Handmade dummy

Hi all, lovely peps!
I was planning to make a three tier dummy cake, but I only
had two styrofoam dummies.
So I thought to do myself another one.
I also think that a similar method could be used to enlarge or to extend dummies you already have got.

You will need:
thin cardboard
bubble wrap
scotch tape

Choose the height and the diameter of your dummy-to-be (to have a cylinder 10 cm diameter and 7.5 height, I cut a strip 7.5 cm height and 122 cm lenght out of the cardboard, and a strip 30 cm height 122 cm lenght out of the bubble wrap).

Fold twice on itself the bubble wrap, to have the same height of the cardboard, and secure with scotch tape.

Add the cardboard strip and secure once again, both sides.

Tightly roll the thick strip and secure the end with some scotch tape.

You can add further strips, if needed.

Cut a circle 10 cm diameter out of the cardboard and secure it onto the cylinder you just got, with some scotch.

Press a little bit to level and you’re done! Almost perfectly done!
