A low cost wedding cake that you can actually keep forever!
April is finally here. I can almost smell the wedding seasons getting near. So I want to share this wedding cake gift box tutorial with anyone who might be looking for some DIY ideas. This is a gift that I made for my friend a long time ago. It was meant to be a gift box at her wedding reception and a jewelry box to keep after getting married. The tier part of the cake acts as the lid. The tag on the cake is reversible with one side that says the name of the couple and the other side, "happily ever after". The materials are also very simple and can easily be found at home or craft stores. It is a low cost wedding cake that you can actually keep forever.

Coat your box and lid with primer or white paint and trace the shape of the lid on felt after it is dry
Measure the diameter of the box (this will be your bottom tier) and determine your 2nd and top tier diameter (ie. 2", 4", 6" etc.)
Draw the circles with these dimensions on a piece of cardboard and cut them out.
Cut a long strip of cardboard that can follow around the circle cardboards. The height of these strips should not be taller than the bottom tier (the box). Make 2nd and top tier and adhere with glue
Adhere the white felt on all the tiers with glue
With a piece of yarn, drape around the tiers in a scallop form and secure in place with glue gun
Glue pearls around with glue gun
Adhere all the tiers on top of each other by glue gun, keeping everything center
