How to Make a School Supply “Cake”:

Supplies Needed:
3 Tiered Paper Mache Boxes
Craft Paint
Large Rubber Bands
Decorative Tape or Ribbon
Mounting Tape

  • Paint the boxes if desired and let dry.
  • Place two rubber bands around the middle of the largest bottom box and then place desired school supplies around the edges – under the rubber bands.
  • Stack and attach the middle box using heavy duty mounting tape, and repeat the steps of using rubber bands to hold school supplies.
  • Do the same with the top box. Note: I decided to not use the lid for the top tier so it can hold the wipes and hand sanitizer inside instead.
  • Lastly, cover rubber bands with decorative tape or ribbon.

To make this project you’ll need:

Start with one corner and attach pencils with hot glue to the vase, making sure they are straight up and down. I also made sure the writing on the pencil was facing the same direction but that’s totally up to you. It’s easier to put a line of glue on the vase and press down a pencil to attach. Go all the way around the vase until covered. Tie ribbon around the middle and add flowers.

To use, just print and attach gift card to the front of the card. If you like, you can even go a step further and attach the printed holder to a slightly larger decorative piece of scrapbooking or construction paper. As you can see, I’ve also embellished further with some twine around a couple of my gift cards.
