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 //

STEP 1:

Open up the design space and find the following flower images from the image library: #M4431D , #M3CBDF & #M3D7E1

STEP 2:

Vary the sizes of how big you want these, I sized mine around 8 inches wide.

STEP 3:

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.

STEP 4:

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.

A Charming English Barn Wedding: Emma & Scott

A Charming English Barn Wedding

When I was first introduced to Emma and Scott’s story I had a very deja vu moment. In fact I had to double check the couples names as I really thought I was reading the story of how one of my best friends had first met her husband.

Any way I digress. Today’s wedding has some of the most beautiful styling I have ever seen in a barn! Beautiful rustic floral displays, pretty pastel bunting, loads of fairy lights and all brought to life with the most fantastic photography! What really struck me with Emma and Scott was their desire to make sure everyone shared some part in their special day, holding a wedding in both New Zealand and back here in the UK, to make sure their most nearest and dearest could celebrate with them. Their first ceremony was held in New Zealand so it was only right that parts of that were included back home. In honour they had the best bottle labels made up, using an image from the original ceremony, along with the cutest surprise from Emma’s brothers, which featured a video of sweet messages from their family and friends back in New Zealand!

Here is Emma and Scott’s story…
