  5. Find the movie poster on Google images and *follow directions on transfer paper to print it out*. NOTE: this is a licensed image so you cannot sell it, it is for personal use only! Print it out on printable fabric paper, make sure to set it with heavy resolution.

  6. Iron image to white fabric according to package directions. I wanted my pillow double-sided so I used another vintage Mexican movie poster. Cut fabric to use as the background for the posters.
