I've been looking for a way to make some things to give as Christmas presents this year. Last year, I made calendars. This year I wanted to try something different.
I came across an article about decal making. It looked pretty interesting, so I stopped and bought some Lazertran Decal Paper for inkjet printers. I thought I would try making some coasters using decals of some of my photos and some white 4 inch X 4 inch ceramic tiles. I experimented today, and it works great! All I need now is some clear overcoat to put a protective layer on the tile. I think I might even try to figure out how to make some so that they can go on some white Christmas ornaments (balls).
Anyway, here's a link to their site—I bought mine at Blick Art materials. The paper isn't cheap (about $22.00 for 10 8 ½ X 11 sheets), but it allows you to do something a little bit different with your photos. Be sure to get the inkjet[/b] type—they have them for fabrics and other surfaces, too.

Sounds like a cool idea, Rick. I may have to pursue this. Thanks for sharing.
