Have you ever tried an image transfer? They are perfect if you have a very specific image (or photograph) that you want on a surface . . . and you can’t print directly to the surface. The doggie bag project above is a perfect example – the image could not be printed directly to the bag, so it was transferred to the bag using gel medium. There are so many cool craft projects that can be made with image transfer, and there are multiple methods. Are you ready to see more? Just click through the jump for 11 more cool projects!
