A simple and cute Pedestal


I hot glue this "Crafty Fringe," to the sides of the cake plate

Step 1 Put cake board on top of the decorative paper that you are going to use (flip it over, so you don't put pencil marks on the decorative side) trace and cut.

(Step 2) Put double sided tape on the back side of the polka dotted paper Then flip it over and stick it on top of the cake plate.

(Step 3) The cake plate measures 10 inches. Hot glue the terra cotta pot 3 inches from the outside of the cake plate.

(Step 4) The terra cotta pot meaures 4 inches. Subtract 4 from 10 and you get 6, divide that by 2 and that is where I came up with 3 inches from the outside of the cake plate

Cupcake Box and Card all in ONE!
You have to untie the bow to get the card to open up.

Step 1 Cut 1- (8 in. by 4 in) striped piece of card stock, cut 1 (3 1/2 in. x 3 1/2 in. piece of pink cardstock, then another decoration (your choice), I picked a piece of paper decorated with a flower.

Step 2 You will need ribbon and double sided puffing tape. You can't really see it but I put the puffy tape on the paper decorated with the flower (it is upside down).

Step 3 I used a good sticky tape and taped the ribbon to the box

Step 4 Fold the 8 inch striped paper in half, then put the pink cardstock on top of it (layered). Then put the flower paper (the one with the double-sided puffy tape) on top of the pink cardstock. (layered) Put the creased side of the striped paper at the opening of the cupcake box. You can actually put it on top or bottom (I like both ways).

I will post a better picture later. Now tie the bow and the card will stay closed.


  1. The cupcake box card is lovely :)
    Great idea.
    Congratulations on the blog.
