I have been using magnifying glasses a lot for this Detective party: for a banner, labels and door sign. I think it is a cute element and it's been very easy to integrate to the decor and printables.
Now these decorated plates are going to look fun on the table ! There are the only thing I didn't Washi Tape !!! I think they'll look cute just like that ! They should give the dining table a good pop of colours.
They are super simple to make and you only need:
- Small plastic disposable plates
- Construction paper
- Glue strip
- Pencil, scissors
1: Cut strips of paper. I cut mine 2cm wide so they would come just above the plates top edge.
2. Glue several strips together until you have a piece of paper long enough to go round the plate.
Close the loop, glue and cut excess paper.
3. Hand draw a handle on a piece of paper or card and use it as a template.
Draw the handle shape on the construction paper and cutout.
4. Create a small tab by folding the end of the handle.
Glue onto the paper loop already created.
And you are done !
Now if, like me, you are not happy with the handle not staying up/horizontal, just use a small piece of paper folded in two to create a little leg at the end of the handle.
