Wow! You can really tell we've been blogging for over a year - this time last year I was making these Space Invader Cards for Dunc and Sach (my brother) who's birthdays are a day apart. This year I decided to venture into printing on fabric to make these cards.
I had seen this idea in a craft magazine last year (and if anyone knows where that might have been, please let me know and I will gladly credit it ** Update - It was Simply Homemade - Thanks Celtic Thistle!).
I have been pinning tips on how to print on fabric like a crazy thing, but in the end I chickened out (I knew I'd be using my work printer and didn't want to risk gunking it up) and bought these printer fabric sheets from Amazon.
I made up a grid of letters in a Word document (using a table with invisible gridlines) and made sure the words "Happy", "Birthday", and "Dunc (or Sach)" were prominent. I then added a few extra words, and filled the rest of the space with random letters. I crossed my fingers, and pressed print - the printer sheets were really easy to use, with no drama so that was a relief!
Think this was in an issue of Simply Homemade made up as a picture, it makes a great card though!ReplyDelete
