This looks really pretty! At first I ought it was an embellished charger plate! I suppose you could use a charger plate as well, but on the right side and use a clear decopage coating, but you could only use it for decor. With this project, putting the embellishment on the underside of the glass allows you to use the plate for food, although you would need to take care when washing.... This is a very pretty and creative project!
