After my cousin Krystle saw the cake stand I made in my previous post, she wanted to make a mini cake stand for individual cupcakes. She also wanted it disposable but sturdy...so... she got the clear dessert plate (8 ct) and clear "shot glass" cup (24 ct) from the $1 store (all plastic!).
use a LOW-temp glue gun to glue the pieces together. I just put some glue on the bottom of the shot glass cup
then stuck it to the bottom of the plate in the center.
Ta-Da! This time, its ready fast! No waiting for hours the the "real" glass cake stand! =)
Pictures coming soon of how Krystle used these plastic stands for a baby shower! =)

I finally recieved this in the mail!!! I had to share!!! What is it??? Its a camera strap cover from *Shey*[B]!!! I love damask and the color purple! This was a custom order from Shey but she has a BUNCH of stuff on her site you can choose from. She even has ipad covers, guitar strap cover, etc!!!
Please excuse my blurry pictures, I had to take it from my phone as you can see because my camera is right there...hehe! The purple is really pretty, the camera never gives purple any justice! The purple minky feels great on my skin. I also added a lens pocket because I am ALWAYS misplacing the lens cover!!!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this!!! Gets yours now here!

After seeing this Cake Plate Tutorial from Your Homebase Mom, I wanted to make some of my own too! I love how you can use any plate you desire!
For each cake plate you will need:
1 candle holder
1 candle holder
I had this glue on hand so I forgot how much the price is, I got this from Michael's Arts and Crafts.
Now get your holder and plate together, turn the plate upside down and try to determine where the center is.

Who doesn't love playing dress up? Especially with fairy wings! I got this purple bee wing from my local $1 store! Problem is....I didn't like that bee...I wanted it to be more pretty! So I also grabbed 1 bundle of flowers from the $1 store to cover the bee!
before gluing the flowers to the bee with the hot glue gun, I thought I needed two flowers (I took the flower heads off the stem). But instead, I cut the bee off, just leaving the part that was already glued to the wings and I only needed one flower.
I love how it came out! SOOOOOOOO much better than the bee! Talk about refashion! LOL!
My daughter LOVED it...but then again...she has so many wings! hehe...she loves playing dress up with the wings and sometimes she wants her tutu! I bought her these wings because it was inexpensive and I didn't want her to ruin the ones she already had.
I also bought this ladybug wing along with the bee....I might just leave this one alone...what do you think?rLeave it or put black or red flower? =) Get your wings now if your local dollar store carries it!
