need some more blog-spiration?

and another use for our bottlecaps? i had send some to Andrea who had won them in a RAK and she told me the first thing she thought of with the bottlecaps was a pie tin - how creative is that?

so andrea sent me this picture this week of the mini pie she created - is this awesome or what?

when i first saw this, i thought she might have made the pie crust out of clay but NO! andrea was creative enough to use the Maya Road cream rick rack to do the lattice. i would not have thought to do that in a million years (i would be using a very tiny rolling pin rolling away some clay lattice - LOL).

and andrea was kind enough to share how to make this:

Maya Road cream velvet rick rack and bottlecap
red beads
glue dots
3D Crystal Laquer
Aleene's Quick Dry tacky glue

how to:
1. To form crust attach your glue dots on the edge of the bottlecap and press on the rick rack.
2. Fill the bottlecap with red beads and cover with Crysal Laquer. Let set for about 1/2 an hour.
3. Put a thin layer of the tacky glue over top of the crystal laquer. Lay down the rick rack to form the strips on the top of your pie. Gently press into place.
4. Once dry you can pin on your little message!

(you can also tack on a magnet to make this lovely pie for your fridge!)

thanks to andrea for this awesome idea!
