Hello beautiful people.  Today I am going to show you a very SIMPLE holiday gift for the grandparents, or better yet, the great grandparents.  Because let’s be honest, usually great grandparents have everything they want already. Thus making them difficult to buy for. But one thing they always seem to love is pictures of their grandbabies.

When I went to CHA (the largest craft industry tradeshow) last year one of my favorite booths was Craft Attitude.  They had this laserjet printable film product that can virtually be used on any surface.  They had it on tennis shoes, jackets and pillows!  Well that was back in January and I had yet to use it.  I thought this would be a great time to bust it out and test it.

I had this pretty milk glass plate I found at a yard sale years ago for a quarter.  I didn’t know what the heck I was going to do with it but I pulled it out the other day and thought this needed a cute picture of my kids on it for Mimi and PawPaw’s Christmas gift.

1.  I used my Silhouette studio program to design the circle and cut it out.  You could easily use Microsoft Word and scissors if you wanted to.  Then I printed it out onto the Craft Attitude film. Note: While Craft Attitude has all different products – they are all the same film.  They are just named differently for marketing purposes so I linked to the cheapest one on Amazon.

2. It says to wait 2-3 hours for the ink to dry completely.  So I did as I was told.  Then I peeled off the film from the paper backing and used a spray adhesive on the back of it.

3. Then I applied it to the center of the plate rubbing the bubbles out as I went.

4.  Lastly I tied a hounds tooth ribbon through the holes in the plate and hot glued a bow in place.  A simple and inexpensive gift you can personalize for anyone.  And plates like these are super easy to find at thrift stores.
