-Set up your item on the sheet. Put something under the sheet to prop it up if you need to.
-Take your picture. If you have one, use a tripod. If not, look into getting at least a small one. This will help LOADS when it comes to focusing the camera and prevents camera shake.
-Use Picnik. I LURVE it! Here's my process for that:
-tweak exposure and contrast
-check color saturation & adust if needed
-Use a filter if it calls for it (I LOVE lomo, holga, and ortonish, as well as selective color)
-resize while saving the file (saves a step)
-Voila! I save a ton of time this way.
That is pretty much the very same way I do mine, minus going outside....it is 104 degrees here, and I have a TON of pics to take.
