homemade decorative plates

I looked and looked for 2 plates to hang above my pantry door, but didn't find any that I really loved...or wanted to spend money on. I was at the dollar store and saw some plates (for a dollar of course:) and thought...hey, want not just make some plates.

I used brown, green and yellow vinyl and
the storybook cartridge (which is awesome).


I didn't really have a plan at first. I picked a few shapes that I really liked and cut them out in a few different sizes and placed them till I liked how it looked.
I didn't use my transfer paper on the first shape and ended up pulling it off...with all the little cuts it was just sticking all over my hands...the transfer paper made it MUCH easier to put it just where I wanted.


I decided to do a little monogram on one of them too.

And there you go. So fast. So easy.

SO cheap!



I'm linkin' to these parties.
