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.
Cake Topper Supplies:
• Gold Cricut Explore Air with exclusive content from JOANN
• Cricut Standard Grip mat
• Chipboard (the thickness of a cereal box)
• Gold specialty paper (available in-stores)
• Xyron Creative Station Lite with 5″ permanent refill
• Liquid adhesive
• Two 4″ white lollipop sticks
• For serving plate – Cricut Gold Window Cling
Select hooray image in Cricut Design Space and cut one each from chipboard and gold specialty paper (resize if needed).
Run gold hooray (gold side up) through Xyron machine.
Lay chipboard hooray right side up on your work area and lay lollipop sticks on the “h” and the “y” as shown.
Remove gold hooray from backing and gently adhere to chipboard, matching up edges as you go.
Stabilize lollipop sticks with liquid adhesive and let dry.
Add your topper to your cake…and get ready to paaaaaartay!
To create the serving plate, simply cut the same image using Cricut Gold Window Cling. Easy to apply, easy to remove, now you can have customized serving dishes for any event!
