Fluttery Butterfly – Altered Bottle with Instant Photo Transfer Medium

Hello folks,

This is Ranjana Jindal today on Itsy Bitsy’s blog as a guest DT. I am feeling very happy to be here once again with my new project ‘Fluttery Butterfly’. The idea is to alter a bottle using photo transfer technique.

I was extremely happy to find Little Birdie’s Instant Photo Transfer Medium mainly for one reason because earlier I used to wait overnight or for minimum 4-5hrs to get the best results while doing photo transfer. Little Birdie’s Instant Photo Transfer Medium has made it very quick and easy. I got the perfect results in 10 min… It’s really like  working with a magic wand!

Fluttery Butterfly


I took an empty clean bottle and prepared the base by applying a thin and even layer of gesso with sponge. Then I applied 1 coat of Little Birdie chalk paint Tattered Lace ( if you are doing it on a natural wooden item then you can skip these two steps).

Next, I took a laser print out of the desired image on normal paper and cut it accordingly. I applied a generous amount of Little Birdie’s Instant Photo Transfer Medium on to the area where I wanted to stick the picture. I placed the image cutout inverted downward and pressed it nicely to remove all the wrinkles and air bubbles. Then I allowed it to dry for 8-10 minutes.

After 10 minutes, I took a clean sponge, dipped it in water and squeezed it. Made the paper slightly wet and rubbed it gently with my fingers and started removing the layers of paper. Removed all the paper by rubbing slowly till I could see the transferred picture clearly.

When I was satisfied with the results, I applied 1 coat of Deco Magic glue to seal the transferred image.

Then I did some stencilling to decorate my project and embellished it with burlap and flower embellishments from Itsy Bitsy stores.

Hope you guys likedit…happy crafting…
