The only thing is, they can only be used once. Thats why I think it is a bit of a waste of money buying one sheet, which costs on average £2+. So the alternative is to make your own! Hence the reason the word paper was mentioned in the title.
Its a fairly easy process and all you need is:
-A sheet (or pack) of tansparent printable water decal paper
-A computer and printer
-A pair of scissors
-A bowl/cup of water
All you have to do is first make or find the images you want to make into the decals online and put them altogether on a page on something like Microsoft PowerPoint or Publisher and then print it out! You can print to whatever size your printer will allow and you can print virtually anything!

When the topcoat has dried fully, fill a cup or bowl with water and, holding the very tip of the image, submerge it into the water. Some brands may differ but the one I use says to keep it underwater for 30-60 seconds. Regardless of the time, you will know when it is done because it will start to peel away from the backing paper.
Once it starts to peel off, place a small corner onto your nail in position and press down. While you do that, slowly slide the backing paper away and press the decal firmly onto your nail. I recommend using a tissue over your finger when you press the decal down because it will absorb any water remaining and help the decal stay.
The final step is to topcoat it to seal it all in!
See, easy! Here is a quick look I created:
