Cheap, homemade, yet classy, wedding gift...

I've already showed you how to paint plates here. Yes, I am the queen of the homemade baby plate... but I am also the queen of the homemade wedding plate! Monogramming is the rage currently, and I haven't had a chance to try my hand at it in awhile. (Yes, I know, this is a stinky picture. I had trouble getting the plate to stand still.)

It seems like the weddings that I used to attend are giving way to baby showers... and there was awhile there that I wasn't interested in doing anything but trying to keep up with Seth and shower, so... I am now back in the saddle.

There are tons of great monogramming stencils available, but not at your local Michaels. Their selection is pathetic. Try A.C. Moore. That's where I got the alphabet ($5) that this came from. They also had a kit that had one set of capitals and a slightly smaller set, if you want to do a three initial monogram.

I got the plate at Walmart for $3. Don't worry all ye who fear my stinginess... this isn't the only thing the bride is getting from us. I'm tucking a gift card in there, too.
