|Botanical Tea Upcycled Cup Cake Stand - Graphic 45|
Morning, I'm back from my trip to the seaside and beavering away on a couple of new projects behind the scenes, so thought I'd share one of the samples I made for the Graphic 45 show I was on with Dean at Create and Craft TV at the end of April. It was full of muffins on the show that Dean and the floor crew ate once we were off air.
We all love a bit of up cycling and as I've saved a load of porridge pots I thought I'd put a couple of them to good use in this project. They have a handy cardboard label on them, and if you remove it carefully you have the pattern all ready to draw around, cover and turn into stands.
Along with the porridge pots I used up cycled card board boxes for the rounds and used a dinner plate as the template for the bottom one and a side plate for the top. Once all the pieces were cut out it was on with the decorating. I went for pinks and greens as there are so many different papers that compliment themselves in the Botanical Tea Collection. Heres a list of the other bits and pieces I used to pull the project together:
Martha Stewart border pouch - bottom of porridge pots
Envelope Punch Board - Ribbons
EK Success Daisy Border Punch - borders on rounds
Cup Cake Holders - pattern taken from one we'd eaten earlier
Its a really easy project to make and one that would look great on a party table
I'm off to finish some filming so enjoy your day whatever you have planned and look forward to catching up again soon :-) C
