Feature Friday: Micki's Valentine tier

I finally got a day off work after working 6 twelve hour shifts in a row, so I needed to do something fun. My friend Rozanna came over to help me make cupcake tiers. Well in the middle of it we ran out of epoxy. When we stoppted at Wally's to get some more she found these:

They are the melamine plates and plastic cups (total per tier it cost us about $5). So we stuck them together.

And voila teacher gifts!!!

Unfortunately hot glue doesn't work well to stick them together I found out. Mine met and early demise when I was trying to put it together while we were out running errands. The top 2 fell off. So my dh stopped and got me super glue and it didn't dry. I am not sure what I did wrong. So I don't have a picture of the finished product. I ended up just wrapping up the small teddy bear and the candy in the cello wrap and just giving them to the teacher. R*I*P!

So fun and funky! I love the colors and the tiers. Did you try Gorilla Glue or E6000? They take a while to set up but might work.

Thanks so much for linking up to my party!!!
