Throwing a swim themed or pool party? An easy DIY craft tutorial idea for a Swimsuit Cake Topper and matching Invites perfect for any swimming party!
My oldest daughter recently turned 10. Isn’t that scary! I can’t have 2 kids in the double digits – that makes me old!
For her birthday, she wanted to go to the local swimming pool with her friends. That also meant I wouldn’t have to come up with party games and try to entertain a gaggle of silly, giggling girls. SOLD!!
For the party, we went pretty simple since we were only coming back to the house for cake and presents.
Supplies Used: Some links may be too similar items when exact items couldn’t be found online.
- Silhouette Cameo
- Clothesline Swimsuits – cut file
- White Cardstock
- Patterned Paper
- Glue Stick
- Invited Stamp
- 2 Bamboo Skewers
How to Make Swimming Party Invites
For the invites, I cut white cardstock into 4×6 squares, cut out the swimsuits out of different scrapbook paper, baker’s twine, and used a stamp set I had on hand for the invite.
How to Make Swimsuit Cake Topper
For the cake topper, I used 2 bamboo skewers, bakers twine and cut out two of each swimsuit so I could glue them back to back.
Tie a piece of bakers twine between the two skewer sticks.
Glue the 2 wrong sides together with the twine in between and towards the top so it looks like the swimsuits are hanging.
Tip: When in the Silhouette software make sure to mirror the second image so the fit together perfectly. I did not do this and the two pieces don’t match like I would have liked.
It already looks cute and it isn’t even on a cake yet!
Doesn’t it look even cuter when it is on the cake!
My daughter had a lot of fun at her birthday party, and that is the most important part!
