OOLY Back to School Cake Tutorial:
Step 1: Make tracings on corrugated cardboard of the Lazy Susan Divided Turntable and 2 Tier Lazy Susan Divided Turntable circumference. These will be used later during the assembly process.
Step 2: Apply double-sided tape to the periphery of the Lazy Susan Divided Turntable and decorate with a colorful array of OOLY Chunkies Paint Sticks.
Step 3: Fill the Lazy Susan Divided Turntable dividers with your favorite OOLY products to surprise and delight your teacher. We suggest OOLY Dainty Donut Erasers, Creatibles Air Dry Clay, Rainbow Buddy Eraser, Icy Pops Fruit Scented Puzzle Erasers, and Oh My Glitter! Jumbo Eraser.
Step 4: Apply double-sided tape to the top of the Divided Turntable Lazy Susan to affix and secure the large cardboard disk.
Step 5: Fill the Glass jar with lid with Rainbow Sparkle Glitter Markers and Make No Mistake Markers. Place the Glass jar with lid in the center of the 2 tier Lazy Susan, atop the small cardboard disc foundation. Prep the 2 tier Lazy Susan by applying double-sided tape along its exterior scaffolding.
Step 6: Adhere the Hey! Critters Stacking Highlighters, Monster Stacking Highlighters, and Stampables Double Ended Scented Stamp Markers to the double-sided tape around the periphery of the 2 tier Lazy Susan.
Step 7: Add a pencil cup of your choice filled with OOLY Smooth Stix Crayons 24 piece set to the top of the 2 Tier Lazy Susan.
Step 8: Adorn the top of the 2 Tier Lazy Susan Divided Turntable with a medley of your favorite Sakox Lollypop Scented pens, organizing them around the pencil jar.
Step 9: To finish off the cake, add a ribbon around each layer, hiding any tape or cardboard seams. You can add optional mini pom poms or Macarons Puzzle Erasers to give it extra panache.
This school supplies cake can serve as a centerpiece for a back-to-school event, or a gift for a special teacher. What a great treat to bring some OOLY happiness to the start of the school year!
