This is really neat!  Would you mind sharing how you mended the cup and the plate together?  Like what kind of glue or adhesive did you use to get it to stay together?

It would also look adorable with a selection of mini cupcake and tarts.   Smiley

As a avid tea drinker I can tell you its called a tidbit tray, looks great, did you use the threadbanger tute? When I made my own I can tell you I got some funny looks when I marched straight to the china section of the thrift store and started stacking things...Wink

thanks all!

to answer a few questions -
i used super glue gel because of the small size. if i used bigger plates, i'd definitely use e6000 (600?) can't remember which... basically it's clear cement.

i'd seen these before, but didn't know what to call them (thanks!) so i didn't actually know there was a tut. just did it on my own. and i got some weird looks stacking china too!

I love that you put knitting notions on it. Makes me want to try to make a cake stand using similar sorts of things.
