My latest challenge from The Paper Variety was to make something involving a cupcake. Oh how perfect since I’ve spent the last two weeks in cupcake land. Well I couldn’t just submit the cupcakes that I already made. That wouldn’t be in the spirit of a crafty challenge. I had to figure out how to incorporate those cupcakes. I decided to make a cake plate out of paper to display my cupcakes in my scrap room. I’ve been decorating my scrap room in a “Creative Cafe” theme and these little delights will be displayed to spruce up my space. What better way to present paper cupcakes, than with a paper cake plate? So here it is…
I used my Gypsy & Cricut to design and cut the stand. If you really want all the complicated details read more below. The stand was a little off from what I had envisioned. If I feel up to it, I will enlarge the circle plate at the top to make it more in proportion to the size of the stand. Other than that, it was a fun project and a neat way to decorate my space.
I took the letter L from a font (can’t remember which one). I flipped it horizontally and welded the L and the upside down L together. Then I flipped this vertically and welded then together again for form half of the stand. I cut two stands–each was 4 layers of heavy cardstock glued together that all fit on one sheet of cardstock. I sliced a slit in each stand about half way down and then slid them together. I don’t know if any of that made sense. I really should have taken photos for a better description.
