DIY: You Are Special Today Plate with 3 FREE Designs  |  PBK Building Blocks

By Gabrielle.

Did you know Pottery Barn Kids launched a blog this summer? And it’s so good! It’s called Building Blocks and it’s filled with ideas and inspiration from Pottery Barn Kids Editors, plus lots of original content from guests and contributors — content that you haven’t seen anywhere else (like this neato pop up desk!). If you’re a fan of the PBK aesthetic, you’ll love Building Blocks.

The PBK editors asked me to contribute a few posts and I enthusiastically said yes! Remember the You Are Special Today plates I mentioned in this video? Well, go here to find a full tutorial on how to make your very own. Including 3 (FREE!) designs you can download and use. You can print them as big as you like depending on the size of your plate. Awesome!

A special plate like this is such a fun tradition. It’s perfect for birthdays, but you can also use it to mark any big or small accomplishments — like graduation, or piano recital day, or I-got-an-A-on-a-hard-test day. This tradition was a big deal in my house growing up. We loved it!

P.S. — This project was a collaboration with Melissa of I Still Love You, and Jane of See Jane Blog. They are so talented!

Love this!! We’re not that crafty around here but I’m pretty confident we can pull this one off. And I know my boys are going to love eating off “you are special today” plates on special occasions.

We used to have “The Red Plate” it was one full set of white dishes rimmed with red circles and whomever did something special that day, an award, a good grade, a win on a team, etc – they got the red plate. It was really a neat tradition.

this might be a bit marxist of me, but i think blogs like this kind of distance the blogger from their own content… so they’ll never compete with the contributors’ own blogs. i’ll always just prefer to read designmom.

A lovely gift idea – and so easy. Have you made any other designs?
