    I read this on Penny Halgren site this a.m. & thought I'd pass it on.

    "... dicovered that the packaging/wrapping paper around reams of office stationer's normal printer paper has been waxed lightly on the inside, I suppose to protect the product inside.

    I cut a section off the wrapping/packaging, ironed it lightly to my test fabric, cut the 2 layers to perfect printer feed-roll size and simply photocopied my hand-drawing on, resulting in a perfect line drawing image for me now to use for my embroidery."

    Cool, but I don't use enough reams of paper to have a supply of wrappers. Full sheet printer labels also work really well (like Avery 8165).
