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.
Thank you to Larry Sanders of Sanders Visual Images for the great photo of the finished product!
