    Burlap Plates:
    Note that these plates are not waterproof and should be used for foods such as cookies, crackers or cheese.
    Cut a fall leaf shape from cardstock. Apply a thin coat of Mod Podge to the top of a paper leaf. Working on the backside of the plate, position the leaf in the center of plate. Press with your fingers to remove any air bubbles and allow to dry.
    Trim the burlap so it is just larger than the plate. Coat the entire backside of the plate with fabric Mod Podge. Use a thick coat. Position the burlap on the back of the plate. Smooth with your fingers. Place the wet side up and allow to dry over night. Once dry, trim around the edge to get a smooth edge.
