Hello Spring Plate Decoration

**I will still be picking weekly giveaway winners on Mondays from comments on posts throughout the week. I just won't be putting the disclaimer at the top of every post ;) Keep those comments coming!


TGIF! This was such a quick week! I will take it :) Thank you for all of your sweet comments and emails you sent about Foxy! I am amazed how many of you have your own rescue dogs! I personally think it's the only way to go now. You are all so sweet.

I wanted to share a fun project that you can display in your home. I made mine for Spring but you could really do it for any holiday or occasion!


I bought a $3 cheap-o plate from Walmart. This would be fun with an old family keepsake plate or even a garage sale find! Then I used my cutting machine to do two large circles to fit perfectly inside the plate. Just measure your own plate for your dimensions. And I used my trust Scor-Tape to stick it down.


Then I just decorated the plate with circle punches, embellishments and a banner title. I used the Blossoms & Butterflies Stack and embellishment that has been around forever but I still love it! 

I think you could really use your imagination and use this concept for so many different themes! It's just so happy to look at :) 

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! Back on Monday! And I am SUPER EXCITED for May 1st to get here so I can tell you some big news you will be excited to hear!
