Magnolia DooBee Pop Wedding Cake


Since I've got a couple requests on making my blog posts in English, I thought I'd give it a try!
My English isn't very good, so please bare with me and feel free to ask any questions if there's something that's unclear :)

For today's project I've made a wedding cake using the DooBee Pop paper from Magnolia.

The DooBee Pop paper is a honeycomb paper, which is basically a stack of tissue paper that's glued together in a special way, so that when you unfold it, you get a gorgeous honeycomb pattern, 
of which you can make 3D-embellishments for your cards, or 3D-projects, like the one I'll show you today :)
It's very simple, and very fun! :) 

Here's a great video tutorial made by Tim Holtz on how this kind of paper works. 

What I found while working with these papers, is that it can be a bit tricky to create big things like this one, since there's a limit on how much you can stretch out your paper. 
So what I did, was that I adhered a couple of pieces of DooBee Pops together with doublesided tape, so that the paper became thicker and got the ability to stretch out even more :)

The cake is decorated with lace and pearls to create the look of icing, 
and I also added some flowers to add a bit of colour :)

Here's a closeup of the flowers :)
I sponged them gently with some white acrylic paint, added clear glue and dipped them into a jar of glitter :)

Men Hanna!?
Dålig på engelska?? What? Inte enligt vad jag kan se i alla fall ;) Så otroligt vacker tårta, det är ju knappt att man kan fatta att du gjort den här av "bara" lite papper! Underbar, precis som du :) Ljuvliga rosor på toppen där också :) Fantiserat om din egen bröllopstårta när den komponerades? ;)


Ingba sa...

Vilken fantastisk tårta! Jag kunde inte ens föreställa mig att man kunde göra en sån underbar skapelse av bara papper. Blommorna på toppen är också ljuvliga.
