What a fabulous idea! These are really cute, I'm sure that they make great gifts and I bet they would sell well at crafts fairs and such. They would be a cute fundraiser for your child's school too.

E6000 glue works very well, but I'm sure any glue made for porcelain or ceramics would work. Adorable baby bunny thriftmeg!

STACK TWO OR THREE SETS OF TEACUPS AND SAUCERS FOR A TEA PARTY; PLACE SMALL MUFFINS, ETC. ON THEM; IT MAKES A PRETTY, UNUSUAL PRESENTATION.
