Spending Time on A Handmade Holiday

Valentine's Day and St. Patrick's Day will come soon. What gifts will you prepare? There is nothing like doing bling gifts by yourself to make you happy.

We often get calls from people asking if we can make their logo (or maybe an idea dancing around in their heads, just like sugarplums) into a bling design for shirts. The answer is always the same: sure we can! It's what we do.

A Handmade Holiday continues today with the spotlight on valentine and st.Patrick's Designs that is made of beautiful rhinestones and vinly material that is fully customizable. CSTOWN offers all kinds of holiday rhienstone transfers for you.

Most of the time, these designs are used to decorate a variety of apparel (tees / tanks / hoodies / jackets), as well as hats and totes. Red and green are the most common colors around the street. What most people don't know is that we can take their sparkly design beyond just clothing. We can turn your logo into a bling decal!

You heard right….imagine a peel and stick rhinestone decal that can be put on just about any surface (your car bumper or back windshield, your laptop or phone, your bedroom mirror, your water bottles for the gym!). You could bling everything on the holiday.

Put your bling transfers onto the shirts or mobile pack at home. Just need to lean how to heat press them onto the fabric or other material before doing it. But don't worry about it. It's very simple and easy.


1 .The top layer is clear which holds the design in place. The yellow or white paper is the bottom and keeps the clear, sticky layer from coming in contact with unwanted surfaces.

2. Turn the transfer so that the yellow or white is on the top. Separate a corner from the clear layer. Using a finger to hold the clear layer in place, SLOWLY peal the yellow or white paper toward the opposite corner. Do this SLOWLY! (Pictures 2 & 3)

3. With the sticky side down, place the transfer on to the fabric. (Picture 4) The transfer can be repositioned at this point.

4. Using a clean Teflon sheet on top of the transfer, press with medium to firm pressure using the chart information below. (Picture 5)

5. Allow the pressed transfer to cool before SLOWLY removing the clear paper. (Picture 6) As the paper is being removed, examine the design and the paper to be certain that all parts have bonded to the fabric and none remain on the paper. If some parts are not bonded, stop the removal process, lay the paper back down and re-press.


  • We advise you to do a test pressing before Ironing on.
  • Always use a clean Teflon sheet.
  • In general, the higher the temperature, the shorter the pressing time needed. Fabrics vary. Some work better with a higher temperature and less time.
  • Washing the decorated garments inside-out and drying on a cool setting will be better.
  • Working presses are HOT. Always keep children away.
