Exploring Cricut - Graduation Cupcake Stand

Hello! It is my turn to share at Exploring Cricut and I am so excited to do so. My house has been a whirlwind over the last week with graduations and winding down the school year. We have a busy weekend coming up with dance performances. It is all so exciting  but I will be so ready to take a breather.  I'm sure you all are feeling the crunch too with the season. 

I have a fun project and oh so simple for those last minute ideas in decorating for graduation parties. I created this cupcake stand and wanted to share with you. I used my Cricut for the graduation cap and lettering. I adhered the cap, with a hot glue gun, to a popsicle stick that I painted white. It slipped nicely in between the notch at the top and I didn't even have to glue it in place.   

This cake stand holds approximately 48 cupcakes and is made out of styrofoam. I added the polka dot ribbon and the tulle at the bottom using a glue gun to adhere. 

You may remember that I had made candy tags for the table and I thought I would show you what the finished buffet looked like.

It was a great party and people really enjoyed the fun candy and cupcakes! Remember you have until Saturday to enter our challenge at Exploring Cricut!
