Star Wars Porg Heat Transfer Vinyl Shirt DIY!

Star Wars Porg Heat Transfer Vinyl Shirt DIY!
Have you seen Star Wars: The Last Jedi yet?
I'm not one to publish spoilers, but here's my favorite part: Porgs.
Porgs are so darling.  They are like a mix of penguin, puffin and little monster.  They are so cute and loveable, they get you hooked.  They inspired me to design this little cartoony image in the Porg's likeness, to make a shirt that is utter "Porg-fection".
So here's a porg.  They have the giant eyes of Beanie Boo's.  They have the shape and features of a penguin or puffin...and that little upside down smile--the frown, that is so endearing of little Kawaii cartoons.  It's irresistible.

And here is my version.  4 colors.  Giant eyes, wonky lines, heart shapes where ever the eyes look.  It's adorable.  It's "Porg-tastic".
I designed this image myself, so please use it for personal use only.
The files separated into png files are available for FREE at this post.
You will also need:
Brown, Black, White and Yellow Heat Transfer Vinyl
and a Cricut Explore Air™ 2 machine
Load the files into Cricut Design Space and change the colors to match the vinyl, so you can layer all the pieces and make sure they are all the same size.  If you change the size, select all the images so they are all sized up or down at the same time.  Then mirror-image them before cutting.  Once cut, remove the vinyl, cut around it and weed out the excess vinyl.
Start by layering the vinyl until it is centered on the shirt.
Then remove all the layers except the feet.
Cover with a teflon sheet and iron with a medium iron for about 20-30 seconds.  Let it cool, then remove the plastic.
Then add the brown body vinyl.  Repeat the process like before.
Let cool, remove plastic, then repeat with the heart chest layer.
Remove the plastic when cool.
Then add the eyes, cover with teflon and iron.
Peel back when cool.
And ta-da--It's Geek Chic Porg Perfection!
Star Wars crafts are my favorite!  Isn't it just the cutest?
With a fabulous raglan shirt!

Valentine Heart-Shaped Paper Envelope DIY

I used supplies from Cricut, Oriental Trading and DCWV for this post.
Affiliate links included.  All opinions are my own.
 Valentine Heart-Shaped Paper Envelope DIY
I love Valentine's day because of the decor and the hearts.  I think it's a fun way to celebrate love and thinking of others.  Paper heart envelopes are the finishing touch to any Valentine and they are easy to make!  I remember making loads of Valentines, it was my favorite holiday because I could be so crafty...I did not like getting pre-made Valentines.  These envelopes are great any time of year and make letter giving much more special!
You will need:
12x12 sheet of paper (mine's DCWV)
Cricut Explore Air™ 2 machine
Wax seal and wax sticks and glue gun
In Cricut Design Space, click the shape button and select heart.  Scale it so it fills the mat, 11.5 inches wide.  Insert your paper on the mat and cut it out. 
Yay, a perfect heart!
Turn the heart over and fold the edges in so they are nearly half way through the top bumps of the heart.
And fold in the other side the same way.
Then fold up the bottom of the heart to meet the top of the side folds.  Glue, staple or tack in place.
Then fold the top down.  The tip of the heart covers everything and is ready to be filled and sealed.
Add your card or sentiment and then seal with a fancy wax seal.
Heart-shaped perfection!  These are a super simple way to make an envelope!
(note: the thinner the paper, the easier)
Great way to say "I love you!" any day of the week!
