Cricut Platters

I finally got a Cricut for Christmas this last year. I haven't used as much as I've wanted to because of everything going on. But I did get a few projects done that I wanted to share with you. The two things I have in mind today are both platters. I got a large stack of old ceramic and/or ironstone platters for $1.00 at an auction awhile back. I used the Cricut to cut some vinyl words and pictures to put on them.

The first one I made as a gift for my sister in law. I used the Sure Cuts a Lot software and played around with different clip art I found online until I got it to look like I wanted. Here's the end result:

I thought it turned out great. My SIL is a big wino (like me) so she really liked it. The next platter I made I used a Cricut cartridge to make this:

I've got this in my living room right now. I was thinking of putting it in my store. But I love it so much, I might have to keep it. If anyone is interested in purchasing one, let me know. I could probably part with this one or else make a similar one with the other platters I have. ;)

I have some rehab projects in the works that I'm hoping to get finished early next week, so watch for those. Tomorrow I plan on showing you the stuff I got garage saleing last weekend.

Happy Crafting!
