DIY lip print backpack

Ask, and you shall be kissed! Many of you have been asking for some back to school and backpack DIYs so here ya go! I love a nice big kiss and I love this black lip print that you can easily make super custom - as in, having your very own DNA be part of this DIY, by using your own kiss marks! Not in school? Have no fear, you can interpret this DIY on any iron-able fabric, think: lip jeans, lip curtains, lip t-shirt, and beyond!

Prep It:
  • backpack - that can be ironed
  • iron
  • dark colored lipstick
  • paper
  • scanner/printer and computer with a photo editing program - I used iPhoto
  • iron on transfer paper - look at Michael's or Staples, etc.

  1. put on your dark lipstick nice and thick and kiss a piece of paper. I chose to re-apply and do 3 or so different types of kisses…you know, tight purse, loose lips, slight open mouth, but I skipped the french kiss!
  2. scan in your lip printed paper or photograph is with your smart phone and email it to yourself
  3. edit the photo in a simple photo editor, I used iPhoto but you could use one on your smart phone, etc. and make the lip print black and white then mess with the levels, brightness and/or contrast to make the white of the paper white and the lips dark black and sharp
  4. use your home ink jet printer to print the edited lips on the iron transfer paper
  5. cut out the individual lip and iron them on the backpack with the lips facing the backpack and the white part of the paper touching the iron - follow the detailed instructions on the package but it's easy!
