What glue did you use for the crystals?
Venus909's DIY Cake Topper & Straw Flags

I love your cake topper. Can I ask how tall is it and what paint did you use? I think I am going to copy it and mix mine with swaroski and regular crystals.

Beautiful!!! I agree it is worth the extra cost for the swarovski crystals to get the extra dazzle.

Great job! Can I ask about your flags for the straws? What kind of template did you use? I've been playing around with the same thing, but I can't get it to come out lined up correctly. I have also thought long and hard about DIY cake topper, and I'm more inspired to do it! What material is your monogram? I know you mentioned removing the cake pick part, so I was wondering if it's metal or hard plastic.
Sorry for all the questions!

@kisha for the straw flags... I actually used an image that I found online and modified it in photoshop to make my own template. If you use photoshop I could probably share the template with you. I had a hard time getting it to line up to so I ended up only printing the lines on the top of the straw flag and cutting the end free hand.
The cake topper is actually thin wood that I painted and then after I painted it I added the swarovski crystals.
Let me know if you have any other questions..I'd be happy to help answer them

Thanks so much, I'm actually waiting on my copy of photoshop to arrive. Did you use elements, lightroom, or cs? Not sure if it makes a difference, but I would rather ask and be sure. I'm still playing around with photography so I don't mind purchasing the software.
