Frugal Friday: Valentine's Plate

I saw these white square plates at Dollar Tree and picked up a couple.  I love using plates for decorating and I liked that these ones were square (and of course I couldn't pass up something for just a buck!).

For this plate I used my favorite Cricut Cartridge: Create a Critter.  This cartridge has so many cute animals and fun little images and accessories that I've used on lots of projects.


I just cut everything out on vinyl and applied it to the plate. (You could also cut it out on cardstock and mod podge it to a plate.)

Here are the sizes I cut:
  • branch - 4/12 inches
  • small bird - 2 inches
  • large bird - 2 1/2 inches (flipped image)
  • heart - 2 inches

It was a super quick and easy project, my favorite kind! I was excited to use some turquoise vinyl on this.  Turquoise is my favorite color and now that I have a little on this plate I think I'm going to incorporate some more turquoise into my Valentine's decor.
