Kate's Birthday Decor, Part 1

Little Miss Kate will turn 2 tomorrow...that is wild and crazy!
So, I am in the middle of making her birthday decor table to hold
the cupcake tree, treats and more.
I am going to show all of the decor in parts because
I do not have everything done yet, I just couldn't
resist to show you this:

Canvas Corp sells cupcake tree "blanks", they come in
Square and Round shapes.
They also sell most of the Canvas corp products that I
used to make this.
 I was surprised on how easy it was to cover the stand, I was making it
harder than it was.  I used the Canvas Corp mini burlap & canvas shapes to make
scalloped edges by cutting them in half.  I love using Fabric-Tac glue
{Beacon Adhesives} to attach everything...even the paper!  I guess you can say
that you should use this glue in a well ventilated area...
I got a little light headed using it.:)
 I used the Accu-cut die-cutting system to cut out the cupcake wrappers, birds,
 butterflies and labels.  I especially like using the corkstock by Canvas Corp.
 I used Cosmo Cricket's Tiny Type stickers to spell out words and her name.
 Here is a "bird's eye view" of the stand, all of the papers are Canvas Corp.
I love the pink zebra papers!

So, keep checking back...I have tons more to share.

  3. I don't know whether to thank you or curse you! I decided to take apart my cupcake tree and cover the whole things, too. Previously I have only added ribbon to the tiers but I must admit that it looks so much better all covered in paper. I really love all the papers you picked!
