Wedding Cake

Well, this is what I have been working on for the last couple of weeks.  A wedding cake made of paper.  I saw the idea in the new Feb/Mar 2011 Cricut Magazine.  I thought it would be perfect as a centerpiece for my sister-in-law’s Bridal Shower this past weekend.  It was a lot of fun to make!  I tweaked a few things from the one in the magazine. 

Materials:

1. Paper mache boxes from Joann’s (8″, 9″, 10″)

2. 24″ textured paper pad from DCWV

3. Open stock “I love you” paper from Joann’s

4. White card stock from Stampin Up

5. Martha Stewart sugar glitter

6. Cricut expression

7. Plantin Schoolbook (scallop circle and border) and Heritage cartridges (flower flourish)

8. Gypsy (not necessary, but makes things easier)

9. Glue pen for glitter and adhering to “cake”

10. Flowers and pearl picks from Michael’s

11. Ribbon from Joann’s
