I’ll pass the Blog over to Chloe……………

Sometimes the job of a crafty wedding blogger involves more than meets the eye. Today’s DIY cake toppers, for example, consisted of the crafting plus two other important tasks – cake model shopping and ‘disposing’ of said cake afterwards… It’s a tough job you know ;-)

Step 1 ~ Print out the letters of your choice, I used the font Comic Sans in Word, size 200 and cut them out (carefully!)

Step 2 ~ Fold your card in half and glue together and allow to dry, to form a thicker piece of card.

Step 3 ~ Glue the letters face down on your double thickness card then cut out to form card board letters.

Step 4 ~ For the heart I used a shaped paper punch but if you don’t have one then repeat the steps above with a printed heart shape.

Step 5 ~ Coat the heart in pva glue then sprinkle with glitter and allow to dry.
