Welcome to my NEW BLOG!

Welcome to my NEW blog! For many years my projects could be found at my previous blog - www.fatcatcreations.blogspot.com. Since my business has evolved and is now known as Cindi McGee - Behind These Eyes™ instead of Cindi Bisson - Fat Cat Creations - I thought this was the perfect time to launch a new blog. Since I've been on this creative journey for almost 16 years - I have a LOT of project links out there in cyberworld! If you are looking for a particular project you have found on Pinterest, Facebook, FaveCrafts, HomeTalk, Twitter, etc. and the link is not working for you, please feel free to email me at cdjb11@yahoo.com and I'll be sure to get you the new link to the instructions. Have a creative day and remember to DARE TO BE DIFFERENT!

Smoothfoam™ - 10” Disc, 6” disc, 3” cube 
AdTech™ hot glue gun & glue sticks for foam

Instructions: 

Step 1:  Paint Smoothfoam™ discs and cube with texture spray paint.  Let dry. 

Step 2:  Follow manufacturer instructions to use Spellbinders® Artisan Explorer and Graveyard die set to cut 6 of the graveyard strips and desired number of headstones and skull and crossbones from dark grey card stock. 

Step 3:  Lightly ink die cut pieces with black ink to shade embossed areas. 

Step 4:  Use hot glue to mount cube to 6” disc base and 10” disc top.  Add ribbon around outer edge using straight pins at each end  so ribbon is removable.  This allows for versatility with your faux stone cake stand - change the ribbon and change the theme easily. 

Step 5:  Hot glue graveyard strips onto ribbon around rim of top of stand. 

Step 6:  Trace 8” circle onto red Rowlux® Illusion Film and cut out. 

Step 7:  Hot glue toothpicks to back of each gravestone and skull and crossbones.   Insert into the tops of frosted cupcakes. 

Step 8:  Place Rowlux® circle onto top of stand - do not glue in place - this way it can be removed for washing or changing for other occasions.   Add your cupcakes to your stand.
