Personalized Plate for $1

Today, I am writing about how I made that cute song plate.

If you have missed the last two posts, catch up with them here to see why I made these and here to see how to do the cups.

You will need:

Set your oven to 150. You can draw/doodle/write while the oven is heating up.

I decided to write “their” song on it. Never Gonna Be Alone by Nickelback.

I looked up the lyrics, just to make sure I was getting every single word correct, even though I basically know this song by heart.. For two reasons.. 1 – Because I just love this song. 2 – This was the song played at Kade’s prom, so we listened to it only 185,083,850,568 times while practicing the dance.

I ended up having a little bit of white space {literally} in the middle and it looked a little lame if I just left it like that, so I drew a heart and wrote their names on one side and their wedding date on the other.

When you are finished drawing on the plate, stick it in the oven for 30 minutes. This will make it more permanent than it already is. It should be dishwasher safe.

**The plate looks like I never messed up {in fact, Matt was surprised that I “didn’t” mess up one time} but I really did. I just realized it quickly and rubbed it off. So don’t fret if you mess up! It comes off, but you just have to act fast!

The possibilities are endless on what you can draw/doodle/write on here.

I got this plate at the Dollar Tree and I already had the sharpies, so the total cost of this gift was $1! It would be nice if you included a stand for the plate to sit on. You can get them at Wal-mart for like $3. I’m sure they have some at Michaels, Jo Ann’s, and Hobby Lobby, but our town isn’t cool enough to have any of those stores.

So now you have seen how to do the cups and the plate.

Tomorrow I will show you how to do the Jar of Dates!
