  • In Design Space, size image to fit clutch and cut from glitter iron on. Remember to select the “mirror image (for iron on)” box!
  • The image was originally set to cut in three pieces – here is a quick tutorial on how I used the slice feature to customize my pineapple image and make it easier to cut and apply.
  • Once you’ve cut your image, use the weeder from the tool kit to weed the excess iron on material from the backing so only the image remains. Then iron on to your clutch using a thin towel between the clutch and the iron.
    Quick tip: when using glitter iron on sometimes you can end up with tiny bits of glitter ironed on to your project. I simply use my fingernail (or one of the tools from the kit) to loosen and then wipe away with a dry paintbrush.
  • To add a little extra pizazz to my tassel, I laid out a piece of wax paper and fanned out the tassel, painting about 1 1/2″ of each tassel strand with gold paint and rotating as I painted until they were completely covered.
  • Let tassels dry then throw on something cute and take your new bag for a night out on the town!
