Tiered "cake" for Xyron...a tutorial


Tiered-cake-for-Xyron

So this is "Not Xyron but should be" week. :) The Design Team got to pick projects from Pinterest to "recreate" using Xyron. Can you tell what I made?



Here's my niece Sophie posing with it....*winks* [Yeah...it's totally missing a cake stand!]


I went with this lovely project from Kimberly Taylor.



I started by stamping on white wrapping tissue.


Then I ran the stamped tissue through the Xyron 9" Creative Station for an even layer of adhesive.


I tore the wrapping tissue and adhered to the box. Overlapping the tissue creates texture.


I ran some lace through the Xyron 3" Sticker maker, then adhered to the edges of the lids of the boxes.


Then I coloured some white floral trim with a Copic marker and adhered to the lids of the boxes.



The last step is to embellish with pearls and blooms.

So, what do you think?

Oh wow what a stunner Yvonne. I love your 3 D cake. My blog friend Beckie sent me a small Xyron..I love it so much I hesitate to use it as getting the refills is difficult in India.
Love your Xyron inspiration..wish the company would expand to India

Wow! I think it's fabulous! So, so pretty and girly girl, and WAY better than a real cake cause this will last forever! I love your idea of stamping tissue paper for the sides. Never, ever thought about running tissue and trim through a Xyron, so thank you for your amazing tips. Totally love how you colored the flowers with the Copic, too. Gives such a fun, soft look to all those gorgeous blooms!
