diy mother's day quote plate

looks like the next holiday coming up 
is cinco de mayo.
but this post has nothing to do 
with that holiday.
it's about mom's day and quotes and plates.

only cuz i just realized mom's day comes 
after cinco day but what the heck, 
i will do my share of cactus and sombrero or 
whatever soon enough.

for now, let's talk about these diy mother's day quote plates!
it starts out with these plastic clear plates i grabbed at target for 4 bucks.
(note the size of the center which we'll
 talk about in a few secs)

first grab a sheet of copy paper.
cut that circle out and lay aside for a minute.
(jeepers that's terribly hard to photograph!)

next up is to choose a quote.
i used this site and picked out mine,
but do whatever works for you of course.

then i went into microsoft word to fit
 a 6 1/2 inch circle space
 (thus the above mentioned size)
and then printed it backwards like so:
now it's time to place that circle template over your quote and trace it around like so:
next step:
then grab a paint pen and copy your quote on the
BACK of your plate.
when you're done, remove your paper quote from the front.
just let it go, let it go...
now you can see your quote from the front!
draw some doodles on the
BACK of the plate to spruce it up.
then color in.
ooo how pretty :)
don't forget some little hearts to fill
 in your letters.
then last step is to use dishwasher gloss.
and there you have it!
ready to give to your mom or if she's in heaven like mine,
i am sure you know a sweet
mom out there who'd like this :)
as for me i know a bunch so looks like 
i'm gonna be making a bunch more!
