Make Your Own Personalized Photo Ring Dish!

Make Your Own Personalized Photo Ring Dish! (click through for tutorial I love a good ring dish. Especially if you love to do thin stacking rings like I do, it’s a really good idea to have a ring dish at strategic locations in your house (next to the bed, in the bathroom, by the kitchen sink) so you always have a spot nearby when you take off your rings.

To make the dish extra special, we’re teaming up with our long time friends at Canon USA to help personalize these with your own photos and images using water-activated decal paper. Here’s how:

waterslide decal paper
-water-based polyurethane
foam craft brushes
-white ring dish (I used small appetizer plates)
Canon PIXMA MG7720 photo printer

Make Your Own Personalized Photo Ring Dish! (click through for tutorial)First, you’ll want to choose the photo(s) you want to put on your ring dish. Resize your image to fit the bottom of whatever ring dish you choose and print your image onto the decal paper.

The PIXMA MG7720 printer works great for this type of project because the printing quality and color is great, and the images look amazing on the dish. 

Cut out your image and submerge in room temperature water until the decal slides off the backing. Cover the bottom of your dish with a thin layer of turpentine and place your decal on top.

Allow decal to completely dry. Seal your plate with a coat of water-based polyurethane, and once the poly is dry, it’s time to add your rings!

Since this is a small craft and relatively inexpensive to make, these ring dishes would be perfect presents or favors at a small party (or maybe use a photo of you and your besties and make one for each girl in the group).

I wouldn’t wash these in the dishwasher, so just wipe out with a damp cloth as needed. Now that I have a bunch of new ring dishes, I guess i’s time to go ring shopping to fill them up with goodies! xo. Laura
