A Plate Full of Thanks

5 Materials
1 Hour
A great project for Thanksgiving or to use as a Hostess gift for any Holiday or Special Occasion.
A simple project using Vinyl from Styletech  and my Big Shot Die Cutting Machine.
To begin this simple project… 
I cut the word “Thanks” out of my glitter vinyl using a thin steel die (from Serendipity Stamps) and my Sizzix Big Shot Die-Cutting/Embossing Machine.
I cut out 8 for my large plate and one for my small plate. 

You can find a 10 assorted pack of 12×12 Glitter Self Adhesive Vinyl Sheets* on Amazon. (*affiliate link)
Because I only wanted the “thanks” around the edge of the plate
I cut the flourish off the bottom of the “k”.
After figuring out my plate placement, I placed my die-cut “thanks” onto a flat surface and picked up the die-cut with my Vinyl Transfer Tape*.
Once on the transfer paper I peeled back the protective layer and secured it in place on my plate.  I burnished the transferred die and removed the transfer paper.
Because I couldn’t help myself I added another die cut “Thanks” with the flourish intact onto a cute little thrift store find.

Use the plate as a Thanksgiving decoration or fill it up with a special treat and give away as a Thank You gift.

FYI…While I would not place the plates in the dishwasher, I did try to see how it would hold up to hand-washing.   It did fine.
