Do you even look at your to-do list and just wish you were in Disneyland instead? I'm sure it's not just me! Well, today as part of R&R Workshop's Month of Disney, I'm showing you how to make a Glitter Minnie Bag with layered glitter vinyl.

Just for fun I added "I'd rather be" (you know for all those times you'd rather be somewhere Disney :) at the top, but you can leave that off if you want.

So here's what you need to get started: (some affiliate links)

Black glitter heat transfer vinyl
Pink glitter heat transfer vinyl 
Yellow (or other color) heat transfer vinyl
Plain canvas bag

Make your pattern in Cricut Design Space by making one large circle and adding two smaller ones for ears, then weld all three together. Then find a bow shape and place it between the ears.  Cut using the dial set to "custom" and select "iron on, glitter" from the drop down menu on the screen.

Now we do something a little tricky to make the glitter vinyl work. You can't actually layer anything on top of glitter vinyl, so we have to make a cut out of the bow shape. Do this in Design Space by selecting both and clicking "slice." You can now pull apart the bow and the main part of the head. The small extra piece can be deleted.

Send the project to cut, remembering to MIRROR the images for cutting out iron on vinyl. Peel the extra vinyl away and we're ready to iron.

Place words on your bag and press down on all areas, especially edges, with a hot iron. Pull up the plastic sheet put down the black glitter and iron down. Then position the pink bow to line up exactly with the cut out. Then place the plastic sheet from the black vinyl back down so the black is protected and iron down the pink.

Don't you just love it? Be sure to visit R&R Workshop all month to see all the new Disney craft ideas.

  1. Well how adorable! I will be attempting to create on of these. Thank you for this link-up :)

  2. Super cute!! Thank you for sharing your Glitter Vinyl Disney bag in the Month of Disney Series :)

  3. Thanks for sharing, I wish there was a photo of how you did the bow after (protecting the black), did you just use the original plastic sheet that was on it without peeling it off?
