We are at our little cottage in Dalarna and we are fixing it up. So we are able to use it even in the winter.
Amongst other things, I mentioned how wonderful they are for creating custom embellishments without the need for any fancy pants equipment. Yep, waterslide decal paper is a truly fab product, though as great as it is, there is one drawback – although it’s somewhat tough it’s not especially durable.

If you’re already familiar with magic decal coating paper then please excuse my tardy excitement, though for everyone else who is just getting to the party now too, feel free to start throwing the streamers! My recently aquired assortment of SLOM jars from IKEA were awaiting some DIY craftiness and seemed the perfect victims candidates for my first magic decal experiment.
Materials: Expedit 4 draw unit, wood stain, wood cladding, laser or Acetone

I had a lot of fun planing and putting together stuff for my vintage birthday party.
