Paper Firework Cake Topper

Paper Firework Cake Topper

Can we all agree that the best part about the Fourth of July is fireworks? I am always mesmerized by amazing firework shows–the colors, the lights, the sparkle! I could do without the loud noise but there are pros and cons to everything. However, this Paper Firework Cake Topper gives you an amazing display without the noise! Perfect for your Fourth of July Celebrations, the colorful fireworks are a stunning scene when arranged atop an all-black cake to resemble the night sky. Dramatic and playful! All you’ll need is colored paper and some skewers. We’ve provided templates you can use on your die cut machine or you can hand cut them too. What are you doing for the holiday? We want to know your plans!

4th of July celebrations

Leave it to me to work last minute up to the holiday. You’re probably gone for the weekend and not even checking in on blogs. Awesome. We just had so much fun making projects that we couldn’t help ourselves! Last week we had a pre 4th of July picnic and had a blast. We brought tunes, some food, and drinks and enjoyed ourselves at the local park. I’ve already shown you a few of our projects but here are some other details that might help in your last minute preparations. (BTW: check out our video!)
No American celebration is complete without some lemonade and this is one of my favorite brands. We got ours from the local shop, Pop ‘n Sweets, but find out where you can get some near you here.
ME made a delicious pop rock cake and topped it off when sparklers. Guys, I am SO on sugar these days. I mean, how could I not?! And we carried the cake with our new handy dandy cake box from Pie Box which even comes with a nifty leather handle, perfect for bike riding! It even fits in cupcakes. It’s perfect.
