Christmas Cake Stand for Craftycutting

Hi everyone, I'm back again with another lovely project for Craftycutting. This time I have altered one of the new cake stands. The stand is made from mdf which has been laser cut. It slots together and once decorated can be taken apart and stored flat. I am definitely going to need one of these for Birthdays and Easter too. I may even decorate one for Halloween. The possibilities are endless.

I covered the bare mdf stand with Christmas themed patterned paper and slotted the stand together.

I then covered the two "tiers" with paper, cut out some additional images and layered them on, before finally finishing with a couple of coats of a matt varnish to protect the papers and allow for wiping clean.
The edges were finished with a punched border and some sparkly ribbon.
If you would like to see the finished project please come along to the Craftycutting stand at the Knit and Stitch Show in the RDS Dublin from the 31st October to the 2nd November.
