Here's another easy way to preserve a family story. Tell the story on a plate! These decorated plates aren't meant for eating on so don't grab your dinner dishes. Use someone else's best china! You know...the one-of-a-kind plates that you see at your local thrift shop or yard sales. It's an easy project. All you need is the plate, decorative paper, picture and embellishments. Oh, and let's NOT forget the Mod Podge!
Check out Cathie Filian's instructions here. Scroll down to the bottom of her post to see the complete instructions.Kia Howey, at Urban Paper Loft, created a few altered plates of her own. I love how she highlighted each picture with the personalized inscriptions.
Wish I had time to do something with this idea for Valentines Day. But I know my limitations...and trust me, it's NOT happening THIS week! But I do have birthdays and Mother's day to think about. Time to start looking for plates!
