SIMPLE REVERSE PRINTS | DIY BOSTIK

Reverse prints are perfect for use on greeting cards, envelopes and wrapping paper, and you can make some using Blu Tack®! Follow this step-by-step tutorial from our friends at Craft Invaders.

STEP 1 : MOULDING

To begin, mould some Blu Tack® into a ball and then roll it out into a circular shape.

STEP 2 : STAMPING

Press your decorative stamps into the Blu Tack® circle to imprint. Now peel the Blu Tack® circle away to expose the reverse print pattern.

STEP 3 : COLOURING

Use an ink pad or sponge to colour your Blu Tack® circle pattern.

STEP 4 : PRINTING

Press the paper or card down on to the coloured stamp and rub across its surface. If you are making cards, ensure you are printing the right way up!

STEP 5 : PEELING BACK

Peel back the card to reveal your print. Making a reverse print really is as simple as it looks.

STEP 6 : DECORATE

Use your reverse prints on homemade greeting cards and wrapping paper for an elegant look. You can even use them on DIY Christmas decorations.
