I got several (OK…more than a few, less than a lot) emails asking about the monogram plate that was visible in the picture in this post.
Here’s a better view:
My friend Jami and I made them late one Friday night. It may have even been Saturday morning at that point.
Here’s how the plate started out.
Jami picked them up at a thrift store for 75 cents.
We Mod Podged fabric around the edges. The fabric bends around the contours of the plate more easily than paper does. You don’t actually need Fabric Mod Podge to do this, regular works fine.
Then, we cut out a circle of paper the size of the flat part in the center of the plate and Mod Podged that down.
Then the same thing with a smaller circle.
And finally we printed out our monogram and cut it out with an Exacto knife and Mod Podged it in the center. Don’t do it that way. It takes way too long. Print your monogram on your paper that you’re going to use for the smaller circle and then cut the circle around it. Or use a Cricut. Or rub on letters. Or something. Just don’t do it the way we did.
Jami also made one that says “Bon Apetit!” in the center. I’m going to go harass her for a picture…stay tuned.
