Keepsake Dishes Turn children's drawings into decorative plates. Scan the art and print onto water-slide transfer paper, available at crafts stores. Trim closely around the printed image, then place the paper in water until the decal slips easily from the backing. Position the decal on the plate and smooth out wrinkles and bubbles. When dry, seal the artwork with spray varnish. Mom will cherish the printed plates forever. Note: Plates are for decorative use only.
