Playing With Kraft Glassine From Tim Holtz

How about another sample from the show? I think this might be one of my favourites.

Last week was the first time I got my hands on some of the Tim Holtz Kraft Glassine paper, I’ve been curious about the stuff but just hadn’t had a go at it. I’m very glad it was included in the show because it might be my new favourite thing, well at least for this month! It is great stuff, as I found out last week, and you can do so much with it. I had to restrain myself from using it in every sample.

For this sample I’ve printed out one of my own stock vintage photos onto one of the ATC Kraft Glassine envelopes with my inkjet printer.

The tag uses some of the Tim Holtz Kraft Resist stash and I’ve added some colour to it with the Distress paint. You can pull the tag out of the envelope to add a more personal message on it. 

You can also stamp on the kraft glassine, cut it, crunch it, colour it, all sorts of things, love it! If you print on it then don’t forget to heat set the image with your heat tool.

Would love to hear what you have done with Kraft Glassine.

Have fun

    Hi Kim, I loved this when you showed it on the programme, I did not know it could be printed on. I love to use it to cut flowers (with the Tattered Florals die) and then scrunch them up, they look amazing as they are or coloured with Distress Stains. Hugs, Anne x
