elements from the Queen of Hearts kit by Sugarplum Paperie.

Once again, once I was done sizing and arranging the individual digital elements for the onesies, I printed them on Avery 3302 Stretchable Fabric Transfers and then ironed them on according to instructions (however, do NOT let it cool before peeling off the backing - you want to go ahead and peel while it's still VERY hot - believe me).

I rolled up the finished onesies and stuffed them into cleaned out baby food jars that I had altered with bits of printed digital papers from the same kit. After printing, I used matte mod podge to coat all of the papers, both to seal my printer's ink and to give the paper a little more ooomph! I used my SU circle scallop punch and circle punches for the jar lids and my SU scallop border punch for the striped paper border at the top of the box. I added some Tempting Turquoise grosgrain ribbon as a handle, threaded through a few jumbo eyelets. I hand-cut the heart (I added the text "Congrats! Love, the Taplers" to the center of the heart before printing), punched a hole and used some hemp twine to hang from the handle.

OK, here's my sorry attempt at a tutorial on how to make the box. This box will hold 2 of the Step 3 Earth's Best Organics baby food jars. Score lines are shown in black, cut lines shown in red.

I'll be back tomorrow with another hybrid project and a few cards with some of my new SU goodies!!!!

These are so great, Jen! I never thought to put the altered onesies in a baby food jar. Genious!

What a great idea, Jen!! I've never noticed transfers for stretchy fabrics. I just have t-shirt transfers. What you used is slighty different?
