Easy Party Projects with Cricut Explore Gold

Beth Kingston of Kingston Crafts here – and today I’ve got two quick and easy projects using the same image! One of the best things about Cricut is the ability to turn any image in Design Space into a variety of projects using different materials. Using this hooray image from TomKat Studio(exclusive to the Gold Cricut Explore Air at JOANN) I’ve created two projects that are perfect for any party – a cake topper and a customized serving plate! Each project took less than 15 minutes…which is perfect since I pretty much wait until the last minute to prepare for any occasion.
