Soccer Party Time!!

Happy Birthday to my Stepfather, Chuck!  Chuck is a huge soccer fan and one of the best coaches in the world!  So, for his birthday this year, I decided to a soccer theme.
First, a banner made using my Cricut.  I used the Alphalicious and Sports Mania Cartridge.  Each of the soccer balls was embellished with some silver stars cut with My Favorite Things Star Die-Namics.
Next a Hershey Miniatures cake.  I couldn't find any cute soccer paper, so I just improvised using this Bo-Bunny paper and some soccer ball stickers.  The cake topper looks like a Mickey Mouse head, but it's not supposed to!  I cut the circles out using a variety of Nestabilities.  A paper punched heart accents the sentiment that was stamped using one of my favorite Dandelion Designs stamps.

Chuck loves cupcakes, so I made some cupcake toppers.  Unfortunately, I don't have a picture of the cupcakes.  We celebrated his birthday the day he and Mom and to take me (at the crack of dawn) for a test at the surgery center.  Needless to say, I was nervous, cranky, tired, and hungry, and I didn't  take a picture with the cupcakes.  But they were really good. 

To transport his cupcakes home, and future ones that I will make for him, I bought a cake carrier at Walmart for just under $6.00.  For my first time cutting vinyl, I personalized the cake carrier with my Cricut.  So, now when ever Chuck wants cupcakes, he just needs to bring his carrier back, and I will fill it back up for him.
The carrier was very big and it was hard to take a picture showing the finished product, so I had to take it in three pictures:

Chuck and my Mom were quite pleased with it.  I had the banner hanging on the wall, and Chuck took it down very quickly and wanted to go home immediately to hang it up in his home office.  It was very sweet.

Thanks for stopping by,


  1. Everything came out just great! I'm sure that Chuck really loved it all. So, the vinyl just sticks to the plastic and does not fall off? Can you wash it with the letters still attached?

    1. Hi Nizza,

      Thank you so much, I'm glad you liked it. The vinyl sticks right onto cake carrier, kind of like Contact Paper. Since it's on the outside of the carrier, if it gets dirty, you can probably just wipe it gently with a paper towel.

      Have a great day!
