Useable Handprint Plates

OK! Lets try this again... It's loading! Yay!! Slowly and not very well, out of the 5 photos I canceled- (Why are they loading blank?) Here is 3 that will load!

Useable Handprint Plates

This was harder than expected... seeing as Phoenix is one and doesn't stop from sun-up to sun-down. But I thought it would make a great practical gift for the grandparents, plus the grandkids don't stay this little for long. So I persisted and got four beautiful little handprints and added a few flourishes to balance the look of the plate. On the back is a little quote from Milla, a love note from Phoenix and their age.

These plates are 'Corelle' Brand, great because they are durable and match the ones the grandparents already have
I used a Porcelain Pen (from Spotlight). Traced the kids hands, free hand drew flourishes and names

Baked them in the Oven... As per instructions on the Porcelain Pen

They can even go in the dishwasher! Sweet! You can't get anymore practical than that!
