Get crafty and celebrate summer with this DIY Summer cake topper made with shiny foiled paper.
While I normally want to kick off summer with a cake or cupcakes, I was outvoted and this delicious pan of brownies was exactly what the family wanted for a summer treat. No problem though, because this plate of treats is decorated with a great little cake topper that literally screams SUMMER! You can make your own summer cake topper using this tutorial!

In your electronic cutting machine software, size both the sun and the word ‘summer.’ Group them together and then use the offset panel to create an outline of the whole design. Ungroup the whole design and separate each element to its own page.
Using cardstock, cut out two pieces of the background and the word ‘summer.’ Then cut out the sun, the center of the sun and the word ‘summer’ again, using Rinea foiled paper.
Adhere the foiled paper sun cutouts to one of the background pieces. I used the Xyron Creative Station for this step. Adhere the foiled paper ‘summer’ to the cardstock ‘summer’ then stick it on top of the sun.
Flatten the top part of the paper straw and glue it between the two background pieces of cardstock.
Stick it in some fresh brownies and enjoy!
