Merry Christmas Charger

A quick tip on how I space the designs on the outer rim of the plate.  Using two clear rulers, I find the center of the plate.  Then, it's just a matter of placing pieces of blue painters tape around the outside edge where I want the images to be placed.  You can step back and take a look to be sure they'll be where you want them.


 
Files used are from the Silhouette store.  I added some self-adhesive red gems to this.  After I got it all assembled, it looked as if it needed a little bling.

I was asked which files were used from Silhouette.  The candy shape is #34362, the swirl is the bow from a jingle bell file # 13733 and the words were created by Barbara Adkins using three free fonts and point editing.  It was shared in a Facebook group on October 2, 2013.

Very cute!! I love the red bling and think it was the perfect addition. I tried to find chargers at Big Lots yesterday and Walmart but no luck. Guess I will have to go to Michaels.
Thanks for the great pics!

I saw a picture of this charger on Pinterest the other day and I love it. I would like the use the ribbon swirls on a project I'm working on and have not been able to locate the file in the Silhouette Store. If you don't mind, could you please tell me the name of the file so I can find it easier. By the way, I love all of your projects!

Thanks, Susan Means, for the nice compliment. I did go back through my files and can't locate the bow or the candy pieces. I did find the words in the center but can't tell you the file number for those since I imported it into Make The Cut software to cut it out. I'll keep looking and if I find the files I'll post them on here for you.
