The continuing adventures of the fat controller and his wife....
Back to Mr & Mrs F C - as you can see from the photos at the top of this blog I have mounted them onto a central 3" circle of patterned silver card and then overlapped that onto two 3" circles of pale blue card. I edged the silver card with self adhesive pale blue crystals approximately a cm apart. I punched out 7 small butterflies using a woodware punch and after folding the wings up fixed one onto the groom's hat. I then took 8 silver ribbon mini roses and snipped off their stems before fixing them onto the edges of the pale blue circles at a regular interval using hot glue I then curled the stems of a further two silver roses and fixed them near the back of the circles again using hot glue. I tucked the ends of the curled stems under the silver card and on the top of the curls I glued 3 punched out butterflies onto each stem using PVA glue. I'm really pleased with how it's turned out and I think it'll be an unusual and unique wedding cake topper.
Well thank you for taking the time to read this blog, I hope you've enjoyed reading about what I've been up to and I hope to share more of my crafty adventures with you soon. Happy crafting! Big hugs Sarah aka woo woo girl xxx
