Yesterday I went to put some things away into the craft closet and saw my contact paper. I took advantage of a few minutes of free time to try three contact paper transfers with scraps of paper. I used clear contact paper that I have had in the closet for perhaps 3 years. I was following directions in a book. The directions were simple. Put the contact paper on an image to transfer. Rub. Soak. Rub paper off.
It failed miserably. The images were barely visible.
I also noticed the contact paper was not very sticky at all, which I found odd.
