Step 1:

Cut out a circle approximately 2” wider than the disk. (Use a pencil to “trace” a guideline before cutting.)


Step 2:

Place disk (bottom side up) on the circle cut out (also bottom side up) and make a cut every inch or so around the disk.


Step 3:

One by one fold over each tab and tape onto the bottom of the disk.


Step 4:

Using an exacto-knife or scissor make an incision through the paper at the location of each slot on the covered disk.


Step 5:

It’s time to decorate! Adorn the sides of the disk with ribbon using a glue gun. When each disk had been decorated assemble the tree using the instructions here.


Step 6:

Add cupcakes and any additional decoration for a beautiful Cupcaketree!
