So let’s get started on this sweet VW Bug Stocking. I am really excited about today’s project. I have been super excited about vinyl this season, so this project fits right in!
Today I am showing you this really fun stocking that you can use for so many things this season…like a card (just add some treats and a gift card), a gift bag (you could throw something cute in there, or without the lettering, it could be a really fun stocking to hang up.
To make this stocking you will need the following:
- Vinyl- I used glitter HTV vinyl and Holographic HTV vinyl from Expressions Vinyl
- Cute design
- Electronic cutting machine
- Using design, cut out design on machine.
- Make little stockings (or you can buy these as well)
- Using Holographic Vinyl, Cut a scalloped border.
- Iron on designs
- You are done!
Remember with HTV vinyl, you want to make the design a mirror image and place the shiny side down. (I might have found this out the hard way!)
Here you can see how I layered this design. I actually cut the same design out in 3 colors, red, green and black and have mix and matched all of them to my liking. They really are all so cute!
Then just stuff and give…
I mean, really, who wouldn’t want something as cute as this!
I hope you have the merriest Christmas around!
