Hi everyone! How are you doing? It’s Andrea from The Cottage Market. It’s always great to have you here at The Graphics Fairy! Today, I have a simple yet fun and incredibly useful tutorial for you. We’ll learn how to print on tissue paper. Sheets of printed tissue paper can be used in many ways. You can personalize wrapping paper for a pretty gift or decoupage it onto something special to create a transparent effect. The possibilities are endless! In this article, we’ll go over the printing process, and in our next meeting, I’ll share some DIY projects using the printed tissue paper to get you started!

Supply List for Printing on Tissue Paper

Your supply list for this project is very short. You’ll need tape, an iron, standard computer paper (either 8 1/2″ x 11″ or 8 1/2″ x 14″), and tissue paper. I used the tissue paper available in a large pack from the dollar store and cut it to 8″ x 10″ to safely attach it to the computer paper. Additionally, you’ll need a computer and a printer.

It’s time to unleash your creativity! Choose your favorite computer paper and place your desired design on the tissue paper. You can also select various images and create a pattern that covers the entire sheet. The Graphics Fairy offers a vast collection of graphics and designs, making it easy for you to come up with extraordinary creations!

Next, cut the tissue paper to your preferred size and lightly iron it. You won’t be able to make it completely smooth, but ironing will help remove some of the wrinkles so that it can easily pass through the printer. Remember to keep the iron on a low setting to prevent triggering the steam. It’s just a precautionary measure, and a few wrinkles won’t be a problem.

Ironing Paper

After ironing, tape the tissue paper to the standard computer paper. Make sure to smooth it out, eliminating any bubbles. It’s essential to secure the tape on all four corners.
