Glitter Letter Cake Topper

3 years ago

This has been the first year that Vaughn did not want something specific on top of her birthday cake. No Dora, no princess, no butterflies. All she wanted was a chocolate cake and something fantastic on top. Take it from me, when you're trying to impress a soon-to-be six year old girl the answer is always glitter. And the more the better.


I figured glitter scrapbook paper would be perfect because it's lightweight but heavy enough so the letters stand up. I first envisioned gold letters but I couldn't find the right shade of gold paper. I saw this deep shade of pink and knew it would be great.    



I typed out Vaughn's name (font Bebas Neue) into my computer, printed them out, then cut out the letters. I then traced the letters onto the scrapbook paper and, again, cut them out. I snapped bamboo skewers in half and used a small dot of hot glue to attach the skewer to the letter.  



I loved the finished product and Vaughn did too.
