    In efforts to save money I decided to bling-out my cake topper myself.

    I purchased it for 7.99 + 4.60 shipping = $12 for a 4.5" mirror finish acrylic initial from FactoryDirectWedding on E-bay. Super happy with the product and they had lightning fast shipping! Seriously it was 2 days from the time I paid and when it arrived at my house, with No rush shipping.

    I bought my crystals at Hobby Lobby, much better pricing and quality than the ones I bought at Michaels. Unfortuantely I lost the receipt so I couldn't take them back. 3 packs x 3 = $9 with lots left over. I feel another project coming on! I also used turquoise glitter glue that works for plastic and acts as a good filler. All in all it was just under $25.

    Here's my how to:

    This is my inspiration cake, so hopefully it will look like my "vision" LOL. I will probably order the flowers when I get there unless I can get a price from the WC to see if it is cheaper to get real-touch fakies.
