toppers almost finished
What a bargain i found while shopping @ Patcatans last week. Ladies, if you have a patcatans near you i HIGHLY suggest you shop there for specific items instead of Michaels, they are def. better priced & have more of a selection for wedding items!
they are not totally finished yet, ran out of rhinestones & couldnt trek through the 20 inches of snow we got! but I bought the cake toppers there for $1.00 each regular priced & the rhinestones (2 packs) for 2.99 each.
altogether this project cost me $9.00, when these SAME toppers are found online for $45 & up. WOO! GO ME ;)
futuremrswilson made me realize i didnt explain to you ladies how to apply the rhinestones.
I actually took what i had at the house (a nail, yes a small nail & tacky glue)
I used the flat side of the nail, dipped it in a little glue & added the rhinestones to the topper.
FYI: make sure when doing toppers like this you use tacky glue or jewelry glue. Stay away from Super glue. Not only does it dry to fast but it leaves a smudged/blurry look on the rhinestones & the topper causing them not to sparkle.
