    My New, Holiday Plates!

    I saw this tutorial on the Missouri Star Quilt Company's website, and just had to try it. I have so many, pretty scraps of fabric lying around and it was a wonderful way to use some of it up.

    i love your plates. i have made probably close to thirty, but not all with fabric.
    i have used either photographs or photo copies.
    i cut out just the center of either and modge podge it. then i take tissue paper and crinkle it, then flatten it a bit, and modge podge it. then when all is dry, i let sit overnight or longer i take a gold pen and go around the edge.
    i made these plate of my daugher and son-in-law's wedding picture, also my great nephew's baby picture for their parents and grandparents. please try these as these make wonderful gifts.

    Would you mind telling me where you bought the plates and about how much they cost. I'm thinking of giving this a try for a house warming gift...it's such a beautiful idea.

    Thanks! The plates were $3 each and I got them at Wal-Mart. I believe you can get them at most department stores and even a few crafting stores.

    They are adorable!! You could do your own for each holiday & would make great gifts too. Just watched the tute. Looks soooo easy. Wonder if you could use watered down white glue instead. Seems like it would work. Probably less expensive....

    I'm thinking Dollar Tree might be a source also. They do sometimes have pieces that aren't plastic. I just love these plates. Nice to have another option of something to do with fabric. Wouldn't it be nice to make one of these plates, fill them with cookies, fudge, a bundt cake or fruit, and make coordinating placemats........ hmm. Thanks so much for sharing this with us.

    That's exactly what I made these for! I plan to fill them with cookies and give them to my neighbors for Christmas. We normally just exchange cookies in little holiday oriented plastic containers, but I thought this would be so much nicer!
