Oooohh! That is such a great idea!

I believe I've seen transfer paper at office supply stores like Staples and Office Max.

Goreific, it's hard to find here too - I recommend buying it on eBay or you can get the type I used online here: http://direct.tesco.com/q/R.100-3960.aspx

I'm going to make another one with gig tickets too Happy

that's a fun idea- I'd probably do that with old movie stubs with geeky movies on them for my boyfriend.

Sorry for the cursing, but you know, Cat you are the shit. Happy I live in the USA, could I get this transfer paper at like Hobby lobby or Joann fabrics? Also does it have to be a laserjet printer? xhugsx
