May's Plaque Attack -- A Tribute to Grandmothers!

Mother's Day is fast approaching, and I think it's appropriate that May's Plaque Attack pay homage to the exceptional grandmothers in our lives. There are many special women in my life that are fabulous examples of grandmotherhood to me -- my mother and mother-in-law, my sister and sisters-in-law, and many of my friends. This plaque could be given to any one of them!


There are some beautiful greeting cards available for Mother's Day with very sweet sentiments, but these plaques actually cost less than a greeting card and give the recipient something a little more substantial and heartfelt!


Collect the following materials to make a plaque of your own:
  • 6 1/2" square wooden plaque {available online or at craft stores like Hobby Lobby}
  • 1 piece of scrapbook paper 
  • acrylic craft paint or spray paint in a color to compliment your scrapbook paper 
  • clear matte spray sealer
  • Mod Podge {matte finish is best}
  • paint brush
For a tutorial on how to make these plaques, go here!

Thank you for sharing. This is going to my Mothers and Grandmas.

Mommy and her munchkins said...

I used the spray sealer and the ink still bled terribly. So I ended up it without the mod podge. It's cute, but just not the same. Any thoughts? How long do you let the ink dry out of the printer?

Suzanne said...

Mommy (above comment).... I have an ink jet printer and have never had a problem with the ink running when I use the spray sealer. I usually seal the printing right after printing the page. I do let the spray sealer dry for a couple of hours before I apply it to the plaque and mod podge it. Sorry it didn't work for you...
