Steps

  • Step 1
    Study animal images of the Aztecs and ancient Mexican people. Draw a 4x6" rectangle on a piece of paper. Draw your animal image inside the rectangle. On a larger sheet of tracing paper, trace the image with a dark pencil.
  • Step 2
    Flip the tracing paper over onto a 4x6" piece of Soft-Kut Block Printing Material. Rub the image with your finger; the graphite will transfer on to the Soft-Kut simply by the pressure of your hand.
  • Step 3
    Enhance the graphite image with black sharpie before cutting out the blank spaces with linoleum cutters.
  • Step 4
    Cut a 9x12" sheet of Smart-Fab in half, creating two 6x9" pieces. Cut a 1-1/2" triangle off the bottom to create a pennant notch. At the top of the pennant, use a 1/4" circle punch to create holes approximately 1/4" and 2" in from each side.
  • Step 5
    Using block printing Ink, print the design on the Smart-Fab pennant. String together the pennants and hang to display.
