Printed T shirts - ready for an outing

I see people selling t shirts with slogans but can never remember what they are, or what's suitable for me

So this afternoon I decided to print some up for a forthcoming outing

My OH is always joking around, he`s very intelligent and ran a successful business but he always winds people up

So I decided to get one over on him

I printed these t shirts for the whole family

I used T shirt transfer sheets i picked up on eBay and some t shirts that were 5 for £12, also on eBay 

4 of the t shirts are like this

And his is like this

Old frames, cardboard boxes, recycled with decoupage

fancied a change from usual crafts so thought I`d give decoupage a go

I took some old frames and cardboard boxes
PVA glue
and some free backing papers from magazines

I tore the backing paper up into small pieces

Then coated the frame a little at a time with PVA glue

After all frame was covered , I applied a thin layer of PVA glue

I think they came out very well and as all the items were free, very cost effective
