FABRIC LETTER STICKERS
Place one piece of Jac paper on your work space, then peel back the top layer to reveal the adhesive. Carefully place your fabric on top, with the right side facing up, then smooth it over quickly with your fingers to remove any creases or air bubbles.
Next, choose your title and copy the letters onto your fabric paper. There are a few ways to do this, the easiest being simply to draw the letters onto the fabric by hand. Alternatively, you can trace the letters onto the backing sheet or even use a die-cutting machine if you have one that’s suitable for use with fabric.
Cut around your letters with small scissors, using a sharp blade for any fine detail. Remove the backing sheet carefully and your letter becomes a sticker – simply press it in place on your page! And don’t throw out the leftover pieces; you can cut them into small strips and use them as decorative tape.
Begin by cutting one A4 sheet of Jac paper into three or four pieces, depending on how many different types of fabrics you’d like to use. Next, cut out fabrics scraps the same size as the squares of Jac paper – use contrasting patterns and colours for a fun, vibrant effect – then adhere the fabric and Jac paper together, as shown previously.
Using a template, or measuring by hand, draw diamond shapes onto the back of each square. Cut along the lines with small sharp scissors, making sure the cuts are precise and the diamond shape is even.
Lay string or bakers twine flat, then take one diamond shape and remove the backing. Place it under the string, which should run directly through the middle, then fold the shape in half carefully, ensuring the points match up perfectly. Press the sides together so they adhere, then repeat this step with the remaining shapes, alternating the colours and patterns. You’ll soon have a pretty fabric banner!
