Place your notebooks in a stack and hold against your paper towel roll. Wrap a rubberband around the stack and move to about two inches from the bottom of the roll. Place another rubberband around the roll and place about two inches from the top.

Spread out the notebooks so that they fully cover the paper towel tube. You may want to either double one of your bands or add another one.

Place pencils into the top of the cake. Placing a few large silk flowers into the top will help hold them in.

Cover the rubberbands with your ribbon by making a rough measurement; cutting the ribbon; an adhering using hot glue. You can either hot glue it to itself on the ends or hot glue it to the rubberband itself. Place silk flower on the different layers as you choose.
