Graphic 45 
Botanical Tea
Paper Cake Centrepiece

Hello dear G45ers! 
Sharing an OTP, a Paper Cake Centerpiece with 
Teapot Topper...what would a cake be without a topper right?
created with the gorgeous Botanical Tea DCE
Just love the pinks, greens and blues in this collection! 

How pretty wouldn't this piece look in the centre of a table 
of a party such as a High Tea?!
Tip : Adhere bows on lid only...being able
to open up the boxes. You can hide a little 
surprise/treasure on the inside.

I made this project with the help of my Silhouette!
