Hello Kitty

I made this Hello Kitty box for my friend's birthday. She LOVES Hello Kitty, so I used the Sizzix die cuts to create this box. I saw this cute pink gingham fabric, so I wanted to use it for her shirt. I ran the fabric through the Zyron machine to make the back sticky and then ran it through the Big Shot to cut the pieces. Next time though, I need to remember that I should probably mount the fabric to a piece of cardstock first, then run it through the Zyron machine. The fabric was so thin that when I peeled the backing off, the fabric pulled and distorted the gingham print. Eeee...I had to cut it again and I tried to be more careful, but the gingham is still a little distorted. I used a glitter tip that Cheryl of J's Knicknacks taught us at one of her make and takes. I ran Hello Kitty's ribbon through the Zyron upsidedown and then pressed it into the glitter... it really beats trying to put glue on the whole thing and then sprinkling the glitter over the glue. I think the sparklies really added to it!

Love Hello Kitty! Thanks for sharing Cheryl's tip on glittering...does the xyron adhesive hold the glitter good enuff so it doesn't shed too much? Looks real good!
