I’ve had this project I my list for so long, and IDK why it took that long…the total time for this project is about 10 minutes! That’s it! And looks great! :)
So on our wedding cake, the topper was our monogram; d B d
I had originally ordered this monogram from an Etsy shop called Plexicutz, but I think they went out of business (couldn’t find them). But there are several other ones you can choose from here.
Here are the things you will need:
- Shadow box to fit your monogram
- Xacto knife w/ blade
- Cutting pad
- Foam tape
- Black permanent marker
1. Cut off the pegs of your monogram. I did this by using the Xacto knife to create a cut, and then eventually it would snap off. Careful not to cut the back part of the monogram; it will show!
2. Cut the foam tape into thin pieces and stack to create your desired height. Create several stacks of foam tape per letter. This will create more support when it is hanging.
I used a six stack for the main letter “B” and a 3 stack for the smaller “D”’s and overlapped them. If you have any of the tape showing use the black permanent marker to cover it up.
3. I felt the shadow box needed something more. For our wedding our favors were heart shaped key chains. I took three of these key chains, took off the key chair part, added just one layer of foam tape and used them around the monogram.
And there you have it!
It will be hung on my gallery wall (coming soon). Feel free to get creative and use things you have memories of or things you would like to keep safe. Enjoy!
