INSTRUCTIONS FOR PACKING TAPE TRANSFERS

WOW! I am so happy to have had so many positive responses to my ATCs! Thanks to everyone who emailed me! Here are the instructions for the transfer technique.

Choose image and cut out leaving a small 1/8 to 1/16 edge around it.
Cover with clear packing tape and burnish, especially if the image is large and you have to have a seam.
Trim tape to cover just the cut out image with the 1/8-1/16th edge.
Immerse in water for about 1-2 mins.
Remove when the paper backing is wet. Sometimes the image begins to curl up.
Gently rub the paper backing off of the image. Be sure not to rub too hard or all of the image will be removed.
Having some of the image rubbed off will enhance the background you place the image onto. A little of the background will look cool coming through the image.
Let piece dry completely.
Adhere to the ATC or art piece with clear double sided adhesive of your choice.

Till Next Time ROBIN
