Epiphany Crafts~one for the team!


Hi everyone~I started this project with one goal in mind~ to make a super cute display piece that would hold my Epiphany Crafts supplies when I demo.  I wanted all of my supplies in front of me and easy access~but cute, that was important.


The supplies I had to work with were six vintage tart pans, a plate {8"}, old spools{2 lrg} and silk ribbon.  As I was working on the design~I thought it would be cool to put a large paper clip in the center of the spool, so I could display my business card~


So this is how I started:
{1} Glue the two thread spools together. I used  Helmar's 450 Quick Dry Adhesive.  When I talk about glue this what I used ~only this glue.
{2} Glue your crocheted flower{needs a hole in the center} to the top of the thread spool.
{3} Wrap your ribbon around the spools{tack with glue}so it doesn't slip and tie a bow~a pretty one!
{4} Put glue on the large paper clip and stick it in the spool hole { on top}
{5}Glue your center piece{spools holding paper clip} to the center of the plate.
{6} I used the back side of my business card and printed out the Epiphany logo and attached to my card~ added one of the EC Star felt flowers~ the center is a EC button round 14.
{7} Glue the tart tins to the plate.
Let all of this dry good and strong.


In the middle of the tied bow, I stuck some homemade stick pins and an EC charm and a EC 14" round bubble cap in the center of the charm.  I used the same paper I lined the tart tins with.


Like I said ~ this one is for the Epiphany Crafts Design Team ~ hope you make one!!!
Have a great monday and I'll see you Tuesday for Try it Tuesday and the winner of some "crafty goodies"  It is not to late~ go here to get scoop on the goodies!!
