I gave these away to my sisters for Christmas.  I originally saw these in woman's day catalog and thought they looked super neat.  You can get really creative with these.  I made  a ton of these for under 10 bucks!  I wouldn't recommend eating off them, but they make neat change plates or knick-knack tray.er
