These botanical wood slices are such a fun and easy craft and can be used in so many ways. This tutorial includes the how-to for transferring any image from your inkjet printer onto wood.
In the spirit of spring and summer and flowers blooming, I’m here today to share a quick, easy, and inexpensive way to enjoy nature, without getting your hands dirty.
- Wood Slices - Wax paper - Tape - Scissors - Credit Card - Standard printer paper - Botanical prints
First of all, cut a piece of wax paper the same size as your standard printer paper. Overlap the wax paper about an inch over the top of the printer paper.
Fold the extra edge over to the back side of the printer paper and tape it securely down. You only need to tape on the top edge that will be feeding into the printer.
Place this paper into your printer paper feed so that the wax side will be the one printed on. Print your botanical image and carefully remove the print from the printer.
Figure exactly where you want the image & set it down without moving it around. I found it easier to set it in place and use my pointer finger in the center to keep it from shifting.
