Printing straight from your printer onto burlap????....when I first saw this idea on Pinterest at Domestically Speaking, I thought...no way will that work on my finicky inkjet printer.
Well,... do I have a project for you! Even my wacky printer did the job for me! What I love about Pinterest is that it so inspires me to create!
While my daughter was gone for the weekend at a Church retreat, I thought I'd surprise her with a long pillow for her windowseat or her bed. She has some favorite Bible verses that she had been posting on Facebook before the weekend...so I made word documents using different fonts for each of the 3 verses I was going to use. (Dafont.com is a great resource for free font downloads)
Cut your burlap and freezer paper close to the size of a standard 8 1/2" X 11" copy paper.
Lay the burlap on the shiny side of the freezer paper. Iron the burlap only, then flip over and iron until fully adhered. (The shiny side has a little wax coating)
Now that the burlap is adhered to the freezer paper, cut it to exact copy paper size.
Place it in your printer so that when it feeds, the printer will copy directly onto the burlap.
