I took the inspiration straight from the talented Racky for this project! You can find her tute here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=303196.0
Instead of using plastic eggs I used Styrofoam. These were made for a wonderful Craftster friend for her wedding!
A shot of the bride and groom together.

The bride. I made the tiny silk roses for her head out of a deep purple satin. She has snaps for eyes and ink details. The wire I used for legs is a rusty bit I found at work!

The groom. He has a tiny felt top hat with a dark orange hat band and tiny orange bow tie! His eyes are the other half of the snaps.

They were so much fun to make! They should look super cute on the cake table.
Thanks for looking! Wink

Adorable! I get a kick out of the fact that the groom has the "male" end of the snaps, and the bride has the "female" end.
I need to get to work on my styrofoam eggs!

AI you never fail to amaze me! You take projects and put your own spin on them and somehow make them better! I'm pretty sure Spooky Pooky LOVES them. Hey, PM me if you're interested in a personal swap.

These are amazingly well done! Super cute, yet super arty at the same time.
I love them to bits. They will look wonderful on the table and they are sure to get A LOT of comments.

I was off to save the world....until I was distracted by something shiny.
