Personalize your Child's Trick-or-Treat Bag!

Get your child ready for Halloween with a personalized Trick-or-Treat Bag! You'll need a cotton or cotton/polyester blend bag, iron-on paper and an iron.
Step 1: Choosing an Image
Launch Photo Explosion and select Browse or Edit Photo on the opening screen. Get your photo from your digital camera, scanner, video capture or choose an image from the files in your computer by selecting the folder containing the image and double-clicking the appropriate thumbnail.





Step 2: Adding Text
Add text by going to the Text menu, and choosing Add/Edit. The text tools will appear on the left, allowing you to write your own message. You can also change the font and color and even add texture or a gradient to it! Select Apply when done.




To resize the text, go to the Edit menu, choose Adjust and select Rotate & Resize. Then click and pull any of the square nodes surrounding the text. To move the text, simply drag and drop.



Add pizzazz to your text with special effects. In the Text menu choose Special F/X. You can add a neon glow, 3-D, fire, and snow effects and much more. We've chosen the Imprint effect. Choose from the imprint options and select Apply when done.




Step 3: Inserting Decorations
In the Edit menu choose Decorate and select the Props option. The props will appear on the left. Please select the Holiday category and look for the bat. Click on the bat and insert it into your image by clicking Apply. The bat can be resized and moved in the same manner as the text (see Step 2).



Step 4: Printing
Go to the Print menu and choose T-shirt. On the left select the layout and paper size. Then print and iron your image onto a cotton or cotton/polyester blend bag or pillowcase.
