I found this gem at the Goodwill store. It is an old printing plate for certificates. You can see the border around the edge. I thought about putting an saying about "achievement" on this given its original intent.
My little helper last week saw this graphic in my library and instantly knew it was the right fit for this project.
We created as stencil with my Silhouette Cameo 3. The first one didn't adhere to the surface so we gave it a clear coat and tried another stencil. It worked!
Since the outside edge is copper, we decided a metallic would look good on this. It really worked well. We added another clear coat of poly to ensure the paint would not come off.
This is the finished project. I love repurposing things that technology has made obsolete. It wasn't likely this printing plate was going to be printing anything soon. Now it has a new purpose and a new home.
