This cement tutorial shows you how to make a loose change plate or bowl using cement and disposable party plates. These are so quick to make they would be perfect as party or wedding favors.
What you need
Disposable Party Bowls
Start by mixing your cement following the instructions on the packet.
Select bowls or plates that are shallow as you don’t want your bowls to be too heavy.
The bottom of your bowl will become the top as the plastic gives it a smooth surface.
Tap the bowl gently to remove any air bubbles that may be sitting on the bottom. Once you have poured the concrete let it set.
You can smooth down any rough edges with fine sandpaper.
What you need
Dainty or retro tea cups with saucers.
Sweets to fill your tea cup.
1 inch Ribbon that co-ordinates with your cups and wedding theme.
This project is an ideal wedding favour. It is easy to make and is something functional and original.
You will need to find a source for inexpensive tea cups and saucers. You could try china second shops or even seek antique looking settings from thrift stores.
Choose some Candy – Chocolate coated Coffee beans would be perfect, but sweets like sugared almonds would also look nice.
Wrap these sweets up in some cellophane and place inside the cup.
Take your ribbon and secure the saucer and the cup with a big loose bow.
Candy can be bought in bulk from wholesalers, check to see if they will sell bulk to you to save on your expenses.
