DIY Mini 3d Star Cake Toppers

  • Fiskars Star Lever Punch
  • Bamboo skewers
  • Hot glue
  • Metallic gold paper
  • With your gold paper in hand (we spray painted ours on plain white cardstock as mentioned in our previous garland DIY), punch away your star shapes with this star punch. You want this specific star paper punch shape for this. Its lever punch also makes it easy to use, and it’s 2″ size is great for a variety of projects as mentioned above.

    Fold each end of the star, matching end to end. A bone folder will come in handy if you’re making several of these. Dab a bit of hot glue on the back of your stars to secure the skewers in place. Netflix and wine type DIY.

    Country Meets Bohemian Wedding in Nashville

    Bohemian Weddings

    Sometimes we get weddings I catch myself staring at over and over again, and today’s from High Five For Love Photography is a prime example. Shaylee and Ryan had a wedding that perfectly fused bohemian and rustic style, for a look that’s as timeless as it is au courant. Let’s jump in!

    From the photographer, Chrissy of High Five For Love Photography: Shaylee and Ryan are our people, and this wedding was a freakin’ blast. We fell in love with them instantly when we met, and their engagement session goes down as one of our favorites ever. We’re so thrilled to add their wedding to that list, as well. The details were incredible — gigantic pink and gold balloons, the loveliest bouquets and succulent boutonnieres, gold foil temporary tattoos, the sweetest ring bearer, and DIY goodness all over the place.

    The moves on the dance floor were so fresh — just wait ’til you get to the reception! Shaylee + Ryan got down to Mariah Carey’s “Always Be My Baby” for their first dance and rapped their way through the entire evening. Stank-faces galore. Of course one of our favorite things about the day were the communal prayers that were so sacred, so full of genuine love, and so empowering for this couple starting their new life together. From start to finish, this wedding was pure joy to capture. So, so honored to do it.

    Our number one goal on a wedding day is to show truth. We want the vulnerable honest imperfect and gritty real-life stuff. Ugly crying from how stinking happy you are to be married.

    DIY Streamer + Sparkle Cake Topper

    DIY Projects

    This morning’s wedding photoshoot designed by Savage Rose and note•ify just keeps spawning fun ideas. Our next DIY project made by Samantha of note•ify is quite possibly one of our favorites yet. It requires minimal crafty expertise, and with a simple text line with your and your beloved’s names printed onto cardstock, this heirloom kitsch craft is a total winner on my book. Thank you Lilia Photography for the images!

    DIY Fringe Cake Topper

    From Samantha: Lilia Photography and Savage Rose organized a sixties styled wedding shoot, and they invited me to create the printed materials. We wanted sparkle, gold and glam, but the affordable + DIY kind. In addition to the embellishments I made with gold metallic ink on the invitations, I made a cake topper from pink card stock and added gold curling ribbon to make it sparkle.

    DIY fringe streamer banner cake topper

    What you’ll need:

    – metallic gold curling ribbon
    – cardstock
    – glue or tape
    – wooden skewers
    – metallic paint pen

    DIY fringe streamer banner cake topper

    Print out your cake topper banner and cut to any shape you’d like. You can even create a template on a separate piece of cardstock to trace it + cut it. Cut a second shape on leftover cardstock to use it on the back of your cake topper. Run glue or adhesive along the bottom half of the shape and start placing the ribbon along the bottom. You may choose to cut the ribbon in strips in half to create different widths, or you may choose to curl them a bit on the bottom.

    DIY Fringe Cake Topper

    Once you have covered the area you wanted with the ribbon, you may trim the bottoms to make them even if you wish. Take your wooden skewers and ‘paint’ them with a paint pen. Once dry, attach them at the ends of the shape with glue or adhesive and then use your blank shape to cover the back. Voila! Sparkly, cake topper banner with streamers!

    Alexis June Weddings

    Hello beautiful! We’re Brandi + Ryan, the husband-wife photographers behind Alexis June Weddings. So who is Alexis June? They are the two loves of our life, our daughters, Kierstyn {whose middle name is Alexis} and Kaija {who was born in June}. Two years ago we sold everything we own to pursue our dreams and move across the country to NYC. We’ve been married for nine years and still crazy in love. Ryan speaks Norwegian. Brandi loves everything about Norway. Ryan has his MBA from Notre Dame, but loves to cook. Brandi was a journalist in the United States Air Force and eats everything Ryan cooks. Together with our girls we live in Atlanta, Georgia and cherish every day together.

    Being wedding photographers is an honor and a privilege, to be a part of one of the most important moments in a someone’s life is deeply personal. Capturing a couple’s love story together makes what we do even more special. We have laughed, we have cried and we have experienced those joyous moments when its more about two individuals joining as one and less about the details. It’s about the marriage. It’s about the future. Love is a gorgeous thing and we are truly passionate about what we do. We believe everyone has a story and it should be told.

    This is our story, what is yours?

    What you’ll need:
    – Bird’s nest, or nest makings (can be found at Michael’s)
    – Little birdies
    – Tiny paper flowers
    – A small piece of felt
    – PVA glue or glue gun
    – Dried moss

    Instructions:
    Step 1: Start by shaping the nest so that it is the right size for your cake and has enough space for your birdies to sit comfortably.

    Step 2: Start filling the nest with some dried moss and secure using PVA glue. Note: You can use a glue gun here, but I find the “glue strings” hard to avoid.

    Step 3: Once dried, sit your birdies in the nest. It’s up to you whether you glue them in or not.

    Step 4: Pretty the nest up with some tiny paper flowers and finish by gluing a piece of felt on the bottom of the nest to avoid sneaky bits of nest ending up on mum and dad’s piece of cake!

    DIY Teacup Cake Topper

    DIY Projects

    Another project sent by Julia, who also made this adorable DIY Travel Paper Plane Mobile. This time she made a teacup cake topper, that can be found either at thrift stores or in your grandma’s cupboard. It’s a great alternative if you would like to honor your grandparents if the traditional figurine cake topper is not your thing.

    DIY Vintage Teacup China Cake Topper

    What you’ll need:

    -flowers
    -vintage teacup and saucer
    -floral foam
    -twig
    -colored paper
    -paper embellishments (I used pearl stickers)
    -glue dots
    -tape
    -scissors
    -pen
    -bowl of water

    DIY Vintage Teacup China Cake Topper

    Instructions:
    Step 1: Trim floral foam to a size that will fit snugly into your teacup. Poke holes in the top to allow water to soak through better.

    Step 2: Place floral foam in a bowl of water and tape down so it doesn’t float up. Make sure water gets into the holes you poked. Allow foam to soak at least ten minutes, but ideally over an hour (the more water it has, the longer the flowers will last).

    Step 3: Arrange trimmed flowers in teacup, poking stems into the foam. If stems are soft or really thick, make a hole in the foam before inserting flower so you don’t break the stem.

    Step 4: Cut paper into a flag shape and write names of the bride and groom on it. Embellish with whatever you choose (I used pearl stickers).

    Step 6: Place teacup and saucer on cake and take lots of pictures!

    Damien Milan Photography

    Typical of photographer Damien Milan’s work, is a magnetic intensity of closeness. There’s something about the way he captures a moment, something intoxicatingly real and raw. From the texture of landscape and dress, to the intimacy of pre-wedding preparatory steps, Damien’s approach is one of telling a story through detail – the quiet drama of technique and of tone.

    Australia based, Damien and his partner Anastasia have an international scope and are available for booking in and around Europe to which they are already traveling every summer (June – September). If planning an international or destination wedding, consider the practicality and cost-saving of a trusted photographer already in situ.
