Here’s what you’ll need:

Tip #1 – When selecting a plate and martini glass for this project, make sure they each have a flat bottom. This will make it easier to adhere them together.

Here’s how you put it together:

  1. First, thoroughly clean the glass plate and martini glass. Trace the bottom of the glass onto an Advanced Strength Double-Sided Sheet. Draw a second line inside of that to create a ring. If your glass is wider, piece together the adhesive sheets.
  2. Peel off the liner from one side of the adhesive and press it firmly around the edge of the bottom of the glass.Glue Dots Cupcake Display - Step 2
  3. Peel off the second liner from the adhesive and firmly press the glass to the underside of the plate. Be sure to keep everything centered nicely.
  4. Optional - Decorate the stem of the martini glass using a Glue Dots Repositionable Dispenser. You can also use Repositionable Double-Sided Sheets, but I found the dispenser easier to work with for decorating.

  5. Use the Repositionable Dispenser to adhere a paper doily to the plate. This will keep it from sliding around and can be easily changed without leaving behind a residue on the glass.DIY Cupcake Display - Finished

Tip #2 – Use a damp cloth to wipe this cupcake display after each use.
