This months theme for the Designers Craft Challenge group is:
I could not choose between rosette flowers and packing tape transfers, so I thought to show you both!
Double sided tape, choice material or paper to make rosette (cut in 1" strips),
For the rosette flower, you'll need a 2" piece of double sided tape. If you don't have some this size, you can make your own from the glossy backing of a sticker sheet. Place some regular double sided tape onto the shiny side of a 2" circle of sticker sheet. Now you are ready!
Begin by pleating your fabric strips in a circle. Cut more stripes as needed and continue around, pressing the fabric into the tape until you reach the center.
Gently peel off the backing.
Packaging Tape Transfer:
*Your widest clear packing/shipping tape
*Small precision scissors, preferably non-stick.
*A shallow dish with water
( I get my images printed at kinkos. I use their color copy machine for any images in color and black/white. - if I were to use my normal home printer, the colors would just dissolve.)
Begin by cutting out your image. If you have a little white paper showing, this will just turn clear. Next pull out a a piece of the clear tape. Place your image, ink side down onto the sticky part of the tape. Run over the image with your finger to remove any bubbles.
In the above photo, I have overlapped two pieces of tracking tape to fit a larger clip art image.
Then I placed everything onto a decorated gift bag. The reciever of the gift absolutely loved it!
