Quick.  Go rummage through the drawer where you keep your pens.  You know the one with the spare change and twist ties floating all around.  I bet you have a Sharpie® in there somewhere.  I have three:  two black and one red (that I think my husband accidentally brought home from work).  I use Sharpies all the time, for everything from marking cardboard boxes to craft projects.

Just last week I shared my DIY Quote Plates project where I used Sharpies to add fun quotes to dollar store plates.  I used Sharpies 80s Glam multi-pack for those plates, but Sharpie has plenty of varieties of multi-packs.  Their convenient 12-count packages mean there’s no need to pick just one color for your next project.

This Friday, I will be sharing a delicious holiday cookie recipe.  Here’s a sneak peak.

 
Metallic Sharpie Decorated Plate
Notice the fun, red, gold, and silver plate?  That’s another dollar store plate that I embellished with gold and silver permanent markers.
 
Instead of shelling out $10 for a special holiday plate at a home decor store, I created my own by adding a chevron-esque pattern.  All I had to do was mark off stripes on the plate with painter’s tape and add in some deliberately imperfect gold diagonals.  I removed the tape an added silver lines going diagonally the other way.  After heat setting the plate, I had a photo ready cookie platter.
