DIY Plate Designs
We were wanting to make some plates for Mother’s Day gifts this year so we asked Makit if they would help us out with this. They were totally on board! So they sent us the the plate forms and told to go crazy. Ask and you shall receive! :) Here are the first set of plates we created.
– Stamps & ink
– Bling (in this case buttons)
For my plate I worked with letter stamps to create a colorful pattern of I love yous. I used 4 different fonts and rotated them with a period between for separation. It was a little bit of work to keep the fonts and colors going in the proper pattern…but nothing good is easy. ;)
My little artists used markers for their plates. They spent lots of time making little details and various important marks to finish each piece.
There was also a special button used in this design.
We sent them to Makit to put our designs on the plates.
We LOVED how these turned out. We will definitely be designing our own dish-ware for our outdoor dining this summer!
What do you think? What would you put on your plate? We would love to see what you create and they make the most adorable, handmade, long lasting gifts too!!
Note: There’s a good chance we didn’t do things the proper way…BUT if you can scan your work on a flatbed scanner the possibilities are really endless (especially if you’re ok if the results vary a bit).
