Last weekend during the online crop over at iScrap, I learned this super easy technique called the Packing Tape Technique. At first it sounded complicated but after I actually did it, I found out how simple and fun it is to do! I hope that you enjoy it as much as I did!
*Glossy image ripped from a magazine
*A dish of water big enough to fit your entire image
Cover your image with a piece of packing tape. If your image is larger and you need to overlap the tape, don't worry! It will still work.
Rub over your image with a bone folder to adhere the tape securely. If you have a stubborn air bubble that just won't go away, take a paper piercer and gently pop it and rub the bone folder over to smooth out.
Cut out your image.
Soak the image in water for 1-2 minutes.
Gently rub off all the paper backing. Be careful not to use your fingernails as it will scratch your image.
All you should be left with is the packing tape with the image transferred to it.
Now you can use this to embellish cards, scrapbook pages, alter objects, the list is endless!
Here is the card that I used my little bird for.
