Step 1:
Design your labels. You can use any photo editing program, Photoshop, Picnik, Paint Shop Pro, etc.
Make sure the image is not bigger than the ribbon.

 Step 2:
Flip your image horizontally so your wording won’t be backwards when you transfer the image to the ribbon.
You can flip the image in the photo editing program.

If you don’t flip the image before printing the image will be backwards on the ribbon once it is ironed on.

Step 3:
Print your image on the Iron on Transfer Paper.
Print as many as you can on one piece of paper so you don’t waste the paper.

 Step 4:
Cut out the decal.
Cut as close to the image as you can so the transfer paper does not show as much.
Iron image half way down on a 3″ piece of ribbon.
You can also fold the ribbon in half and iron the image on following the bottom seam.
Be sure to leave enough room at the top to sew the label into your clothes.
When ironing, press down hard.
Make sure you don’t peel back paper backing once it has cooled.
