As promised, here is my fabulous and ambitious project for today. This cupcake tower with cake stand included and ALL made of paper!! I used the cupcake box from Kelleigh Ratzlaff's Designs and the boxes and stand are from the silhouette store. I increased the size of the cupcake stand to fit the bottom box and added some beautiful rhinestones around my boxes for some additional WOW. the paper I used on the cupcake is from Echo Park (my favorite line!) and the pom pom on top was made using Trendy Twine.



Let me show you more of the details I put on my cake tower. Sooo cute!
