DIY Temporary Tattoos + Free Printable

DIY Temporary Tattoos + Free PrintableGuys, I have just been dying to share this posts with you! It was so hard to keep it all a secret! I teamed up with one of my favorite illustrators, Ann Shen, to make these temporary tattoos a free printable. That’s right, you can make your own temporary tattoos at home! If there was I time I couldn’t even, it would be right now. Okay, enough blubbering, here’s how you do it:

Time: 10 minutes
Materials: printer, tattoo paper, scissors, printable
Cost: $8

DIY Temporary Tattoos + Free PrintableEven though the tattoo paper is made by Silhouette, you don’t need a machine to do this project. You really just need your ink jet printer at home! The Silhouette is great if you’re cutting out a bunch, but if you’re just making a few, scissors can easily get the job done.

DIY Temporary Tattoos + Free PrintableCut our your tattoos and peel off the plastic layer. Lay flat on skin and wet the back for 10-15 seconds.

DIY Temporary Tattoos + Free PrintableRemove the tattoo backing, let dry, and you’re done! These would be so great for a craft night, a birthday party, and more. You can use the printable above, or you can even make your own custom designs.

Super fun, don’t you think?!
