I have wanted to do this for a long time. Inspired by something I saw on bhg.com (I’d provide the link, but I can’t find it anymore), I have been piecing this project together for over a year.
It’s a little accomplishment, but those are the ones that keep me inspired, growing, and learning . . . and eventually snowball into the big ‘uns.
I bought the cake stand last year for $2. It was on clearance because it has a small chip missing in one corner. I bought the wrapping paper at an after-Christmas-sale for $1 a roll. The striped material was the liner of a dress I no longer wear. I wrapped books and empty boxes, and tied the project up with twine I already had. Ribbon would work just as well.
