customize your Picnic Blanket

Here in NJ the flowers have started to bloom, the sun has been out and shinning, and the kids have been burning off all of their extra energy outside just the way that I like it! And since I am ready to shed our winter layers, and break out the summer goodies it  seemed like the perfect time to customize our picnic blanket with a little glitter vinyl.

Today’s post has a lot of components to it. I’m going to tell you how I personalized my picnic blanket, layered glittered vinyl, link you to 22 of my silhouette buddies projects and give you the opportunity to win a 15×15 Heat Press from Pro World Inc!

Customize your Picnic Blanket with an enjoy the moment quote and have the chance to win a Heat Press!

It’s cute right? And it was so easy to make!

Here’s what you need to re-create it

  •  Silhouette Cameo
  • Heat Press
  • Teflon Sheet
  • Picnic Blanket
  • Chemica Bling Bling Gold (from Pro World)
  • Chemica Bling Bling Red (from Pro World)
  • Enjoy This Life – Silhouette File from the Design Store

The coolest part about today’s project was that I LAYERED Chemica GLITTER HTV. Yes, you read that right! No need to subtract your design to line it up. You can layer the glitter right on top of each other without any issues! How great is that?

The steps are simple:

Purchase your file from the Silhouette Store

Add two hearts to that file

Resize it and flip the design horizontally

Deselect the cut lines, and reselect the one color to cut.

Change your settings to Cut Heat Transfer Vinyl Flocked, and send to the cutter

Repeat the last two steps with the hearts

Warm up your Heat Press

Take your gold bottom layer and place it onto the blanket. Press for 10 seconds at 320


Peel the plastic later off and apply your hearts


Press again for 10 seconds, and peel the plastic layer off

Layered Glittered Vinyl. See how!

Pack your lunch and head to the park to try our your blanket!

Enjoy the moment a custom picnic blanket with layered vinyl!

  1. This turned out so great! I have not tried to layer yet, but how nice that you can just add it right on top of the other glitter HTV. I really like the gold glitter, too! I really love anything gold lately, though. This will be such a nice beach towel for the summer!
