  • Offray 4” White Decorative Paper Ribbon #17749
  • White Wrapping Paper

  1. Measure and cut one 49” piece, one 33” piece and one 17” piece of the paper ribbon and put them inside the old box.
  2. Take the box and pieces of paper ribbon outside and spray them with the silver foil paint. Allow them to dry.
  3. Measure and mark two 12” squares, two 8” squares and two 4” squares on the sheets of STYROFOAM™ brand foam.
  4. Rub the serrated knife across the candle for ease of cutting and cut out the marked pieces.
  5. Use hot glue to secure each of the matching sizes of squares together to create each individual layer of the cake.
  6. Wrap each of the layers with the white wrapping paper the same way that you would wrap a gift package.
  7. Wrap the 49” piece of silver paper ribbon around the 12” squares. Wrap the 33” piece of silver paper ribbon around the 8” squares and the 17” piece of silver paper ribbon around the 4” squares. Secure the ends with adhesive tape.
  8. Measure and cut two 24” pieces of white crepe paper streamers, two 24” pieces of light blue crepe paper streamers and one 24” piece of bright green crepe paper streamers.
  9. Fold one end of each piece of crepe paper at a right angle to create a 2” stem. Fold the folded edge again to create the center of the rose.
  10. Hold the stem with the rose center in your right hand and use your left hand to fold the top edge of a small section of the long end of the crepe paper rose in half.
  11. Use the fingertips of your left hand to wrap the folded section around the bottom of the center of the rose and hold the bottom edge of the wrapped crepe paper section with the fingertips of your right hand.
  12. Repeat folding and wrapping small sections of the crepe streamer until all of it is wrapped around the rose center. Use a small piece of adhesive tape to secure the end of the wrapped piece to the stem piece.
  13. Press and shape the crepe paper rose to create a balanced round shape and use small pieces of adhesive tape to secure any loose edges to the back of the rose and the stem piece.
  14. Repeat Steps #9 through #13 to finish five roses.
  15. Insert a straight pin into the stem of each rose and insert the pin with the rose into the top of the 4” square for the top of the cake. Use the picture as a guide for placement.
  16. If desired, use hot glue to secure the cake layers together or you can simply place them on top of each other as you prefer.

What a pretty addition to your wedding or shower decorations! Why not put it to work as your customized card collector? Just add a generous sized slit to accept the cards to the top of the bottom box,centered between the edge and the side of the second box. Finish the edges of the slit with either the white wrapping paper or use the brides chosen accent color of paper cut into strips,folded in half and glued or taped in place. You could also decorate the cake further with the accent color as desired
