My daughter is starting Kindergarten in a couple of weeks and on her school supply list was a hanger bag. This excited me right away as I knew I would be able to let the creative juices flow and come up with something original. My daughter did set a few limitations though. She fell in love with this black and white polka dot fabric and opposite coloured ribbon, and then she requested no pink. They rest was up to me.
I used yellow flock heat transfer material to create the flowers with black smooth heat transfer material on top. I added a bit of green ric rac for the stems. At this point, I thought the top looked a bit bare, so I added the halved sun using the same yellow flocked heat transfer material.
Here is a tip:
There are a few flaws in it, but for much as it will be used at school, I’m going to leave it alone. My daughter loves it and it is her opinion that counts the most!

Happy Silhouetting everyone!
I submitted a Flower Photo Frame (pictured below) for the kids crafts category. You can check out here.
I also have a second idea for using the Free Shape of the Week. This Flower Door Hanger Craft Kit was also a hit with my daughter.
Use these shapes from the online store to create the flower door hanger:
- Banner, Flower & Frame
- Leaf Silhouette
- Door Hanger
- Create the scalloped circle by watching this video on YouTube (11 min mark)
- Create the stem of the flower by making a small rectangle using the Rounded Rectangle Tool
- Make 2 copies of the flower, using one to weld into the shape of the door hanger.
- Also weld the banner ends to the main section of the banner.
- Cut out the Welcome text and the scalloped flower center out of adhesive card stock.
- Cut the remaining shapes out of paper or card stock.
The kit is now complete and ready for your child to assemble.
Because the flower is not symmetrical, I added shapes on the reverse side of the flowers so my daughter could match the yellow flower pedals to the flower pedals on the door hanger.
Here’s a photo of my daughter with her finished product 🙂
