Introduction: Packing Tape Image Transfers
In this instructable, I'll teach you how to transfer laser printed or photocopied images to packing tape.
This process also works with hot glue or clear caulk -- the transfer won't be as clear, though.
Step 1: Materials
You will need:
- packing tape
- the image you want to transfer
- a basin
Step 2: Printing and Cutting
Print out the picture you want to transfer. This method works with laser printers, and photocopiers -- I'm just not sure about inkjet printers.
Once you've printed your picture, cut it out to save paper.
Step 3: Tape
Tape over your image. I suggest at least two layers of tape, to prevent the tape from seperating.
Once you've taped up your picture, you can trim the edges of the tape.
Step 4: Soak and Rub
Fill your basin with water, and soak your image in it.
Once you've soaked the image for a while, rub it's back. The paper should come of easily.
Step 5: Finished!
Now, go find a use for your paper pulp.
