I want to say THANK YOU!! to Kitty from Sweet Sticks by Pada Cake for these AMAZING cake pops! I told her exactly what I wanted and she did it! CLICK THIS for her facebook page!
Hot Glue gun + glue
Spray paint the birdcage white. Wait a couple of hours for it to dry completely.
Wrap your ribbon around the entire cage. I chose to use a thick ribbon and a thin, sheer ribbon on top of it.
I tied them together to make a pretty bow.
I hot glued a flower to the top. Since this was for my twins baptism, I added crystal crosses to the flower and to the bow.
And here it is displayed at the Baptism:
I fell in love with some pretty fancy Communion invitations I saw on Etsy. But being the crafty person I am, I knew I could do it myself for way cheaper than $8 a card!

I ordered 5×7 press cards thru my pro lab and got them with a pearl finish. This might be the only tricky part you may encounter if doing these yourself. Mpix is a professional lab for consumers and they MIGHT have pearl press cards, but I can’t be sure. I took the silver glitter scrapbook paper and cut it just a little bit bigger than 5×7 so it would make a nice border around the pearl card. Take your printed card and wrap lace around it, the ends being on the back. I used tape to tape it onto the back to hold it in place. I then took a piece of plain white ribbon and did the same thing. I had pre cut a bunch of them so I could just grab and not measure. I had pre made bows using the white ribbon as well. I used hot glue to glue the bow onto the ribbon. I then used glue dots to attached the printed card onto the glitter paper. I added the crystal embellishments to the curves on her name and boom, done.
I made these for the twins baptism.
Chocolate for melting
Melt the chocolate which ever way you prefer. I used the double boil method for this. Once the chocolate is melted, cover the pretzel rod in the chocolate and lay on wax paper to start drying. When they are semi dry, sprinkle with decorations.
Put them in the freezer for 3 minutes to finish drying. When done, bag and tie!
