Frugal Finds: Paper Plate

Welcome back to another edition of Frugal Finds fans! This month I challenged the ladies to come up with a unique way to use paper plates. After all, they are made of paper and it is what we love to play with most here! What a spectrum of projects here did our gals come up with from layouts to home decor each idea is so unique it will have your head spinning the next time a paper plate is set in front of you-- I bet you won't even want to eat off of it and you'll be handing your family the good dishes!

 
 
Don't know what to do with those left over birthday plates in your children's favorite theme? Practical Scrapper Kerri used 2  (1- 11" square and 1- 8" square) designer paper plates in the Monster High theme leftover from her daughter's birthday party as as background  paper to create her Halloween layout.  She even punched holes and laced the two together. 
 
 
Practical Scrapper Kerri cut up pieces of this Monster High theme designer paper plate to create this pull tag for her daughter's Monster High  backpack. 
 
 
Practical Scrapper Alison made a Christmas door hanger out of 4 desert sized paper plates and a whole lot of scraps. 
 

Practical Scraper Lanette made a snowball ornament out of dessert paper plates and ribbon.

 

Practical Scrapper Sarah  cut out the center of a paper plate and then wrapped it in twine to serve as the base for her fall wreath.
