    Speckles - Go for it. Definitely cheaper than $50.

      Can't wait to start my blinged-out DIY cake topper. These look gorgeous! Our colors are lime green and royal blue, so I am going to try painting the letter lime green and choose blue rhinestones. That way a little bit of the green will peek out in between the stones...we'll see how it goes!

          Hi MissBubbles, I absolutely love the cake topper that you did! I was wondering how will you make it stand on the cake? Are you adding anything else to it!? Thanks!

             Thank you!! :o)  I plan to bling out the backside.. but other than that the only other thing I will do is attach 2 dowels to the letter so that it can easily be inserted into the top of the cake.  

             

            Did I mention I will be making sure I have my glue gun with me in my suitcase??  lol...

                  Seller:shop4femme-us

                  Qty:1
                  $5.10
                  Clear #00, 2880pcs (20 Gross)
                   
                  Loose Rhinestones lot of Hot Fix Iron on 4mm (SS16), 15 Colors to choose from
                  Qty:1
                  $5.90
                  Clear #00, 2160pcs (15 Gross)
                   
                  Selection of 2mm Round Shape Flat Back Rhinestones in Multiple Colors and Lots
                  Qty:1
                  $2.45
                  Clear #06, 3000 pcs
                   
                  Selection of 2mm Round Shape Flat Back Rhinestones in Multiple Colors and Lots
                  Qty:1
                  $2.45
                  Light Blue #10, 3000 pcs
                   
                  Ignore the blue.. I bought those to write I Do on the bottom of my shoes.. But I bought iron-on and flatback to see which would look best. I figured I could use the iron on for my tanks if it don't work out for the topper. 2mm will be super tiny, so I'm afraid it will be a bit tidious.. But from what I've read these are the most common used.. 12ss(3.5mm I believe), 16ss(4mm), 20ss(5mm).. But I also saw a gorgeous one done in only 10ss(3mm)
                   

                  Hi Bubbles. Where did you buy your rhinestones from? Do you know how many approximately you used? I found a site that where 144 come in a package for $2...I'm not sure how many packets of rhinestones I would need though? I see that yours are way cheaper for 3000 pieces!!

                     It is much cheaper to go ahead and buy more.  I have purchased from a couple other sellers in the past, but the seller I purchased the above items from came from a different seller. Let me find the name.
