    I wanted to share the cake topper that I made. I'm very happy with the way it came out.  I really wasn't able to get a really good picture of the sparkle, but I used all swarovski crystals on it and it sparkles like crazy!

    I also made straw flags to use on stripped paper straws.  These straws will be used in the welcome drinks that will be passed out when our guests arrive to the ceremony venue.

    Thanks for letting me share!  If you have any questions please feel free to ask.

          The actual wood letter was about $14.  I ordered it from craftyeddie and was able to pick the size and font I wanted.  It's hard to give an exact estimate since I ordered sooo many crystals for various projects but I'd say roughly around $35.  It's a little on the higher end since they were swarovski's... but I wanted them to be sparkly and last because I want to cut the "pick' off at the bottom after the wedding and will be making a shadow box and putting the letter in it. 

           

          If the sparkly factor doesn't matter, non-swarovski crystals can be used, but I feel that they get dull with the glue over time.

                These look fantastic.  Approximately how long did it take you to finish the bling on the topper?
