A Pencil Case decorated with Collage Print
A collage made from Color Bar paper and magazine cut-outs glued onto paper. The collage is scanned and printed onto transfer paper. The transfer paper is trimmed and ironed onto a cotton pencil case.
How to do it
Measure the area of your chosen textile. Here the measurements of the pencil case are 8x20 cm. Three pencil case collages fit on an A4 piece of paper. Please note: Keep a collage free border of 2 cm from the bottom and 2 cm to the top of the A4 piece of paper.
Cut/tear and punch out the designs from Color Bar paper, various magazines, brochures etc. Use a glue stick.
Scan the collage and print it out onto transfer paper using an inkjet printer (not laser printer).
Cut out and remove the backing paper.
Place the cut-out design on top of the pencil case with a piece of baking paper on top. You may fill the pencil case with cotton wool beforehand. Now iron, fixing the cut-out design onto the pencil case.
Take photos with a camera/smartphone as an alternative to photos from magazines and brochures, making the collages even more personal.
