Plastic Plate Upcycle

I have this stack of cheap plastic plates I bought several years ago for my RV.
I tried to sell them in a garage sale last year,but in the end they were still on my table.
So I've been holding on to them knowing I could do something crafty with them.
Then the other morning it hit me and I knew what to do.
So here's what I started with:

I took some cream colored scrap book paper, cut it into strips and covered each plate.

I wanted each plate to mimic a specific flower on the curtains in my kitchen.
I just started cutting out shapes to make flowers and modge podged them on the plates.
Then gave the whole plate a good coat of modge podge

When it dried, I flipped the plate over and cut the edges off with an exacto knife.
I am so in LOVE with how they look!

Whatcha think?
I can't stop staring at them...literally!
Hope you enjoy!

Much Love~
