Hello fellow bees,
I have been a good girl. Firstly, I finished blinging my amazing cake topper:
Also, I found a pretty cool cardbox, had to make it my own. It was $25 at Joann’s, but with my 50% coupon I spent $12.50..
Before: (a little piratey)
It will be propped open like so:
I was weary about having it kind of open, and the hubs wanted to saw a hole in the top, but I really like that this can be kept and used as a keepsake after the wedding.
I also blinged out my hot pink Bridal Shower shoes, which I decided to also wear for my engagement shoot next weekend!! 🙂
Yucky Plastic Heel…
All blinged out! $25 shoes $15 of crystals with leftovers (used about 2.5 gross of 20ss sized Fuschia Swarovski Flatbacks) equals about $40 for amazing shoes! 😀

I think the shoes actually look a lot better with the added sparkle! The heel looked kind of dull and flat in a bad way, but with the stones WOW!

Thank you ladies!! I agree about the shoes.. that plasticky heel was not a good look!
For the cake topper, I ordered Swarovski crystals off eBay, 20ss 12ss and 9ss… I have tons left over but I used them for other DIY projects as well… I used a regular tacky glue from Michaels that I had already and an old pair of tweezers to help me line them. I basically winged it for both the shoes and the cake topper, but I suggest having multiple sized crystals so you can fill gaps in better.. 🙂

Not to hijack, but another tip for rhinestones is to dip a toothpick in the glue, pick up the crystal with the toothpick, and then slide the crystal where you want. Hope that helps someone! Your shoes look great!

@taniaelvin091011: This is probably a stupid question, but what is the box for? Love all your DIY! You did such an amazing job. Just think how much money you saved!!
