How to Turn Photos into Beverage Cozies
Looking to drink in style when you’re on the move? Or just love an ice cold beer but don’t love ice cold hands? Well, thanks to VELCRO® Brand Sticky Back Black Tape, craft foam, and iron-on transfers, it’s easy as pie to make your own DIY photo cozy in under 15 minutes.
– VELCRO® Brand Sticky Back Black Tape
– iron-on transfer paper
– 1/4 yard white fabric (a thin liner is fine)
– craft foam sheets (8.5 x 11 inches)
– spray adhesive
First off, get your materials in order. We printed out a couple photos of landscapes as well as a few shots from recent photo booth fun.
The iron-on transfer paper we used transfers in reverse, so we printed each of our images backwards. Be sure to read the instructions on your transfer paper before printing.
Iron your image onto a piece of fabric about the same size as the paper. Peel off the backing and revel at your fabric image!
It looks pretty darn good just like that, doesn’t it?
Now for the cozy part. Cut a piece of craft foam 10 inches wide by 3.5 inches high. This sizing fits most standard cans. Cut your fabric image so that it’s just a bit larger than the foam piece. Use spray adhesive to attach the two. Snip off excess fabric.
Next, you’ve gotta close up that cozy snugly around your can. To add VELCRO® Brand Sticky Back Black Tape simply stick one piece on the inside end and the opposite piece on the outside. Wrap around a can to make sure everything lines up.
Voila! DIY Photo cozy!
