Pretty Plate

Happy Wednesday!

I had bought this plate for 59 cents at Goodwill quiet awhile ago and finally decided to do something with it.  I was going to put vinyl on it but the texture is bumpy so didn't think that would work too well.  I think it is a beautiful plate and had a vision so I started thinking.

I am still playing with my Cricut and finding out different things you can do with it so I decided to use the pens to write something instead.  Once I got it on the paper, I trimmed the edges with decorative scissors and distressed the edges. I can't figure out why the font spaces some things the way it does but oh well.  I then weaved the ribbon and Tada!!  I love it!!

Not bad for under a buck huh :)

I also had found this at Goodwill and when I saw it I wanted to redo it for my Mom for her apartment as she has a tendency to scatter papers everywhere lol. 

So I chose one of her favorite colors which is purple and went to town.

This is one of the flowers I made out of card stock so it is a little extra special for her :)

Then I was able to play with my felt to make a flower out of it. I want to put it on one of the totes that I'm doing.  I decided to put a few feathers on it also to complete all the colors being used so here it is :)

Linky Parties I'm doing today:

I love plates like that, they can be made so cute with ribbon and lettering, good job.
Love the magazine holder. Is that fabric or paper that you used to cover it? Cute flowers too.

Very cute plate! So versatile with being able to change out the ribbon.
