What would be the best way to cover a 3/8" foam board with paper, then attach ribbon all around the edges? Should I secure the paper to the top with glue fits? Double fixed tape? Thanks!
is this for a cupcake dress/display?
Its for a cupcake baby buggy display. 48 cupcakes total.
I just covered a round drum. I normally trace my paper to be 1-2" larger all around - than my board or drum.
Then I cut all around the diameter up to the board, making a fringe. I use regular tap I gather the paper and tape it in four places as in the photo.
Then I gather and tape it down all around. Or you can just tape it like a parcel like this.
I tape the corners and trim. Here is the round one taped down.
Then I cover the back with paper cut slightly smaller than the diameter of the board and I afix it with double sided tape. I then cover the board with basket wrap cellophane and gather it to the back and tape it. Sometimes I glue gun a smaller board to the back of my board so that it is easier to pick up the boarded cake.
Well my phone is acting up and the camera won't work now. Wanted to show you the finished boards but..and my computer crashed again...
Camera is working at the moment. Here are the finished boards also covered with cellophane basket wrap which is food safe.
Thank you for the detailed instructions with photos! I just went with white paper from Michaels here and their choices were limited. I think I saw some cellophane next to it and I have to go there later to get more clear vanilla so I'll check it out. Thanks again. Off to get it done.
I did make Indydebi's icing and it is great. Wilton's clear vanilla now tastes close to the real thing.
Your paper is so cute! Where did you get it?
