Hello Summer Party Favor Stand
I have this project to share today. I know it might look complicated but I promise it is not!

To create this I took a cheap cupcake tree (this link will take you to the exact product I used available on amazon.com) and covered it in paper from the Hello Summer Collection. To make the borders I cut strips from the You've Been Flagged Paper and cut notches into the flags with a pair of sharp scissors. You don't have to be too accurate as the overall effect is what is most important!


To create this birdhouse I used this file from the Silhouette store and then added some of the chipboard and sticker elements to create the clouds and bird details. They are all layered and mounted using dimensional foam.

Here is a list of blogs that were on the hop!
