Prayer Flags Printed on Dryer Sheets

I thought this video shows a really clever way to recycle dryer sheets and use them to make prayer flags. If you don't have a printer or one that prints color, I'm guessing you could also use block printing techniques by carving some rubber stamps like Mary Jane spoke about in an earlier post. I love the delicate transparent feel and the possibilities for layering.


  1. Love the translucency!

    (except for someone like me who is highly chemically sensitive..
    I get severe headaches and neurolgical meltdown with drier sheets... I wonder are there now "green" chemical drier sheets?)

  2. love this too!
    v, there are environmentally friendly sheets - method, mrs. meyers, seventh generation - and i am sure there are more...
    thanks, beth!

  3. This is wonderful! I'd been saving my used dryer sheets and had a nice little, but looked at them one day and wondered why I was keeping...so in the trash they went. How dumb was that? Need to start keeping them again. Love the idea of printing on them. Thanks for sharing this!

  4. Thanks for this post, Beth. I have a lot of ideas swirling for this project and this gives me another technique to think about.
