Joyeuses Pâques

by Confectionique
(Middleton, WI)

From Confectionique: Bonjour! This lovely found and re-created charger plate has been embellished with many treasures. To start, the bottom of the plate has been lined with a round piece of scrapbook paper (on the front and back side). We love our hot glue gun so that has been the method used for attaching these pieces onto the charger (our "container").

The next layer is a paper rosette made using Martha Stewart's scoreboard and the edges have been dotted with a pearly glitter glue. The outer ring of the plate has been outlined with a gold and silver piece of garland. The next layer adds three more paper rosettes of differing sizes. One rosette has been highlighted again with pearly glitter glue along its edges and the larger olive colored rosette (bottom right) has been dotted with gold glitter glue. This olive paper rosette is layered with a scalloped pink paper punch. This scalloped punch is covered with the same pearly glitter as used on the bottom rosette. A top of the scallop punch is a small flat back wooden bunny. The bunny has been accented with a flat back cabochon that consists of 3 pastel flowers and petite leaves. In between the scalloped punch and olive rosette there are 2 paper gold leaves attached between the layers. The last paper rosette (a turquoise lovely located in the bottom left) is accented with turquoise glitter glue and a hint of pearly glitter glue. A flatback rounded pale blue button accents the middle of the rosette and is covered in fine turquoise glitter.

The tres belle image downloaded from VIC has been highlighted around the edges with silver glitter and glued on top of the rosettes. The scene is accented with 4 silver glittered chipboard pieces (purchased pre-glittered) Finally the entire piece is named "Joyeuses Paques." The words have been printed on a thick paper and trimmed into the shape of a banner flag. The flag has been folded and glued over a wood skewer. A turquoise bead has been glued on top of the skewer and a spring green grosgrain ribbon is tied around the skewer as well. The skewer has been slid in between the layers of the downloaded image and the garland that lines the inner edge of the plate. Finally, a vintage piece of cotton lace has been glued in between the paper on the back of the plate and the plate in order to hang the plate.
