Glitter Heat Transfer Vinyl for Crafts - by Southern Treasures MS



How many of you are familiar with the Cricut?  The machine that cuts and embosses vinyl, as well as other materials?  The machine, where you can cut monograms, designs and more?  Well, Although I'm not here to promote the Cricut (although I would have liked to have had that opportunity), today I had the opportunity to bring you HTV (heat transfer) vinyls, that are used with such machines.

These samples,  that you see here, are from Southern Treasures MS on Etsy. Southern Treasures was kind enough to send me a 4 sheet sample of the vinyl, that is used with the Cricut and other like machines.  These HTV vinyls normally come in a 8.5 x 5.5, but occasionally they use 6 x 6.  These HTV vinyls are made of waterproof vinyl, with a 3 year outdoor durability.  They are printed by using a professional eco solvent process and can be used for any project you normally use vinyl on.


Since this HTV vinyl has the plastic backing, instead of the paper backing, this particular sample you see here is 3 mil for the backing.  The HTV vinyl does not have a carrier sheet, therefore, you will need to use a carrier or cover sheet when applying heat and transferring.  Here are the instructions, on how to use Southern Treasures vinyls.

     * Cut desired image (do not mirror), weed and apply transfer tape.  Remove backing,
          place on garment, face up and cover with cover sheet and press.

       *  Preheat garment for 2-3 seconds with a temp of 320 F. for 15 seconds. 

       *  Use medium pressure and wait approx. 5 seconds, then peel.

Southern Treasures has many colors, styles, designs and patterns to choose from.  They have a wide variety that range from glitter vinyls to HTV printed vinyls with plastic or paper backing.  Their samples come in several sizes, ranging from samples (as you see here) to 12 x 36.  Go check out Southern Treasures MS for all the available options they have.  I love looking at all the different colors, sparkles and patterns.  It's so hard to choose from!  Below are some of the samples and vinyls Southern Treasures MS have.  And these are just a few out of the 400+ designs they have!
