lookin' like a party...

Always in the mood for a piece of cake, today's project really hit the spot for me!
No, I didn't actually get to eat any, but... this was almost as good.
Target had the cutest little cupcake stands in their Dollar Spot so I picked up a couple. It was just the right size to stack a pair of paper mache boxes on top to make a 'cake'...

I covered the boxes with patterned paper and glued the small box on top of the larger one. They both still open up so if you wanted to slip a tiny something inside you could.
The fabulous bunting circling the cake layers is made up of something you might not have expected- I used the Shortie Tabs die set from Tammy Tutterow! Cut from lots of bright colors and gently inked with Distress Ink they were the perfect size for the larger bottom layer; I snipped off about 1/4" to make them fit the shorter top layer.
I slipped a die cut doily underneath the stack and a gold button on top. Of course, no project feels complete without some sparkly chenille stem and this gold/silver twist was perfect... 

That's all it took to make a dull stack of paper mache look like a party!

Oh my goodness, Terri, this is amazing. I love how you used the shortie tabs to decorate the cake and what a wonderful way to use up bits and pieces of leftover card stock. I'm always looking for ideas for that instead of pitching it in the garbage can. Magnificent project, I love it!!
