Freezer-Paper Fix

Instead of tracing printable patterns onto freezer paper, print them. To do it without the paper slipping or jamming, cut freezer paper to 8-1⁄2×11 inches; place it shiny side down on an 8-1⁄2×11-inch piece of copy paper. Iron ¼ inch along the edge that will feed first into your printer to seal the papers together.
