Today, I’m sharing a simple LSU-inspired DIY Peace, Love, & Tiger Emoji Tank! Grab an iron and a t-shirt, and download your free printable below!
Two crafty posts in one week, y’all! I’m on a roll! See my other LSU-themed DIY floppy “Geaux” hat here.
Today, I’m sharing my Peace, Love & Tigers Emoji Tank, which you’ll definitely catch me wearing on campus this weekend!
Sometimes it can be challenging to dress “original” on game day. And duh… everyone is wearing the same colors anyway, so regardless you’re in a sea of purple and gold.
Now, I LOVE a good purple and gold outfit and y’all know I LOVE my local boutiques, but I thought it would be fun to create something totally original for this week’s LSU home game.
Plus, this weekend’s tailgate is a little special and my favorite of the season — it’s my annual birthday game!
Next week I’m turning 28-years-old, so when your birthday falls in September, you quickly get used to tailgates serving as your birthday party.
And a few beers in, I’ll be telling complete strangers it’s my birthday and assuming they’re there for my party anyway.
I’m only two years away from 30, so this emoji tank is a cute quirky way to make me look and feel younger! (We’ll see how long that lasts once I’m around all the cute little college girls! Those were the days….)
This emoji tank was super simple to create! Plus, I’m sharing the downloadable PDF with all my local newsletter subscribers (get it here!).
I purchased a white tank from Amazon for less than $5 and printed the emoji art onto iron-on paper (also purchased from Amazon) with my regular printer at home.
The emoji art is already layed out backwards and in the right order, so it goes on perfectly when you iron it on!
Another idea is to cut out each individual emoji so you don’t get the iron-on film around the whole graphic. I cut very closely to each emoji to prevent there from being an outline around the emojis.
On another note, I’m sure you’ve heard about the new clear handbag rule implemented in Tiger Stadium. I’ve been on the hunt for the best clear bag for this season, and one of my favorites is from Flying Fox, based out of New Orleans.
The Leigh Crossbody (pictured above) is made with genuine leather accents and an adjustable strap. It comes in red, black, green, purple, tan and blue. What I really love about this bag is it’s size. Even as a small crossbody, it’s still large enough to hold my full-size wallet, phone, keys, and lipstick. You can shop them here.
Plus, I’ll be teaming up with Flying Fox tomorrow on Instagram for a giveaway! Win one by following along here (@southernflairblog).
