31 Days of Halloween - Day 20 - Halloween Cupcake Stand

It's already the 20th of Smeared and Smudged Forum's 31 Days of Halloween Blog Hop! Yea!  It's going by so fast!  I love all the wonderful projects that I'm seeing on my daily hops!  Take a bow, Wicked Bloggers!

Below are all the fabulous bloggers:

I am in love with my die cutting machine. It's a simple hand crank model, but I can cut tons of stuff with it! I won the Sizzix Cupcake Stand die when they had a big release bash for Eileen Hull's new designs! Sweet! I LOVE it!
 Sizzix Cupcake Stand Die
A Halloween themed tissue box
Heavy card stock for the base
Aleene's Original Tacky Glue
Aleene''s Tacky Double Stick Sheets
The Cupcake Die has 4 pieces, but you only need 2 of the shapes.
You will need 1 cut of top and 4 of the base.
I used a side panel from a Halloween tissue box.
I had a really lovely black satin finish card stock with shiny black polka dots for the base.
I used Aleene's Tacky Double Stick Sheets to stick the two pairs of base pieces together before sliding them together.
Once together, I added glue to the seems for extra strength.
Glue the top of the base to the back side of the top.
I added glitter glue to the edges of the top and base.
I didn't have a cupcake handy, so I set the tiny table with Tootsie Roll cheeseburgers and fries.
