Default Tulip Mini Fashion Iron...love it!!

I was just wondering through Walmart the other night, and found this iron on clearance for $5.00. It is the Tulip Mini Fashion Iron. It is awesome!!! I just used it to make my own ribbon. It is much easier than the regular-size iron. It didn't take very long to transfer my image either. It is definately going to be worth the $5.00.

Here is a link to one that I found. It is $16.00 there. Anyway, just thought I would share.

I was thinking about getting one of these, but wasn't sure if it was a good buy. Thanks for sharing.

Probably a stupid question, but does this plug in?

I've seen these, but wasn't sure if it'd be worth getting or if it'd end up being more like a toy. I may have to invest in one.

It does plug in. There isn't an off/on switch. No place for water so you don't have to worry about steam either. I have only used it once, but I like it!! I wouldn't pay the $16 for it since I won't use it that much, but the $5 was worth it. I would definately check your Walmarts. I actually bought mine in Pittsburgh while there for work this week. I don't know if my local ones have them or not. I will be going back to Pittsburgh next week. If they still have a few, I will pick them up if you guys want me to!! I dont' mind as long as you dont' mind shipping/fee costs.

ETA: The plug actually comes out of the iron so it stores easily...like a laptop plug or something like that. And, the cord, I thought, was a nice length.

Oh my gosh I want it just cause it's so cute!!!! Hubby would kill me if I brought more bow related stuff into the house though. We need a bigger house just to keep my stuff out of the way

Oh I'm glad you like it. I bought one on sale as well but I have to admit it's still in the shopping bag. LOL
I can't wait to try it out now.
