|This past week Georgia Anne and I made a school supply cake for her new 3rd grade teacher. This is a super easy and fun craft and people go nuts when they see it. We gave it to her teacher today at Open House and I think every single child we passed said something about it. If you'd like to make one yourself, I have a full tutorial here. |
I modified this one a little from the one in the tutorial. I used Clorox Wipes "inside" the cake instead of paper towels. I also used the space from the top of the wipes to the top of the notebooks to hold 3 packs of washable markers. I tucked the two rulers in the notebooks and added a little "ABC" bunting to them with twine. One last thing I changed was I used a wooden plate (from the unfinished wood section of the craft store) instead of a cardboard base. This thing gets pretty heavy when you add everything so I thought the plate was a little more substantial.
