Scrapbooking 201: Make your own Transparencies

Transparency Overlays

These are not cheap to buy already made up. But they are rather easy to make. Now I believe they have two kinds of transparencies, one meant for ink jet printers and one meant for laser jet printers. Make sure you get the one appropriate for you printer. I think either of these can be obtained at your local office supply store, like Staples, Office Max, etc.

Once you have the transparency, all you have to do is get into your software and create the look you are going for and print it out, very very simple. Make sure if you are using an ink jet to allow it to completely dry before touching – or it will smear. Also read the box, there may be a ‘right’ and ‘wrong’ side to your transparency. Oh and one more thing, when you print, you can choose on your print settings that you are printing on a transparency and it will distribute the appropriate amount of ink.
