I started by using some E6000 adhesive to adhere the small wooden disk to the wooden base.
When that was dry I used a drill to drill a hole for the dowel rod.
I cut chipboard to the size I wanted and used the edge die to make the tabs.
I cut some inserts from the TH Crowded Attic Paper Stash to size.
Close the o-wire and slip it over the dowel and add the topper. I painted my stand out in black.
Now I just need photos and embellishments. Thanks for looking!
