There is no shame in claiming box cake as your own (guilty!), but after many failed attempts in decorating, I, Rachael, have decided to leave the delicate frosted details up to the professionals! Instead, I’m going to show you an easy way to bump up your “homemade” cake to “party worthy” status with this DIY paper flower cake topper that you can definitely recreate at home.

Not only are paper flowers unmistakably original, but they’re also almost always served with a side of ooh’s and ahh’s come dessert time! All you need are ​a few simple materials to get started…

I’m going to be totally transparent here, and tell you that I technically have no idea what a sideboard actually is compared to any other piece of storage furniture.

Without making things anymore confusing, you can also consider this an Ikea hack, so I hope you’re stretched and ready for some Swedish furniture building! To make this even weirder, I actually repurposed front door knockers to be the giant hexagon handles, so there’s always that…

Now not to toot my own horn or anything, but I may be just a teeny, tiny bit obsessed with this DIY sugar scrub sand art inspired by their colorful new line!

Don’t get me wrong, I probably won’t be adapting any sand art themes into my home decor or anything, but it’s fun in small, colorful doses with things here and there (especially tucked away in the shower), don’t you think?! …
