You get the picture.
Full disclosure, though. This memory orb tutorial will either test your patience or strengthen your pimp hand. You will have to decide which path to travel. It would be wrong of me to influence your decision.
Inside Out Memory Orb Cake Stand:
- Empty shoe box
- Marbles (I used 450 to cover the front, 2 sides, and about half of the back. I knew my cake stand would be facing a wall so I opted to save some time.)
- Hot glue gun
- Optional: Paint to cover up any words, logos, etc.
You have a few options depending on the type of shoe box you are using. You can: ditch the loose lid, tape the lid to the box, or cut the connected lid off. I opted to chop it off so I wasn’t gluing marbles on an awkward seam.
Money saving tip: Dollar Tree carries a 50 pack of marbles for, you guessed it, $1. Shocking, right?
Crafting tip: There is NO such thing as too much hot glue in a project like this. This memory orb cake stand does not stand a chance against a toddler. Although, all I cared about was it lasting through my Inside Out party.
Now, if only I was better at emotions and stuff…
