Mini Cupcake Stand Tutorial!

Here is what you have been waiting for! Thank you so much for the response in Facebook! I made the tutorial using patterns from the Sweet Berrylicious Collection, thank you to one of my biggest fans Michelle for suggesting it!

I am so in love with this little cuties. The method of doing this little cupcake stands was developed by me, I haven't seen this tutorial on the web... and I have researched a lot! I am a scientist, so I actually used the scientific method (yeah how dorky is that!) to achieve less cutting and more sturdiness. You can place this tutorial on your blog, but please link back to here and give the proper credits. If you use this method to do your own Mini Cupcake Stands, please also give the proper credit and link back... thank you so much! If you don't want to do this by your own, you can buy beautiful pre-made white mini cupcake stands from Hello Hanna. But enough of the fine print, here is the tutorial:

1. Print on bright white heavy paper.
 2. Cut a rectangle around the base of the stand using a rotary cutter.
3. Use a scoring tool to score along the white lines.
 4. Fold the base in a zig-zag way, like you were folding a fan.
 5. Form the shape of the base with the pattern on the outside. Make sure they align.
 6. Start gluing sides one by one, satrting with the second fold. (Leave the two outer parts for the end.) Make sure to put glue all the way to the edges and that all the parts are aligned.
 7. Cut the top part while you let the glue dry. Carefully cut away the white semi ovals of the base.
 8. Place a heavy glue on the edges on top of the base. Place the top part on a flat surface upside down. Glue the base to the top align the legs of the base with the petals.
 9. Now you have sturdy, neat and cute mini cupcake stands to match your Sweet Berrylicious Party!

  28. There exists no factor for 1 be disappointed, especially in case you are willing to get done just a small preparation before you contact the professional. You are going to begin your involvement in your process as soon as you could. Because of this you can actually get exactly ideal. One for this first decisions you'll have to make is whether typically are not you like to go within your erotic gay sizegenetics therapist or even if you require them to come to your demands. A real sizegenetics should be an experience that could be tailored for the desires.
