Personalized Candie plaque with polka dots and glitter

Candie PlaqueI will be the first to admit that there is A LOT going on with this plaque that I made for my friend Candie Cooper. But, sometimes you sit down to make a project and you never know what you are going to end up with. I sat at my table with a wood plaque, and after digging around in my stash and playing a bit, this is what resulted. I kinda like it!

Gather These Supplies

IMG_4138Of course you need to get that plaque painted first. I used the Warm White and Coffee Latte around the edges and on the back.  You don’t need to paint the top (the paper is going there).

IMG_4152I used a fun little liner brush to add the blue.

IMG_4139Paint your chipboard cameos as well. I added some Hologram Extreme Glitter on these babies!

IMG_4118While all that is drying, cut the paper to fit the top of the plaque.

IMG_4153Add a medium layer of Mod Podge to the top of the plaque . . . place the paper on top, smooth and let dry for 15 – 20 minutes.

IMG_4154Give the entire plaque a top coat of Mod Podge. Let dry and add a second layer.

IMG_4161Add the ruffle ribbon to the back with craft glue and let dry. 

IMG_4162Start gluing everything down. I have no idea what I’m doing in this photo, actually. I can’t remember. Haha!

IMG_4163I used the stick pin to pierce a fabric circle, then put Dimensional Magic on top. Then I glued it onto the plaque.

Candie PlaqueI hope Candie will enjoy her new plaque. Now here’s an idea for you – grab a wood surface and dig through your stash. Embellish it to the nines, use Mod Podge and then tell me about it!
