You need to upload the photo to a site like Photobucket or Flickr first, then copy the URL information and paste it into the field that appears when you click on the photo icon above (the box with the two mountains and a sun in the sky).

Can't wait to see your bands!

Has anyone thought about or tried, using duck tape sheets and cutting out either shapes or lining the whole band that way? I happened to see these sheets in a craft store and they had tons of patterns, seemed like it might work but since I haven't tried decorating a band I'm not sure if it'd stay well or not.

I believe something similar to that is sold with Disney characters. There's a link in one of the previous pages but can't remember which.

Both were done with nail polish free hand drawn. Just took a few coats and patience to let it dry in between. Then a clear top coat.
My son has been wearing them for 3 days now. No cracking or anything. So I'd say the nail polish is the best route.

We got our bands today, and the good news is my sliders fit. The bad news is, they don't fit over both sides… just the side with the holes. I couldn't get the slider over the little prong things that attach to the holes. Also, my sliders fit on the adult bands perfectly, but are a little large for the kid bands. So it was sort of successful.

Yes, I used tattoos and clear nail polish. It was so easy! The tattoos came from Amazon. This method works best on these light colors. My son had to have a red magic band, and it is hard to see the tattoos on red.

My DD changed her red to a blue since we thought the princess tattoos we got wouldn't show. I have pink and will also be using princesses, DS green for toy story and DH picked the red. He's got the avengers. Can't wait to get mine.

Oh, I tried so hard to talk DS into green for Toy Story tattoos. But, he is six and stubborn! I considered telling him that they were out of red. But, I figured that he had to wear the band on his arm all week. He should have the color he wanted.
