Sandpaper Shirts Tutorial- PaperfromHeaven

Today, Katie at Paper from Heaven is here. When she told me about making shirts for her nieces with sandpaper I thought she was joking around. Making fun of my sandpaper usage. Turns out- she DID make shirts with sandpaper! I know, right?!
Now she's sharing with us.

This is seriously the easiest and quickest craft that you'll ever make.

All you need is a t-shirt (preferably a light color), a sheet of sand paper (I only used half a sheet), crayons and an iron.

First you'll color your picture on your sand paper, press hard, very hard. Your image is going to be mirrored of whatever you draw...so leave out the numbers, letters, etc. 

Next you'll iron the sand paper on your shirt, exactly where you want it to be on your shirt.

There ya go, within seconds you have a brand new shirt!
 
Tips....don't use washable crayons, color very hard, make sure your image is reversable, and have fun.

Lastly, I want to say a big HUGE thank you to Meagan for letting me hang out on her blog today!!!

Are you kidding me, Katie? Totally my pleasure. I'm running to the garage as we speak to grab sandpaper and try this! Doesn't it look so fun?! If you try it out, be sure to come back and leave a link to your post in the comments.
