School Supply Cake

If you saw my appearance on fox 9 http://www.myfoxtwincities.com/ this morning, welcome.  I do a little bit of everything on this blog...
If you are a regular visitor, thank-you so much for checking in.  I can't tell you how much I love all my blogging friends.  Teacher Appreciation week starts Monday, May 7th.  If you are looking for more ideas, check out my pinterest board here... http://pinterest.com/jenni_swenson1/teacher-appreciation/
Today, I'm going to share my favorite project from my appearance this morning... the teacher supply cake.  I started with 3 round boxes from Michael's.   I spray painted them with banner red Krylon spray paint.

For the first layer of the cake, I alternated crayons and glue.  I stuck them on with 3d tape and added a ribbon around them to make sure they were on tight!

For the next layer, I alternated glue sticks and chalk.  I put a little hot glue on the supplies and also between the boxes to make sure they were secure.

The top layer has some pencils, and some more glue and crayons.  I added some ric rac and some clothespins to embellish.
