Step 1: Now simply iron your transfer onto the fabric…
Step 2: Then peel back and viola your image is completed.

Step 4: Trim you images to the size of the blocks…
Step 5: Spray with your adhesive and then apply to the front of the block and make sure everything is smooth and looks wonderful. As a second thought I added a bit of sparkle by placing a rhinestone on the engagement ring…that little bit of bling is just what it needed! Such a fun touch!

They are beautiful…fashionable and very useful…by using 1 inch wood…the signs are self standing or if you want to hang them…simply drill to holes on either side and thread your favorite ribbon or twine through them. You can use this technique with any graphic here and as you know there is one perfect for any decor or occasion. If you don’t enjoy the extra step of creating a fabric transfer you can always run your image off on high quality card stock…linen paper…canvas paper…glossy…etc and just use the old fashion decoupage method.
