I haven’t always been a blogger, but I HAVE always been a crafter! SO every once in a while I’ll fondly remember something I made B.B. (before blog) and want to share it with you, thus my Friday Flashbacks! This week? My homemade You are Special Plate for birthday’s!
I grew up with the classic red you are special plate (in fact I own one… somewhere). But when I saw this at a church craft day I knew I HAD to make one. I hand painted the cupcake wrapper, candle and flame (my favorite part- it turned out amazing). Then used dowels in different shapes to get the polka-dots. Then puffy paint of some kind (sorry, it was too long ago to remember what kind) for the words and the frosting and sprinkles! Let it dry, paint over it with clear something or other and put it in the kiln (the teacher had one- how FUN would that be!)
