Project #129: Patterned plates
These plates will add some fun to every party table or make a great gift. Just add some homemade merengue and your set.
Step 1 – Prep the plates
Choose the plates you want to decorate. The ones I used are from our local thrift shop. Wash and dry the plates.
Step 2 – Cut your pattern
Cut out the desired motif with scissors, scalpel or punch. I used a hole punch for dots and a scalpel and scissors for triangles in different sizes.
Step 3 – Decorate your plate
This is the fun part. Put the punched/cut pieces in the bowl with water for a bit. Slide the decor foil from the backing paper onto the plate and smoothen with fingers from the centre toe the edges. Remove any moisture with a paper kitchen towel.
Place as many dots/triangles on the plate as you like. To get a playful effect; don’t forget to go over the edges, or drop a dot or triangle on the back of your plate.
Step 4 – dry & bake
