Karen Watson of Frederick, Maryland, fabricated a dozen methods during her blog, The Graphics Fairy. She also provides hundreds of vintage images for downloading and suggests other do-it-yourself ways to use them.

Use a photo-editing underline to give photos a selected or unreal look, suggests Hannah Milman, editorial executive of crafts for Martha Stewart Living. Then imitation them on an ink-jet printer.

One of a simplest projects is regulating iron-on send paper, accessible during qualification stores. Print a digital imitation to a send paper and afterwards iron it onto a fabric. Muslin or board bags are renouned options, says Fenton, who suggests washing, drying and ironing a fabric before transferring a photo.

HGTV repository suggests sizing a imitation to fit inside a timber elaboration hoop. Print a imitation in black-and-white onto a piece of printable fabric, flay off a fabric’s subsidy and place a fabric in a hoop, pleat any excess. Embellish with bells, beads or other decorations.

Milman likes regulating photos in black-and-white or sepia tones and ticks off a slew of present ideas:

And boost a black-and-white or tone contrariety before copy a imitation onto send paper. It will demeanour better, Fenton says.

Milman recommends doing photo-transfer projects with kids and promulgation everybody home with a T-shirt or board bag.

“Your photos are precious memories,” she says. “The projects are archival. They can be a value forever.”
