I like to give myself thematic challenges when crafting.  Can you imagine the theme for this one?  I lovewedding cake and thought it would be fun to make a paper version.  This is perfect for a bridal shower that could double as storage for all the small momentos that come from a wedding or to have at the wedding itself with a slit at the top for family and friends to give gifts of money.   It was painted white prior to being covered with an embossed cream paper.  I then added Dresden paper trims and ribbon. The final touches were the "icing" roses and strands of pearl beads.
