Last Minute Present


A couple of weeks ago I was  face to face with one of my biggest troubles,
my lack to prepare for things, or to have a schedule. 
I was ready to go on vacation, but just one day before, 
more exactly... the night before my trip, 
I was looking for a hostess gift!


I already had a few sweets and knick knacks,
but I wanted something else.
That's when I remember that for Christmas last year I had bought some flour sack towels and the special paper to transfer the images onto the towels. 



They were supposed to be Christmas presents but at that time
 my printer run out of ink
and the project got postponed. 
I'm glad that happened!

These two sets were done in less than one hour.
It couldn't be any easier!

The recipients were really happy with the gift.

They put them to good use immediately.  ;)

For a complete tutorial visit Karen, The Graphics Fairy,

She has great instructions,
but also the amazing graphics.

By the way I used the Iron on Transfer Method she used right here.
