or in the U.S.
Soccer. Soccer. Soccer.
Do you have a soccer fan in your family?
Piano Man is on a soccer club, and he and his buddies play at recess, after school, and read about latest player stats.
So what do you do with a little soccer fanatic when his birthday comes up?
You make soccer cake toppers!
Black card stock (several sheets)
Glue stick/Aleene’s Tacky Glue
Circle Hole Puncher (not pictured)
(Note: I used a 1 7/8″ hole puncher. You can purchase one at a local craft store.)

Step 2. Cut out soccer balls and happy birthday sign.
If you prefer, you could carefully use the circle hole puncher to get a clean and even cut. But I like the handmade, imperfect look.
Step 3. Punch out several black circle car stock pieces.
You will need at least 9 or 10 black card stock circles. That’s just for the happy “b-day” portion. You need several more black card stock circles for the soccer balls and additional lettering for your child’s name.
Step 4. Glue soccer balls and letters separately.
(Note: You don’t want to glue the soccer ball on one side and then the letters on the other side.)
You can use a glue stick or Aleene’s Tacky Glue to secure the soccer ball or letter to black card stock.
Step 5. Tape toothpick to the back of one of the soccer balls or letters.
I have tried to glue the toothpick to the back, but it takes too long for it to dry. I’d rather secure the toothpick and worry about gluing the circle cut outs back-to-back. See next step.
Step 6. Glue soccer ball and letter pieces together.
Do that for all your letters and you have….
Step 7. Voila! Project complete!
You have made personalized soccer-themed cake toppers!
