Last Minute Identity Thief Halloween Costume with HeatnBond Inkjet Transfer Sheets + Free Printable
Carla here from Creatin’ in the Sticks and I have to admit, some of my favorite Halloween costumes are the funny pun ones. The ones like “cereal killer” with bloody cereal boxes or the “Spice Girls” with the spice labels. One of the scariest things for me in these modern times is identity theft. Combine scary and fun with this identity thief shirt. This Halloween costume is so quick and easy with HeatnBond transfer sheets, you’ll be thinking of many other fun ways to dress up.

Last Minute Identity Thief Halloween Costume Instructions:
Print at least 2 sheets of “Hello” badges on plain paper. With a magic marker, write names on the badges. The example uses the characters from the tv show “The Walking Dead.” Use different printing or script to make the labels look authentic.
Copy first sheet of paper labels onto HeatnBond EZ-Print Transfer Sheet using an inkjet printer/copier. Make sure the settings are the best quality for photo paper. Do not reverse the image. Follow the package instructions for printing and allow the page to dry for at least 30 minutes. Copy the rest of the labels.
Cut out each label and plan the design on the shirt. Pre-heat iron for 3 minutes to high setting with no steam. Protect the ironing surface with fabric or Thermoweb recommends a pillowcase. Place the shirt on the protected ironing surface and press out any wrinkles where the designs will be placed. TIP: Slightly stretch the shirt over the ironing surface and place pins in the corners to keep the shirt from moving around.
It is best to apply several of the name labels at one time in areas of the shirt. Peel off the marked paper backing on the dark HeatnBond Transfer Sheet and place the printed labels face up in the desired position. Cover the labels with the pressing sheet.
Follow the package instructions for pressing and ironing times. Peel off the pressing sheet after ironing and let cool.
Repeat in different areas of the shirt always covering the transfers with pressing paper. Do not let the iron touch the transferred labels.
Put on your shirt with a pair of sunglasses and a stocking hat or hood and you are officially an identity thief. Spooky! Happy Halloween!
