Do you like to cut and weed several designs at once? If you do, you’ll know that the heat transfer vinyl (HTV) carrier sheet picks up hair, lint, and dust if you leave it exposed. I used to put a piece of wax paper or freezer paper over the design to keep it clean before pressing. The problem with this method is that I still had to find a place to put the design so that it wouldn’t get crinkled or damaged. Then, I picked up this tip on the internet ages ago: Use a binder and page protectors to temporarily store your designs that are waiting to be pressed! You just weed your design and stick it the the outside of the page protector! Genius, right? I’ve found it timesaving when creating items, especially if I am working on cutting layers for a project that I may not finish on the same day.
A binder – any old binder will do. If your designs are larger than a standard 3 ring binder, consider picking up a legal sized binder (8.5″ by 14″ or even 11″ by 17″) on Amazon.com.
Page protectors or tabbed dividers. Again, if you are using a legal sized binder, you can order legal sized page protectors on Amazon.com.
Here’s a quick peek at my binder:
How do you store your HTV designs while you are waiting to press them? Let me know in the comments, then share this post to Pinterest:
