  7. Find an image you want to use online and bring it into a program to create an all over pattern. Then load the paper into the printer with the tissue side in the proper direction to be printed on. (NOTE: We brought the tree image into a Google doc, then copied and pasted them all of the document, rotating them as seen below.)
