I had wanted to get a blinged out cake topper, with a certain font,and I had looked at a ton of websites. here to my mistake, I didnt look HARD enough!
Well thanks to the lovely Bees- I FOUND the font I wanted to match my aisle runner! ( I had looked at the site before, but the name of it was different so I didnt think they had it until another bee sent me BACK to the site for a harder look)
I had the rest of the supplies at home already,and did not even use half the supplies I did have, but in all fairness heres the total break down of costs:
$4 Wooden G
$.50 Black paint
$.50 metallic gray paint
$6 1000 hotfix rhinestones on ebay
my fiance will add a small stake to it yet, but we have plenty of dowels on hand at home.
My Pic is horrible as I took it with my phone this dreary morning…. so it doesnt show the true sparkle of it~!
this is the aisle runner I wanted to match the letter to, I think its a good match!

i got the wooden letter G from Craftcuts.com. The script is cancellerasca.The height is 6 inches.
You can download the font itself online, which I have to use it in our programs and invites.

Did you make your aisle runner or did you have it made? What’s the mm size of your rhinestones on your cake topper?

i designed and hand painted the runner
for the rhinestones i mainly used one size, however there are a few that i used larger and smaller ones.
the majority of them were 3.00 mm – heres where i got them
the other sizes, i had left over from doing my veil, a multi size pack i had picked up at AC MOORE

Hi! I love your topper- My question is – What was the thickness of your letter?
My letter will be an L – How many crystals do you think i would need?
Did you glue yours on? I see you got the hotfix- do those already has glue on them? Im starting out with this.. sorry for all the questions..lol

@ stacey916..i used 1/4 inch thickness and 6 inches height. I dont not know how many rhinestones I used, I bought a small bag of over 200 on ebay, its a lot cheaper then going to the craft stores.
the hotfix rhinestones have glue on the back of them already, you just heat up the hotfix tool and the glue melts. You can also use a glue gun, but that way is more messier and a lot more glue strings.
