Ironing Tissue Paper to Freezer Wrap

This section shows you how to iron tissue paper to freezer wrap - a great
way to create texture for making one-of-a-kind envelopes and gift bags.

Materials Required:

  • Printed tissue paper or printed napkin
  • "Freezer wrap." Also known as butcher paper. Not wax paper - wax paper has wax on two sides and will stick to your iron (freezer wrap has wax on one side).
  • Iron
1. If you want added texture, crumble the tissue paper before ironing.
2. Place the shiny side of the freezer paper on the underside of the tissue paper. Note: freezer wrap has wax on one side. DON'T use wax paper as it has wax on both sides and will stick to your iron.

3. Gently iron, using enough heat to bond the two papers together. Note: 1) if you are using a printed napkin that has multiple layers (most are three ply), be sure to separate the printed layer from the others. If you miss a layer, the printed napkin will be separated from the freezer paper and won't adhere when heat is applied. 2) if you crumble the paper in step 1 and you want to maintain the texture, be careful not to press too hard when ironing.

This technique is great for use with Kreate-a-lope® envelope templates and Kreate-a-bag® gift bag templates.
