Crafts in a SNAP: Easy Vinyl Plaque

 While I'm off at SNAP Conference in Salt Lake City surrounded by 500 other talented crafty bloggers learning, creating, and celebrating the friendships we've made because of blogging,
 I teamed up with Abbey from The Cards We Drew and a large group of bloggers to create Crafts in a SNAP {15 Minute Craft Ideas} so that ANYONE, whether beginner or seasoned pro, can learn to create fun and handmade items in no time at all!

Today I'm showing you how easy it is to customize a ready-made plaque.

You can buy these at any craft store in a variety of shapes and sizes.  This one happens to be the perfect size for a gift I'm giving.

The beauty of these is that they are already painted and  prepped for you to make into your own masterpiece.  If you can find one in a color and style you like, half the work is done for you!
I measured my plaque and made a rectangle shape in Silhouette Studio to match those dimensions.  Then I simply created a design using my fonts.

Cut and weed your vinyl as usual, then transfer it to your plaque with contact paper or transfer tape.
You can also use the vinyl as a stencil if you'd prefer a hand-painted look.

This literally took me about 10 minutes, and that is only because I had to fit the font to my plaque dimensions.  This is an easy custom gift to give to a teacher, family member, or friend.

It really is just that easy to customize a blank plaque!
