Back to School

It's that time of year again...back to school! 

A "cake" made out of school supplies makes a perfect gift for your favorite student or teacher.
For another variation, check out the video on how to make a Pencil Cake on

 For this project you will need the following supplies:
1 Circular Container
2 Rubber bands
Erasers (yellow)
Paper Clips or Colored Rubber bands

Start by punching 3 holes in the bottom of a container.  Place one pencil in each hole.  These will be the candles on the cake.  Wrap two rubber bands around the container.

Place pens or pencils underneath the two rubber bands to cover the entire circumference of the container.

On the top of the cake scatter colored paper clips or rubber bands for the frosting.  Place yellow erasers on top of the pencils (candles) in the middle of the cake to create flames. 
This cake will get anyone excited to go back to school!
