Dichroic Decal Paper Makes Creating Intricate Designs Easy!
Designing with dichroic has never been easier - simply cut any shape with scissors or decorative craft punches and apply like a decal!

Compatible with any COE, so you can use the same Dichroic Decal Paper for all your fused creations. Sheet measurements may vary. Each sheet will be equivelent to 1/4 of an 8-1/2" x 11" sheet. Sheet may measure 4-1/2" x 5-1/2" or 2-3/4" x 8-1/2".
