1. Open up the digital image (in word, photo editing software, etc.) and print out onto paper a size that is slightly larger than your tag. I printed 6.5in high for mine.
2. Tape your tag to the paper across the top. This will let it smoothly run through the printer, and because you pre-printed you know exactly where the design will print.
3. Carefully remove the tape and you’re ready to play!
There is a tiny space where the tape was that you’ll have no printing on. It didn’t bother me, but I used a bit of Tim Holtz new limited edition distress ink on mine and made it barely visible! At this point I also highlighted a few areas with glossy accents + allowed to dry.
I could add glitter, more layers… but instead I just spritzed with my favorite template + current favorite mist.
And there you have it.
I will definitely be pulling this trick out more often – and yes you could re-print easily and/or print more than one at a time.
Note: The links to the seasonal distress inks (above) are to Scrapbook.com and simonsaysstamp.com – and they are both on sale as of this post! Get ’em while you can!!
