Craft Project: Tea Towel Cake

Here's an easy inexpensive craft you can make for last minute gifts. Directions below.

Supplies:
Tea towel
Cardboard
Corrugated Cardboard - any color will work
Plastic Holly Pick - cup cake picks, craft picks, whatever you want to use
Rubber band
Cellophane
Ribbon

1. Roll the tea towel into a cylinder and secure with a rubber band.

2. Trace a circle onto the cardboard and cut out. This will be the base for the tea towel cake so it should be the same size as the rolled up tea towel.

3.Cut a strip of corrugated cardboard out to wrap around the towel (refer to picture). Staple the cardboard together.

4. Place the the towel onto the cardboard circle. Place a decorative pick in the center or the tea towel. Wrap the cake with cellophane. Tie closed with ribbon. Done.

How cute! I will definitely make a few of these throughout the year! I guess they would also make a really cute welcome-baby gift.

Totally charming, probably the best presentation for a tea towel gift I've ever seen!

Super cute! You could probably make little muffins/cupcakes with smaller towels. :)
