Anyone for cake!

OK so it's not actual cake, and well its not for everyone.. but the title sounded good {ok its all i could think of} anyways...
I have my best friends wedding fast approaching and decided i wanted to make her a lovely gift box for all the treats, you know old, new,borrowed,blue.. so i decided on a 4 tier wedding cake box... it took me nearly all day to make but i am so happy with the outcome, it was defiantly worth all the hard work..


The photo's really don't do it justice
{i must try and get some better ones before i give it too her!}
I made 3 mini pizza boxes for the top 3 tiers and the bottom is a lidded box.
I used a selection of my MS punches to decorate the "cake" and some gold peel-offs.. {aarrhh i know.. peel-offs but it had to be done lol} and embellished with some red prima flowers & paper roses and leaves, oh and some sheer gold ribbon.
I'll not be crafting much now till after the wedding
but normal service should return early to mid sept, thanks for visiting x
