Back in the spring, I completed a custom quilled paper project: a wedding cake topper. I've made these before, but this was a special project because it was for Brian French of French Paper Company, a small paper company in Michigan making the most gorgeous line of paper I've ever encountered. I drooled over it as a graphic designer and often recommended their paper to my clients for print projects and used it for my own identity package.
Brian asked if I would be willing to create a cake topper for him and his fiancé, using all French Paper. It was a thrill and I accepted immediately. It was also a challenge: in my artwork, I use paper specifically made for quilling and I wondered how the French Paper would work and roll. But it worked beautifully and came in plenty of colors to allow me to reproduce a lovely miniature paper bouquet to match their wedding flowers, as well as wedding clothes, hair, and skin tones. It turned out beautifully.
Do you have a wedding coming up? These small and detailed figurines make stand out gifts, can be placed near the wedding guest book, and of course, work beautifully on top of a small cake! Contact me to get started.
