Don’t get me wrong, I love real fresh flowers as much as the next girl but making a floral cake topper out of card was something I’ve been thinking of doing for a while and let me tell you guys, it was SO EASY! If you’re going for a real DIY look at your wedding then this cake topper is a great addition to the decor and really adds to that ‘handmade feel’ of a wedding! Here’s how to make your own…
YOU WILL NEED:
Cardstock in the colours of your choice for flowers (I chose light pink, bright pink, peach and lemon) // Teal card for foliage // Bamboo Sticks // A Cricut Explore // Craft glue //
Open up the design space and find the following flower images from the image library: #M4431D , #M3CBDF & #M3D7E1
Vary the sizes of how big you want these, I sized mine around 8 inches wide.
Pop your card onto your mat and hit go on the Cricut, do this several times, varying the colours of your card as you go until you have 8 flowers stencils.
This step is a little tricky to describe but you’ll need to roll up the flowers tightly then let them spring out and uncoil until a flower shape has formed! Glue this in place then allow to dry and repeat with your other flowers.
