Earlier this month we discovered BARC wood papers and have been excited to use them in a DIY wedding project ever since. We are in love with the birch wood paper – a sheer veneer sheet that is made using real wood. It comes in sheets, tape rolls and larger rolls with either a paper backing or an adhesive backing so it’s really versatile and super fun to use. I’m a big fan of using a product like this in an unexpected place. With the wedding season upon us we have been looking at various projects to share with you over the next few weeks and the ivory tone of the birch wood paper lends itself perfectly to some of these projects. The grain of the wood reflects light in such a beautiful way it almost shines – expect to see more of it in some of our upcoming designs and DIY tutorials!
Today we wanted to share these sweet little DIY wedding cake and cupcake toppers with you. We think they are so cute that your guests are likely to be popping one or two in their purse at the end of the celebrations to take home and keep! I have to admit they would look just as cute in the base of a mini succulent planter as they do on these delicious frosted cupcakes. Both the wood paper and the intricate design make this the perfect project for your cutting machine and mean you can go ahead and print out as many as you need for your guests. The blossom design is the same used in our spring paper lantern tutorial meaning that your celebration tables can be handcrafted in a cohesive theme – watch out for the matching table numbers, wedding cake toppers and signage coming your way later this week!
