Instead of doing a cake like I normally do, I went for much simpler! I used a regular black cupcake stand and spruced it up a little bit! I cut "The world of cars" at fit to page for a standard piece of cardstock. I then used wooden skewers that I painted black, hooked them to the back and then stuck them in that green spongy stuff you put fake flowers in (can't remember the name, LOL) I decided to wrap the green stuff in red tissue paper and to hold it in place, used a couple ribbons and hooked it to the stand. The little road along the bottom is also on the cartridge. I used my gypsy and welded four of the pieces together just and it worked out great! The little characters sticking out of the cupcakes were bought at Party city. I couldn't get the cricut to cut small enough to do my own and it saved a lot of time!
Table Centerpiece! This was my favorite out of everything! I made a little "cars" bouquet. I found the bucket for 50% off at hobby lobby. I cut the four characters at fit to page so each was a different size and then put the wooden skewers on the back and stuck them in the green stuff. I finished it off with some shredded paper I found at walmart for $1. I loved how it turned out and I am going to put it in my son's room because he LOVES cars!! It ended up being a little over 2 feet tall! The drinks! Last but not least, I wanted to add one more little touch that everyone loved. I searched under google images until I found this Rust eez label. I blew it up as big as I could and printed them off on my color printer. I then just took the labels off the 2 liters and taped these on. Super simple but was a nice addition to the party!
