I have tried many different vinyls - my favorites right now are Cricut foil iron on found here:
As for matte iron on, I have Cricut brand which works great but I also have a stockpile of JANDJPACKAGING which is excellent in my opinion! Shop it here:
They have a great variety of colors and the price is so budget friendly.
I also love Poli-Tape USA! They have an insane color catalogue that they are continually adding to. Their glitter vinyl is easy to weed and comes in a ton of colors!
If you are having any trouble - learn how to download and upload all of the free SVG files on my website here.
I used Cricut iron on in white for this project and my Cricut Mini Easy Press on the lowest setting. You don't need a ton of heat for this at all! I press with gentle pressure for only about 10 seconds for a good adhere and then let it cool COMPLETELY before removing the plastic overlay.
This free SVG file - Sugar Skull card just pops with the vinyl on the black paper and with all the details it was surprisingly easy to weed out! I have to mention on this sugar skull - the flowers I used Foil Adhesive vinyl and comparatively for ease it is night and day! The adhesive vinyl is beautiful but transferring it is the issue. I will continue to perfect this and report back but this stuff just would not adhere to my transfer tape at all!
I hope you take this and try some HTV on your own paper crafts and make sure to tag me so I can see what you create!
