Lips Shirt

I was at the Osh Kosh outlet store one day, and was perusing through the clearance section when I found an adorable yellow striped hoodie in Lillie’s size! I thought it was simple and cute, but a little bit boring. At only $8, I couldn’t pass it up and knew I could find a way to make it have the extra cute factor. On another day, I got some of Cricut’s brand spanking new glittery red iron on vinyl and the ideas started forming in my mind! Yellow and red are adorable together; Valentines Day is coming up; I need to make a Lips Shirt with these!

This is probably the easiest tutorial you will ever find. It took me about 30 minutes from start to finish. I began by using my Cricut Explore and cutting out some lip shapes. I actually cut out three different types of lips because I wanted to see which would look the best, but I really liked these ones the very best. The lips are part of the lovestruck 2010 image set that is available through Design Space. I modified it just a little bit to get the look I wanted.

Once the lips are cut out of the iron on vinyl, I ironed it onto the shirt. Here’s a tip for you if you haven’t used glitter iron on before. It take quite a bit more heat to get it to adhere the way you want it to. I use a cloth between the iron and the plastic for the first little bit, and then I just use the iron right on the plastic backing to go around and make sure all the edges are sealed. I have found that is the most effective way to get it to work.

Lips Sweatshirt

Lillie loves the sweatshirt! As soon as she saw it, she immediately wanted to put it on and told me over and over how much she loved it. I doubt I would have gotten the same response if I had left it the plain yellow. :)  So now we have a unique sweatshirt for less than $10 since we only used about $1 worth of vinyl (or less)! You can’t beat that!

Sugar Cookie Recipe

My mom is the best cook I know. Seriously. Anyone that knows her knows that I am telling the truth. She is constantly asked for her delicious recipes and sometimes she shares the secrets. Today is your lucky day. She agreed to share her sugar cookie recipe with us! I got a phone call from her saying “I am making the sugar cookies you were asking about, so you might want to come over and take pictures.” That was all I needed to hear! I put my kids in the car and headed over.

These sugar cookies are so light, fluffy and SO dang GOOD! She started by making the dough and then using a cookie scoop to put them on the cookie sheet. Next, she used a bowl full of sugar and a cup, sprayed the bottom of the cup with Pam cooking spray, dipped the bottom of the cup into the sugar and then pressed the cookies. This gives the top of the cookie a light covering of sugar and makes it so that you don’t have to roll out the cookie dough all at the same time! So easy!

After you get them pressed and baked, make the frosting and add a couple of drops of red food coloring to get that pretty pink color. Add sprinkles and you are done! Eat those babies and thank my mom for sharing the recipe! (Hopefully I can talk her into sharing more over here!)
