MCT 3-D Wednesday!


It's 3-D Wednesday with My Creative Time, and I've got a cake stand to share with you today that is completely made out of paper!  I used the adorable Lori Whitlock file from the Silhouette Store and then cut it at its original size.  Lori has a great video showing how to put this together.  I also cut a beautiful Lori Whitlock doily in red to adhere to the top.  Since the top of the cake stand is 8" in diameter, I cut the doily at 7".  I also added some pretty 3/4" Pleated Glitter Trim from Liz's Paper Loft Boutique with my glue gun, to give it some extra sparkle.


For my banner, I used the My Creative Time Build a Banner Kit and Anyday Bingo & Crossword for the lettered elements.  I never get tired of these dies!!!


I also used the Stitched Heart Layering Dies to make my red hearts and the heart from 100% Sweetness to make the white ones, which I also embossed with the Cuttlebug Polka Dots embossing folder.  I sewed the whole banner together with my sewing machine, and then used my glue gun to adhere some of the elements to the trim.


I didn't want these yummy cookies messing up my cake stand, so I put them in white cupcake wrappers.  Since that didn't look too exciting, I stamped the wrappers with the Love Collage Background Stamp.  Perfect!

OMG, this is awesome, Katie. The table is adorable and the way you decorated it is perfect. I knew the cookie wrappers looked familiar, very clever use of Emma's stamps. This would be an adorable presentation at a baby shower or a bridal shower. Now I'm off to download that table. :)
