Now, sit back, relax and watch (or better yet, join in!)
as I show you another fun (and easy!) way to use your new clip art
in your papercrafting projects.
This time around, I’m transferring a clip art image using packing tape
and creating a fun decor item!
As Monica shared in her last post, two options for working with clip art are Photoshop Elements and Microsoft Word.
If you missed the quick step-by-step tutorial on using PSE and WORD for clip art creating, check out Monica’s clip art tutorial to see how easy the process is.
And, if you don’t have either of these programs, you can always just copy a clip art image and paste it into your computer’s Notepad, or even an empty email, and print it out. So simple!
For the following packing tape image transfer tutorial, I simply inserted my clip art into a blank slide in Microsoft Powerpoint and printed it out – it really couldn’t get any easier!
Now, as they say, on with the show!
One thing I want to mention is that this packing tape transfer technique can be done with most any printed image, not just with clip art, but I think using vintage clip art images in this way is a great way to create window decorations, ornaments, etc.
How perfect for this time of year, right?
