On Saturday September 17th, my friends Nancy and Stephen got married.
Back in August, Nancy showed me a photo of a Mexican Fiesta-style cake with papel-picado out of icing. There was also a photo of the cake topper that was pretty cool. She wasn't sure how to find one like it.........
I offered to make her one as a gift.
I sat at Oolie's dining room table and made the above couple - Nancy and Stephen!
They are both made of pipe cleaners and dressed in silk (!)
The arbor was the part I really spent the most time on. Wrapping the wire and adding the beads and flowers - fun! I am so happy with how it turned out.... and so was Nancy. (note the beaded "N" and "S")
It makes me smile and Nancy said that it was the most photographed thing at the wedding (ha!) I bet it was the Bride, don't you?
A long and happy life to Nancy and Stephen! xoxo
