Packing Tape Transfer

This is such a great technique...  Here is how to do it. - please don't forget to share with me!

Choose and cut out the image you wish to use. Magazine photos work very well for this technique

This one is cut from a gift bag. You can get tons of images for various projects from just one gift bag.

Adhere packing tape to the front of your image. Burnish with a bone folder.

Soak in a bowl of water for about 10 minutes.

Take out of the water and gently rub off the paper on the back. This is a little messy.

Use only the pad of your thumb or finger. If there is still some paper, soak it in the water some more and try again. The one from the gift bag took several more soakings than the magazine image.

Would love to hear from you - share some love!
