So what are you doing this weekend? This weekend, my plans include dropping my daughter off at a birthday party (kids sure get invited to a lot of birthdays these days!). It's the 5th birthday party of a classmate at her kindergarten. Time to try a fun giftwrapping idea! What better way to say 'Happy Birthday' than with a cake gift wrap?

You'll need paper in a colour of your choice, some washi tape and a pen. I used five strips of washi tape to make the layers for the cake and then  added five candles and a cake stand by pen. What do you think?
