Looking for an easy DIY party favor idea? These melamine appetizer plates with vinyl decals make a cute little gift!
What I used:
- adhesive vinyl from Happy Crafters
- transfer paper
- small melamine appetizer plates (I purchased mine a few years ago from Target but check the dollar stores)
What I did:
Measure flat center area of plates. Mine allowed for a 3.5 inch square design. Open the Silhouette Studio Design software and create words using font/text in a size that fits. I created six different designs.
Load adhesive vinyl into the vinyl cutter color side (vinyl side) up.
Adjust blade setting for vinyl.
Weed away excess vinyl from the design.
Apply transfer paper over the vinyl lettering.
Cut into individual designs.
Rub the transfer paper over each piece. I just grabbed a hard plastic name tag with a straight edge. You could also use a credit or gift card.
Peel away wax paper backing, transferring vinyl to the transfer paper.
Place onto plate.
Rub with plastic card and remove transfer paper.
Simple but so many options. Try different colors, different fonts, personalize with quotes, monograms, shapes or words.
Cute inexpensive gift to include with a card or gift basket or to use as party favors.
Perfect for keeping tabs on jewelry, paperclips on a desk, keys in an entryway, spare change in the laundry room, Q-tips in the bathroom, etc.
