Item #CS15067

Other Supplies
Plain zipper bag
Two photocopies of photos
Foam paintbrush


  1. Wash and iron the zipper bag.
  2. Make photocopies (not inkjet copies) on a dry toner/laser copier (the kind at a local copy shop). Some inkjet printers will work but most smear so be sure to test if you want to try an inkjet copy. Trim your copies to fit the front of the zipper bag. Tear the edges of the paper to create a distressed look.
  3. Coat the photo with a thick layer of Mod Podge Photo Transfer. The photo should be totally white with no image showing through.
  4. Place the photos Mod Podge side down onto the zipper bag. Smooth with your fingers from the center. Press the corners and edges to be sure they stick. Wait 24 hours before proceeding to the final step.
  5. Wet the image and wait 2 minutes. Working in a circular motion, gently rub off the paper to reveal the image below. You may have to do this step a few times before all the paper is removed.
