Kick-off to our Cartridge World “Printerest” Series
Summer is a memory, the kids are busy in school, and you can almost hear the sound of leaves crunching under the feet of trick-or-treaters. It’s an excellent time to get cozy and work on some fall hobbies. How about crafting? Solely using the resources in your home, the arts have become extremely accessible and cost-efficient.
Did you know your home printer can be used for much more than printing your kids’ homework? You’re about to find out as we kick off our new “Printerest” Series from Cartridge World! Allow us to help you kick start your journey as a tech-savvy Martha Stewart.
I can’t believe it’s not luxury napkins!
We mentioned summer is a memory, but that doesn’t mean it’s the ending of barbeques. Where there’s a grill, there’s a way. If you’re hosting a party and are looking to save some money on swanky napkins, check out how to print your own, personalized decorations on otherwise plain napkins!
All you need to do is create a saying or design in any word processor on your computer. Then load your printed napkin into an inkjet printer. Make sure to leave the napkin folded once to have the correct thickness to run through the printer. The rest is printing magic.
Sacks for all seasons
Customized lunch bags for your kids are always a sweet touch. You’ll be honored by many in school cafeteria conversations. Check out how to print graphics on paper lunch bags to brighten up a bland day or personalize a gift exchange!
All it takes is a lunch sack (both ends taped) and a neat graphic on your word processor or paint program.
For more than next year’s potato race
One man’s trash is another man’s treasure. This can definitely be said for the discarded burlap bags hanging around your garage. Turn the remnants of your summer garden project into a home craft project. See how to print on a sackcloth surface with your home printer to create DIY invitations, decorations, and whatever else your crafty heart desires.
With an iron and some freezer paper, you’ll be creating burlap crafts that will impress the entire neighborhood.
