Block Project/Plate Project

I was inspire to make this cute little 'sassy girl' block from some blocks I had seen at It's A Sign blog. I love the pictures she decoupaged on hers but I decided not to with mine to make it more generic. I actually made one of these blocks for my granddaughters birthday next week that was more personalized (I can't post a picture of it because she might see it on her mommy's blog). I was happy with how they both turned out. Another side of it.
And yet another side.
And got it, another side, well the top and side anyway.
The Valentine plate {shown on a plate rack with another Valentine plate in my header} was super easy to make. I found this plate at Ross, it is important to find a plate with cutouts around the edge so you can weave ribbon in and out. I cut a red vinyl heart with 'be my Valentine' on it with my vinyl cutter.
A close up of the edge of the plate.
The finished plate.
