Step Five:  Uncurl water slide paper and gently lift out of water as soon as the paper uncurls.

Step Six:  Slide the clear image unto your plate and gently use a dry cloth to “squeegy” the water underneath the water slide so it is flat.

Now you have a trinket dish for rings or the keys or paper clips if you take it to the office!
