Step-by-Step Packing Tape Transfer That I did


A fun and easy technique to use on your ATCs, Altered Books, or you can use it to make beautiful greeting cards.

I used "Duck" band packing tape for this technique, but you can also use clear, contact paper which will render a larger piece for your image.

The best type of images to use should be laser printed, which most collage sheets are (this image is courtesy of Altered Pages), or you can make your own up. You can also use copies from a magazine, newspaper, or book.

I've done this as well. Came out great, but I had to wet and rub about 3 x for ages to get off all the "fluffies". It looked better wet and was still a teensy bit tacky, so I modpodged the sticky side after it was done.
