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
- scissors
- the image you want to transfer
- a basin
- water

Yes, when they dry they are still fairly sticky.
Is the tape still sticky?
DANG IT!!! I left my packing tape clinging to the side of the <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.instructables.com/id/Bike-Trailer_1/">bike trailer</a> I built.<br/>

Awesome! any way to transfer it onto something else?
Not that I know of. If you want to do that, I'd suggest <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.instructables.com/id/Solvent-Transfers/">this</a> method.<br/>
Ok, now that I've said that, I realize that you could stick the tape to whatever you want. So yes, in a way, you can transfer it to "something else".
I was thinking more of the toner transfer method, but yeah, this would work fine.
Good idea! I'm going to try this sometime.
Now to find the packing tape....
That's so cool! Great job, I am going to try this out for sure. +1 rating. (added to favorites)
