Dollar Store Craft-Make A Pretty Cupcake Plate

Happy Wednesday to all!!
We're almost to the weekend and I am here today to share a really simple and cheap way to pretty up your cupcake and party presentation!
 Here's what you'll need:

2 dollar store plates
2 dollar store small glass candle sticks
vinyl
Cricut electronic cutter
Storybook Cartridge
 Loctite Superglue (All Glass)



First gather your plate and candlestick and make sure they are clean and dry. Lay your plate bottom side up on a sturdy surface.
You will take your Loctite glue and squeeze some out onto the top of the candlestick.
Turn the candlestick over and carefully center it onto the back of the plate.
Hold for a few minutes to set it onto the plate.
Carefully turn the plate and candlestick over while holding onto both and place a book or other object on plate to further set it in place.
Do the same for your other plate(s).
When your plates are all done, you can continue on to cut your vinyl.
I set my Cricut cutter on blade pressure low,
medium speed.
I cut my owl shape using my Gypsy at 4.25 inches and my
letter P at 4.75 inches.
Measure you plate and see what size you want your shape to be.
If you don't have a Cricut, you can always buy a pre-cut vinyl shape at any craft store
OR
use your favorite stencil and use
glass enamel paint found at the craft store.
After cutting my shape I put it on my plates and voila!
Instant cuteness! 

       
 
 You can even stack two of them together with your loctite and serve cupcakes if you hand paint the edges :)




The possibilities are endless and oh-so-inexpensive
You can also use these cute plates on top of a dresser to set keys and jewelry on.
Put them in the bathroom vanity and set your pretty soaps on them.
And in a guest bedroom with a pretty saying on them.
I hope you enjoyed this very simple and inexpensive tutorial.
