Easter Cupcake Stand Tutorial

I wanted to embrace Spring and create an Eastery (dictionary.com..lol) This is the perfect center piece for a little Easter afternoon get together!! It is easy inexpensive and fun and when you add prima goodness and yummy cupcakes and thats what I call decadent FUN!!! I will show you how to do it!! 

 Shopping List:

3 Round Styrofoam Forms
Glossy Accents
Ribbon Spools
Boarder Punch
Paper and embelishments of your choice
Measure your styrofoam pieces  

 Cut desired Paper according to Measurements (I used Flights Of Fancy By Prima) 

 Adhere paper to styrofoam pieces ( I adhered black paper on the bottom for a cleaner look)

 Cut contrasting paper into 1 1/2 inch strips 

 and then punch the edge with a boarder punch of your choice and adhere to the sides of each paper covered round styrofoam piece (this will hide the edge)

 Stack your ribbon spools to the desired height and glue together

 Now Paint and adhere spools to the center of each covered round foam circle stacking your round styrofoam pieces in tiers
 Embellish and fill with yummy cupcakes
Layer Layer Layer those embelies, lace and flowers!! 
 You can add flair by creating flags to express fun sentiments using paper stamps and toothpicks!!

    Hey Jade,

    I was visiting your blog today and I have to say I love your style and I think you are very creative. The cupcake stand is really cute. I was wondering how do you become a guest designer for a scrapbook company? How did you get started?
