Mini-Cupcake Tower

Decided to make a cupcake tower to display my mini-cupcakes
for a candle party I had.
After I located my xacto knife this project was pretty simple.

Materials & Tools

1. Foam board
2. Scrapbook paper
3. Styrofoam
4. Hot Glue Gun
4. Xacto Knife
5. Cricut Cartridge - Plantin Schoolbook
6. ATG Gun
The sizes of the levels are 12", 10" and 8".
I cut the scrapbook paper out first using my cricut, then
I laid them on the foam board to outline where I needed to cut.

To make the colums, I cut the styrofoam out to my desired
height and then hot glued the paper around.
Then I attempted to measure out the center and hot glue
the columns down.

Since I only used this for mini-cupcakes I only did one layer for
each level. But, if you're going to make one for something heavier,
I would recommend doubling the layer of foam board.
To cover the foam edges I would just hot glue some ribbon on.
