So you know someone that is having a birthday. They aren't really a BIG gift person.. but you'd like to show your appreciation (I'm thinking co-worker, VT person, teacher, neighbor etc).
Find little glass plates. Find short glass candle sticks or even glass cups or bowls. They can be hiding around your house in the back of a cupboard... china closet... even an old box of glass stuff you never unpacked. You can also do it the easy way like I did, and find them at a garage sale for a quarter.
Mix and Match
set them on top of each other, upside down etc.
Try them out to see what looks best
Ah, that's a nice touch.
Using E6000 glue, run a bead around the 'base' . Glue it to the top. Let it sit for a day.
You then have a pretty showcase for a fun cupcake or muffin or tower of cookies.
again, taking the easy way out, I bought cupcakes. (would have looked better with a large Costco muffin!)
Although this is a nice small glass and the cupcake looks nice.
But I went with the round plate and put 3 cupcakes! and, um YES that cellophane has hearts on it. (it's all I had.. and after it is ripped off, no one will notice! I hope!)
