Upgraded Plates

Good morning!!  Hope your weekend was wonderful.  They always go so fast.....don't they?  I recently found these large plates at a garage sale.  They are really not my style and they were pretty scratched up as well.....but I loved the size of them.  They needed a little TLC....so I thought I would give them a paint job and add a little cricut magic.
I painted one white and the other pink.  I used my cricut machine to create a stencil out of contact paper and painted the images on the plates.  Here's the after picture.....
I hope you all have a great Monday!
Thanks for reading!!

    1. Yes, get a Cricut machine! You can do so much with these little machines. I have just the smaller one...but love it and have gotten my money out of it!
