  • How to make a packaging labels. Diy Craft Labels - Step 1
    Step 1

    Things you will need:

    1) Inkjet iron-on transfer paper
    2) Iron
    3) Matt ribbon of your choice (ribbon must be matt, shiny ribbons will not take the transfer as well.)
    4) Scissors

    Step 2

    Step 1: Create your craft labels document.

    The image printed must be a MIRROR IMAGE of what you want to transfer. I found that the easiest way of doing this was to open your word document into image processing software such as Gimp (free software available online) or photoshop.

    Print onto the transfer paper as directed by the packet instructions.

    Step 2: Cut out the images for transfer. Try to cut as close to the lettering as possible as the white space will also be transferred.
