    My homemade cupcake plate

    Saw this on pintrest and liked it so I made one for the baby shower being planned for my DIL. Since I already had the plates it was pretty inexpensive to do. I painted the underside of the plates and then painted the bud vase. Could not find the candle holders I wanted to use so this will work. The cardboard one I purchased was $7.00 and this cost me less than that overall.....

    WOW! your are creative and ingenuitive. (spelling?) I just love looking around for things that can be used in different ways. People at the hardware stores look at me like I'm nuts. Great job.

    I would use a ceramic glue...I think it is also used for some jewelry...E-2000??? not positive about the number, it could be 5000. Can't find the tube.
