This platter is ALL PLASTIC and cost me $2.00 to make. All it took was a set of clear plastic plates and a set of cups from the dollar store. (My daughter Jennifer helped with the decor ideas for this one.) Grab some photos, paper and ribbon and you can create a variety of these. I put flowers in mine but you can put anything you want inside the cups! Wouldn’t this bee a wonderful Mother’s Day gift from the kids? Or an inexpensive “Thank You” for someone. It’s also perfect for any holiday just use the appropriate colors, photos and message. Spark up your imagination and go crazy!

Instructions

Be very careful on gluing the cups down or it gets messy looking. You can always put some trim around the base if needed to cover any flaws. Place anything you like inside the center!
