DIY: labelling my chopping board with kitchen measurements

Heat transfer vinyl (HTV), sometimes known as iron on vinyl, can be applied to many thing - how about a chopping board? 

Many people think that HTV won't work on wood, but it absolutely does! Here at HappyFabric, we love creating wooden decorations, costers and more using HTV on wooden surfaces. You can even pop it under the heat press depending on the thickness.

Here's a recent kitchen decor project from our brilliant Creative Expert, Sarah, who decided to create a kitchen measurement guide using a blank bamboo chopping board and some HappyFlex HTV.
