Baking Riley

When I saw the new Baking Riley, I knew I wanted to create a set of towels that could be given as a gift. I stamped Riley on iron on transfers and colored him with copic markers. After I iron the image on the towels, I created a simple band. I matted the blue patterned paper with white cardstock to create a band. Then, I cut a scalloped oval out and stamped the sentiment and ovals dots. I punched a hole in each end of the oval to thread my ribbon through and tied the bow.

Some tips for using stamps with iron ons:

I stamped the image on iron on transfer using Palette ink (since it works with fabric). I let them set over night to make sure the ink was dry and then lightly colored with copic markers. No blending because it will start to gum up the marker and the sticky on the iron on. (Make sure you clean your marker afterwards because it will have a little residue. Just scribble on scrap paper.) Then, iron it on.
