Pocket hot pad
Package of cookie, brownies etc
Select your pocket type hot pad (available in a variety of places from online to dollar stores). Apply your transfer (stencil) of choice.
Using a small amount of ink, gently pull the ink across the mesh of your silk screen. A tip-- go in one direction for best results. You do not need to push hard, gently pull the ink across it will soak through. Remove excess.
Ensure you stay on your stencil, although the ink is still wet it will be very difficult to remove from places you didn't want it! Check your fingers ... then Peel & reveal (maybe squeal!)
Repeat for the tea towel.
Allow your ink to dry (over night is best). Heat set your ink with a house iron- place a piece of parchment paper between design & iron. On medium heat (no steam) gently press for 4min, continously moving the iron.
OR use a heat press/easy press- 350F for 30seconds.
Fill your pocket with choice of packaged cookie mix. Add a spoon/ spatula. You have a perfect teacher, coach, volunteer or co-worker! Check out the video to see it come together.
