DIY Paper Cake Place Cards
- Empty toilet paper roll(s)
- Pink scrapbook paper, or pink paint
- White card stock
- Pink pom poms (optional)
- Pink puffy paint (optional)
- FREE printable cake stand template
- Markers or colored pencils
- Birthday candles
- Hot glue + hot glue gun
- Cut the empty toilet paper roll in half. Set it aside. Estimate how wide of a piece of pink scrapbook paper you’ll need by measuring how “tall” the toilet paper roll half is, then cut off a strip of paper to cover the toilet paper roll.
- Trace the toilet paper roll on the scrapbook paper to make the top of the cake. Cut it out.
- Using either markers or colored pencils, hand letter the name of the guests on the cake tops.
- Using either tape or hot glue (I used hot glue), affix the top of the cake on the toilet paper roll. Next, wrap the strip of scrapbook paper around the toilet paper roll, again using either tape or hot glue (I used hot glue). If you use hot glue, let it cool.
- Print off your free cake stand template, cut it out, then use it as a template to trace onto your white card stock. Assemble the cake stand by putting together the base first, then use hot glue to affix it to the bottom of the “plate” (the circle). If needed, apply hot glue anywhere desired to make the stand more sturdy. (For example, I put lines of hot glue on either side of where the two base pieces come together.) Let the glue cool.
- Now hot glue the cake to the cake stand. Let it cool.
- Optional: Next, in small segments, apply hot glue around the base of the cake – where the cake meets the cake stand – and start putting on the pink pom poms, AKA “frosting.”
- Optional: Using the puffy paint, apply a thick line of “frosting” to cover up the crack where the top of the cake was glued down on the toilet paper roll.
- Finally, use hot glue to stick your candle on top of the cake. If desired, trim down the candle beforehand to a height you like.
