How to Print on Fabric | DIY Fabric Labels

I enjoy adding little details to make even the simplest things feel special. I spiced up the apple cider bottle with a fabric label, a technique I’ve used for invitations, cards, framed art & more. Over the summer, I shared my DIY for how to print on fabric.  The method hasn’t changed, but I thought it was too pretty not to share.

supplies:
buckram fabric
tea {optional for coloration}
spray adhesive – not Elmer’s. Unfortunately, it’s the only brand I haven’t had luck with
card stock
paper cutter
For an authentic fall look, I dyed my fabric {buckram} by placing it in a baking dish and soaking it in a cup of tea for a half hour.  I then removed it and allowed it to dry.

Using a spray adhesive, I glued the fabric to a piece of card stock…anything that traditionally runs through your printer.  Allow to dry for a minute or two.
Using a paper cutter, cut the fabric/card stock so that they are a perfect fit for one another.  Insert your “paper” so that the image will print on the fabric side.

I wanted to fray the edges a little.  To quickly achieve this look, just pull one thread at a time with a pair of tweezers.
