What to do with those baby pictures

Remember these?


Well I said I had a project for them, and oh do I! Let's go through it step by step. First up, get your photos. These can be pictures of anything, but personally chunky oh so adorable baby pictures were exactly what I wanted. I printed mine in 5x7. But I'm using a smaller scale project. You could always print them at 8x10. Don't go smaller than 5x7 though, because well. I said so, that's why. :)


Now, go get your white plates. I personally used salad plates. Or, at my work we refer to as liners. Again, use a bigger plate if that's what you want. This is very easy to change up, but bigger plate means bigger picture, don't forget that part! :)







Now, grab some scrap paper, a pencil and some shkizzers. I mean, scissors. Sorry, I get used to talking to a 2 & 4 year old. Trace the inside of the plate out, then cut the circle out. It's kind of important that you use your open house fliers. Something about the traceableness. Hey, it's a rule, I didn't make it up.






The next part you can be pretty flexible about. Take some glue, double sided tape, Mod Podge or sticky dots. I personally used sticky dots because, well I couldn't find anything else.







I used the golden number 3, it felt right.



Then take your circle stencil and use it to cut around your picture. I didn't take a photo of this one. I was working fast. I think you get the idea though, right? :)


So push all the crap on the counter away so you can take a good picture.





Then, boom! Stick that baby (har har) on! And ravish in the adorableness of the baby and the chicness of the white plates on the counter/carpet walls. Love every bit of this.



LOVE.IT.


Now where should I hang these?
