Recently Prima Marketing sent me a few of their newest transfer designs. To be honest, it might have been the best thing I received for Christmas this year!
They’ve got a couple of new kinds of transfers; foil transfers and adhesive transfers which are used with metallic foils. I’ll be experimenting with both of those styles down the road, but for today I’m sharing some of their newest transfer collections.
I’m calling them ‘collections’ because these sets aren’t meant to be used as one large design on a single piece, but instead they have a bunch of smaller designs on each sheet that are meant to be cut up and used separately. This makes them perfect for smaller projects, like dressing up some old toolboxes.
I’m guessing that I’m not the only one here who likes a rusty old toolbox. Sometimes I re-paint old toolboxes, but when they are already a fab color I like to leave their original rusty patina alone.
But adding a little something extra is good too.
I started with this collection of transfers called Overflowing Love.
This one comes with two sheets of transfers, the one shown above which has several different designs and is meant to be cut apart and used individually (on the right below) and a second sheet with a full design meant to be kept together (on the left below).
It’s like getting two for one!
I added a couple of the big roses to the top and side of my turquoise toolbox.
They were super easy to apply. I made sure the toolboxes were clean and dry first, and then I just rubbed them on.
Next I pulled out the Everyday Farmhouse collection. This one comes with three sheets inside, all with various wording or numbers.
This is perfect for giving something a less flowery, more farmhouse-y rustic look.
You could literally do dozens of small projects with just this one set of transfers.
Finally, for a definitively industrial look, I pulled out the Industrial Mechanics transfer.
This set comes with three sheets that could be joined up together to create one large design. Or you could use just part of it like I’ve done on this last metal case.
It has a chalkboard-ish sort of look to it, don’t you think? This transfer would be perfect on a desk.
I use these toolboxes to store my craft supplies.
They work great for holding my hot glue gun or other crafting tools too.
Got any ideas for things you could use these new transfers on? If so, please share in a comment.
