Book Inspired Wedding Topper

I never in a thousand years would have guessed that I would make not one, but TWO wedding cake toppers in my lifetime. After making a bird topper for my wedding, my friend Amanda asked me if I would make a book inspired cake topper for her wedding.

Of course, I said yes.

The topper is made with wooden books and a small wooden stand (from Michaels) that are painted with acrylic paint. I chose the books based on the couple's favorites and incorporated their wedding date and initials.

If you're interested in comparing, here's a the original cover of Amanda's favorite book and of Peter's.

And for good measure, let's see this baby in action!

Yay for weddings and pretty small handmade things!
