A Birthday Banner

I made this banner for a friend that is turning 40; but I guess you figured that out!  It is 22" x 48".  I order the banner blanks from H&H Sign Supply.  Anyway, I got the Angry Bird files (love Angry Birds) from the Lady Wolf, she has GREAT files.  You find the Angry Birds here.  While you are there, check out the rest of her awesome blog.  The font is called Feast of Flesh (nasty huh?) if it isn't THE Angry Birds font it is pretty darn close!!  Download it for free here.

Thanks for looking

Can Koozies

I made some koozies today. So very cool!! I got this idea from Tonner over on the Smart Buy Gal message board, this post to be exact!
Side One

Side Two
So easy, quick and inexpensive.  Buy some thin neoprene.  I got mine at JoAnn's.  It is about $20 a yard, so use a 50% off coupon. I bought 1/2 a yard and it will make about 20  regular sized koozies. 

You can download the svg of the template for the regular sized koozie here.  The svg for a 16 oz koozie here.  The regular sized koozie is 4" square on both sides with a 2" circle in the middle.  The tall one is 4" wide across each rectangle and each rectangle is 5.375" long.  The circle is 2"; same size as the small one.

Cut a template out of cardstock.  I used vinyl backing for the tall one because it is longer than 12" and I could not find cardstock long enough.  Use the template to draw the outline of the koozie on the neoprene in pencil.  Cut it out.  I used the template and scissors as I did not think my cutter would handle the neoprene, even with the deep cut blade.  Design and cut some heat transfer vinyl and apply it to your koozie or bling it up however you would like.  See the picture below for how to face your design.

Koozie cardstock template in the middle.
One cut out koozie on each side.
Line up the sides, outsides facing in.  Sew up each side joining the two halves together.  Sew as close to the edge as you can.  Once you have sewn them, flip so they are no longer inside-out and viola, koozie.  Grab yourself something cold to drink, slide it in your new koozie and ENJOY!
