Well, the internet says "no, you absolutely cannot."

The internet lies.

I was wondering if it might be possible to draw right on the paper, without using a scanner or printer, and get a nice result.

Guess what? YOU TOTALLY CAN!

I made a video tutorial, and I'm pretty stoked by how well it works!

Anyone else want to try and post their results?

Fantastic idea! I have a package of iron-on paper that I've been waiting to use the next time I have access to a specialty colour printer (mine is basic black and white only!), and this is a great way to use it up.

I'm going to go iron-on crazy today!!!!

And they seem to hold up as well as traditionally printed paper does after being washed and dried!

Thanks!
