Repurpose pretty paper plates?

Steph knepperVickymcreationsLynn


I have some pretty floral paper plates I'd like to create something using. I'm not looking for craft ideas for children. Thinking something with mod podge but not sure what the final project would be, so looking for ideas! The plates aren't solid floral. The center is white, as what a cup would sit on if it were a saucer.

    if you want a patten or design layout, then send us a picture.

    If you want to mod lodge them, then what do you want to be the substrate?

    I guess that's what I'm trying to do is get ideas as to what they could 'become'! I know one can mod podge napkins onto all sorts of items, wood, jars, canvas, etc, so I was wondering what I could create using the plates (final product)? The design would be the floral on the plate itself

    This round up of ideas is for wicker plate holders but I reckon with modpodge or varnish you could adapt some of the ideas to suit you

    I looked up repurposing paper plates and this link had the cutest organizer made out of paper plates-it looks easy and is functional, too.

      I checked the website but I'm not finding a way to search for paper plate ideas. I'm seeing lots of craft ideas, but not plates! I googled what you said you did, and Mollymoo isn't coming up in my search either! She looks like she has cute ideas, but not finding the organizer!
