1. Trace the outline of the wooden disc onto the patterned paper & cut out.

2. Apply a generous coat of rubber cement to the disc & adhere the paper circle on top. While the rubber cement is still wet, you can slide the paper around until you get it in the perfect spot. Once you have it in place, press firmly. Trim along the edges if there is over hanging paper.

3. Next, lay out the tissue paper horizontally (landscape) and fold in half, short edge to short edge. Continue folding the sheet in half until you get down to about 3 inches.

4. Holding the creased edge, fold over 3/4 of the way to the other edge.

5. Apply hot glue to edge of the wooden disc & attach tissue paper. Continue until you’ve gone all the way around the disc.

TIP: This is what it should look like on the inside.

6. Once you’ve attached the tissue paper, take your scissors and cut strips (about 1/4 inch) all the way around.

8. Using glue dots attach the completed disc to a pedestal of your choice! {We used a white candlestick holder.}

TIP: For a playful touch, make multiple stands with different paper and trim colors. (At the event, we also used gold glitter paper and pink fringe.)
