If you're anything like me, you are completely ga-ga over eyelet this summer. Well, I don't know that I really ever stopped wearing it, but at least now I'm not the only one. So while you are sprucing up for your post-Fourth, weekend get-together, take a tip from Martha and spruce up those solid color paper plates just wasting away in your pantry with a pretty eyelet look (and no, you should not be entertaining this weekend with the American Flag plates you bought on sale at Target for 50% off yesterday).
Now, Martha has her method and I have mine. So to be fair, I'll lay out both for you here. Don't think I'm trying to "throw down" with Martha or anything (not that I wouldn't totally be up for the challenge, Martha, in case you're reading *cough*), but sometimes if you don't like how something turns out, it's nice to have an alternate plan. You know, like an evacuation plan, a birth plan, the 5-year plan. You get my drift; plans are good.
Monogram Momma's Plan
As I alluded to above, I don't have a bunch of decorative hold punches just lying around my house (to be fair, it's probably b/c I hate scrapbooking). If you do, then that great for you. But if not, then my plan is simple. Head out to your local party supply store and pick up some white paper doilies that are slightly smaller than your solid colored plates. Holding one doily in the air, spray the back of it with spray adhesive, and attach it to the front of your colored plate. Period. The end. It's really that easy.
