A Birthday and A How To

I love making gifts for my family and friends! I believe it is more personal to give a gift that is hand made :)  For one of my friends, who just celebrated her birthday, I made her a mini cake plate or what I liked to call a cup cake plate. She has been collecting cake plates lately and I looked and looked for them in all the antique stores I visited while on vacation. But none to be found.
However, I did find this really beautiful flower plate and thought I just need to find a base to match and I can put this cake plate together myself!! I found a sorbet cup and turned it upside down to make the base. This was such a fun and easy craft to do. The outcome turned out wonderfully and my friend loved it. :)
So give it a try and tell me or send me pictures of what you all come up with! I will post them :) It really is fun and like I said the outcome is wonderful! You will love this easy peasy craft project!
What you will need:
A vintage or new plate (any size just make sure your base can handle it)
A base (  different sized cups, candle holders, etc....)
E6000 glue ( let it set for at least 12 to 24 hours) make sure it sits on a flat surface so that the pieces don't slide.
That is it!! Have fun :) You could also get more creative and make multi layered plates that hold candy or flowers! Let your creative juices flow :)
