Meanwhile, back at the ranch...
A few months ago, I was asked to decorate the new Kaisercraft Cupcake Stand, to be used as a shop display at Scrapbook Shenanigans in Townsville. I chose to decorate with a red white and green theme, as it was getting close to Christmas, and this is what it looked like.
Don't those cuppies look delicious?
Well anyways, the Christmassy colours got a bit old after a while, so in the search for something a bit more fresh and versatile, we chose some gorgeous paper from the TPC Studio range "Sunny Bunny" - the paper itself is called "Spring Flowers".
I cut out the skirts on my Craft Robo, but if you were to do this yourself, you can easily use a border punch to get a decorative effect. Simple scallops would look fantastic too.
I used a 3/8" wide emerald green Grosgrain ribbon to wrap the bottom of each tier. I tried a few different colours, but the green gave the stand a bit more body, so to speak, and defines each tier more.
You might notice that this time around, I decided to make the "skirts"
go upwards, to almost form a fence around the outside. This is in the
hope that Michele will fill the baskets with loads and loads of
See you tomorrow!
P.S. Apologies that the last photo is a tad on the blurry side. Kinda hard to take photos while a puppy licks your face and jumps all over you!
