What To Do With Them

  • Print on paper and make paper beads, paper boxes (Mirkwood Designs has nice templates), envelopes, stationary


  • Print on fabric using either inkjet fabric sheets or, for larger pieces of fabric, have your designs printed by Spoonflower and make appliques, key chains, napkins


  • Print on shrink film (Shrinky Dinks) to make tags, earrings, charm bracelets, mobiles, drink charms


  • Print on iron on transfers and decorate onesies, T-shirts, did I mention napkins?
