Grungy Monday #21

Pin It!

 This weeks Grungy Monday challenge was using packing tape to make custom transparencies.  Since I am making mine into bookmarks for the cruise I thought it would be fun to use pictures of Tim for my transparencies since the bookmarks are going to Tim fans.   This is a technique that I learned long ago and LOVE it! I like to use my laser printer when I'm doing any kind of transfer of images.  I decided to add some fringe on the side with Tim Holtz tissue tape as the packing tape was just a bit to narrow for my bookmarks.  I simply stuck it to the edge of the bookmark pleating along the way.  On the back side where the tissue tape was still sticky I sprinkled it with a bit of baby powder. Now it's no longer sticky.  Here's another great tip for baby powder: put it on your feet to remove sand from the beach.  Just sprinkle your feet (or wherever you may be sandy) and rub the sand will just fall off with ease.  No more sandy car floors or carpets.

I love those bookmarks!! I do have a question though.. Can you use inkjet for the packing tape transfer, or does it have to be a laser printer..I know inkjet ink tends to run with water, and I can't remember how to do the technique anymore. Thanks!

OMG - these are adorable (I mean the bookmarks! focus, focus!!! LOL) I went and got packing tape a few weeks ago to give this technique a try and haven't played with it yet - going to now!

Side note - I'm going on the cruise too (happy dance) and I'm sure hoping to trade for one of these!!!! :)
