Don't you just LOVE wednesday's? Say hello to wednesday "hello wednesday" It's all down hill from now on to the weekend - yippee!!!
It was Sydney's 5th birthday last Thursday (how can she be 5!), this was the first year she had to go to school on her birthday and was a little put out that there was no party!
What she didn't know was that it was all planned for after school, just a little one at the office. We had everything a good childrens party should have, cakes, chocolate, sticky buns........all laid out on party plates.
OK, OK, Auntie Ali may have gone a little OTT with the plates, but Syd loved them and insisted on taking them home. Come on, plain white plates are soooo boring.
All you need to make people smile (or think that you have too much time on your hands!), is a single hole punch, cheap white plates and ribbon.
Beacuse I decorated quite a few plates, I made myself a template out of paper and used a protractor thinga ma-jig, you know the semi circular plastic thing you have left from your school geometry set. I drew round a plate onto the paper and cut it out. I then found the centre and worked out how many holes I wanted around the plate, marked the paper with a dot. With the single hole punch, I punched all the holes in the template.
I then placed the template onto the plate to transfer the hole, the plates I had were covered in a plastic type film and I could not find any pen that would mark it, so i just kept the template on the plate and hole punched the plate through it.
Find some pretty ribbon, I am sure you all have some pretty ribbon! If not you will find lots and lots here www.craftyribbons.com . Thread the ribbon through the holes and tie a bow, (Bow Tutorial HERE). Sit back and listen to all the compliments and comments!!!!
These would look great for a wedding, matching in with the bridesmaids colours, or for a christening in pink or blue, I hope I have given you some food for thought for this weeks Hello Wednesday.
