Layering different types of heat transfer vinyl - Mason Jar Tissue Holders

Hiya, I have a post over on the Silhouette UK Blog today about applying heat transfer material, both singly and layered. I illustrated this by using heat transfer to decorate fabric sleeves to make mason jar tissue holders.

These are the recommendations on layering the various types of heat transfer vinyl from the various manufacturers.

Base layer: Smooth or Flock
Secondary Layers: Smooth on Smooth, Flock on Flock, or Flock on Smooth
Top Layer: Metallic, Glitter, Holographic

Different brands may give different results.

Once HTV had been applied to the hessian bands, they were trimmed and frayed and affixed to the spray painted jars.

Each jar was filled with a roll of tissues equating to a half box of regular tissues with just the outer band of the screw top replaced on the jar.
