Kitchen Challenge ~ Crafty Secrets

It's Crafty Secrets Challenge time again! This challenge is all about the kitchen and cooking. Crafty Secrets just released some new Cuts, Kitchen Time Cuts, the images are so cute and fun!
I decided to make a little kitchen hanger from an old cupcake tin.

I thought it would be cute hanging in the kitchen for grocery lists, menu's, coupons etc. I put a pink clip at the top and I made 3 magnets from bottle caps to hold my stuff.

I got this old cupcake tin at a yard sale, it was in pretty bad shape so I cleaned it up and spray painted it white. I figured out which images I wanted to use from the Kitchen Time Cuts and punched them out with my SU! scalloped circle punch. I adhered them inside the cups with some cut corks and E6000. I cut the corks and glued them in the center of my images and then I glued them inside the cups. I did this to keep them in place, the images were too big to fit on the bottom of the cups, does that make sense? In other words they are popped up with a cork.

I punched some circles from my Earthy Paper Pad and glued them inside the cups. These were smaller, so they fit on the bottom of the cups. I got some of those little cookie cutters you get at Walmart in the cake decorating section. They usually have some up for each holiday. These were from an Easter package. I put some glue on the edges and put them inside 3 of the cups. I took 3 bottle caps and glued more circles inside those from my Earthy paper and glued glittered letters inside the caps, they spell eat. I made 3 magnets using more bottle caps, punched paper and small images from the cuts.
I adhered the red rick rack around the tin with my ATG gun. I attached some copper wire to the back with E6000 for the hanger and tied a bow on the wire.
The menu sheet is a page from the Homemade Images & Journal Notes.

I love this idea!!! I had a tag party on Sunday....I precut and punched all sorts of little bits and pieces and used cupcake tins (lots of them) to put all the pieces in......but this is a very unique gift idea, too!
