13.) Now at this point if you have a cup or pencil holder you will need it for this next step. I didn't want to have to purchase one so I'll share with you what I used instead. I found spare bolt of fabric in my closet and used the cardboard center roll to make my own pencil holder. Free is always better than spending more money!
19.) Take the pencil holder/glue stick section and secure it to the top of the paper towel roll. (I used hot glue because I was afraid it would not be as secure with tape.)
20.) Roll pieces of tape and place on the top of the cardboard circle. (It's hard to see mine since it was clear.)
21.) Place the supply cake body on the cardboard base.
22.) Starting at the top section, cut a piece of ribbon long enough to go around the pencil holder. This is where the rubber bands come in handy because they help hold the ribbon in place.
23.) Place a dot of hot glue on one end of the ribbon and secure the other end to the glue.
24.) Continue to cover the rubber bands with ribbon, layering ribbon as you like.
25.) Tie bows and glue to each section where there is a ribbon band.
26.) Glue the gerber daises to the bows and add the pencils to the pencil holder.
And there you have it...your very own school supply cake! I'd love to see your creations. You can e-mail them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
