Scrumptious Embellishments

I was looking through a Coles catalogue a couple of days ago and found a cupcake holder for $15! It's plastic with decorative metal feet and metal pole running through the middle. The great thing about it is I didn't see it holding cupcakes - I saw it holding embellies! It's perfect because it's clear, so you can easily see things around the back, and each spot that holds a cupcake is enclosed unlike the metal varieties. So I filled it up:

How yummy is that?! It's so pretty sitting on my scrap table. And the best part is I can now see what I have - because we all know that outa sight is outa mind! I'd actually forgotten about half of these embellies because they normally reside in my little drawers that sit on my table.

This embellishment tree would be great at crops - you could sit it in the middle of the table and let everyone chose what they want. I also thought that you could still use patty papers in it if you wanted, this would make removal of the desired embellie a little easier if you wanted the whole amount - or at a crop, you could take it back to your seat while using it. Patty papers would also make it easier to return embellies back to their containers if you are like me and rotate things to remind you what you have - kind of like showcasing new products.

Or you could just do some baking and fill it with cupcakes - either way it's going to make you happy!
