Extract from

Microcrafts: Tiny Treasures to Make and Share by Margaret McGuire

Published by Quirk Books

It is a small world, after all!

Here are step-by-step instructions for making tiny teddy bears, little ladybugs, petite porcupines, itsy-bitsy bikinis, and much, much more! Microcrafts shows crafters how to create dozens of miniature treasures, each no larger than a spool of thread. No previous crafting experience or pricey materials are necessary—just a love of all things small!

Instructions

  • Step 1

    Print your images using an inkjet printer and plain paper as a test run. When you’re satisfied with how they look, print the images on the glossy side of the decal paper. Print 1 sheet at a time to avoid jams.

  • Step 2

    Allow the ink to dry fully, about a few minutes. Remove the clear side of the adhesive sheet and apply it to the printed decal paper. Cut around each tattoo design.

  • Step 3

    Ink yourself! Choose a spot for your tiny tattoo. Remove the adhesive backing from the decal paper and apply it to your skin, pressing firmly for about 20 seconds. Use a sponge or cloth to wet the paper for 60 seconds and then peel away the paper to reveal the design.
