DIY Quick Rock Paperweight

Hi....
How often are you frazzled by the papers flying all over from your desk...right?
I am one of them.....My kid gets all these flyers from school which pile up on the table....
They kept getting knocked, and were falling all over the place.....That is when I felt the urgent need for a paperweight.....Thus, my Quick Rock Paperweight was born ;)
What best to hold down papers than a fairly good sized rock???
Ya, right!! ....So, I took a medium sized rock from my storage and painted it white.....
I was pondering over what design to paint when I saw one of my son's tattoos lying around....I liked this butterfly instantly :) 
When the color on the rock was dry, I applied the tattoo to the rock and left it to dry for a couple of minutes....
When it dried it looked like this:

Finally, I gave it a coat of sealer to lock in the tattoo....
It looks cool on my desk now....I love this project of mine...
Though it was instant, it turned out to be a beauty.....
I sometimes, also use it as a part of table decor..
