Makin' stuff

Things to know about me...

  • I love creating things, (though I try to stay away from the drahhh-mahhh creation, uh hello why I'm so happily s to the ingle!)
  •  Spending time with my glue gun after a rough day always makes me warm and fuzzy (and not just from the burns!)
  • I love Goodwill.  known around these parts as the G-Dub...
  • I have a thing for cake plates, I have at least 5...(now 8)
You have probably seen DIY cake plates on the interwebz?  Where some skinny glass vase or cup type thing is glued to a glass serving dish or plate
Here's my version...

started like this... 
but flipping the base over meant I could put fun stuff inside!

put the glass plate upside down
apply my 'boi-toi'  aka hawt glue to the piece that will be the base

stick the two pieces together and allow to dry!

eat and be merry during dry time

 continue these steps to make more cake plates...

put fun and festive items in bases

this base is deckled and the red bell just makes it look fun and funky--love!

You could totally use them for any holiday--think eggs, flags, ghosts oh I can.not.wait!  Tomorrow i must make a cake...

All three are made for less than $5!
