We’re huge fans of today’s DIY project, not only because we’re rose gold and copper-biased, but it can also be done fairly quickly and customized to whatever size you’d like to use. We chose to create a delicate cake topper, but you can certainly recreate the tutorial on a bigger scale to make a garland or a larger wreath to display at your reception (or even in your home). Thank you to Opal+Rose Photo for capturing the step-by-step images and end result!

This project is QUICK to make. This petal squeeze punch was able to handle thin copper sheets up to 0.04″ in thickness. It holds up much better than foil and you can use it as a garland or wall art and it won’t wrinkle or bend easily. This copper laurel topiary could also be mounted on a wood block for a shelfie addition.
