DIY Cricut Cake Topper – Kids Space Party with your Cricut Maker

January 16, 2019

I love creating party decor and so when Cricut released the Knife Blade, I knew I had to make myself a Cricut cake topper. We put together an Outer Space Party to celebrate my nephew turning 11. See how easy it is to make your own cake topper with Cricut.make a cricut cake topper

I have loved the versatility that my Cricut Maker has given me and I especially love creating things that I normally would buy but wasn’t the aesthetic I was looking for. I’m able to make my own pretty fast and to me, it’s more practical because I have everything I need here at home.

Supplies for your Cricut Cake Topper

cricut maker and bladesHow to make a cake topper with your Cricut

You’re going to, first of all, need a Cricut Maker. Cricut released their Maker’s in August 2017 at a party that was beyond all parties. They have since been released in a few different colors like blush and blue but my trusty champagne color is perfect and gets the job done.

Begin by securing your 3/32″ basswood to a strong grip mat. I use some painters tape or masking tape to hold it on there securely. When you use the Cricut Knife Blade, you want to be sure that your project will not shift as your cutting. The tape helps prevent that. Next, load in your Cricut mat into the Cricut Maker.

Send your Cricut Design Space file to cut and choose basswood from the menu of materials and then it’ll show you to load your Knife Blade and select go.cricut cake topper for space party

Can I use Bluetooth with the Cricut Knife Blade

Yes, but it’s a little tricky. Cricut recommends using the USB cable to hook from a desktop to your Cricut Maker to avoid a call that can interrupt or even a game that can interrupt your cut. This is why the Knife Blade is not available on their mobile app.

I use Bluetooth to my Cricut Maker because my desktop computer is in the hallway and my Maker is in my bedroom and a hassle to move each time. I have only had one issue where it thought my Cricut was done but it was just a long pause so I had unloaded it and it wasn’t cut all the way through.

Don’t think that you cannot ever use Bluetooth with your Cricut Knife Blade, you can but there are risks involved so be aware of that.

how to use a Xyron

What kind of adhesive can I use with Cricut Chipboard and Wood?

You have two choices but you cannot mix the two. You can use a dry adhesive like a Xyron Creative Station or a wet adhesive like Mod Podge. This method is mainly for the Cricut Chipboard but it’s a rule I follow so I don’t ruin other projects.

I prefer to use my Xyron Creative Station with Cricut Chipboard or with any wood cutouts. It won’t leave a sheen or brushstrokes on my project and keep my Cricut cake topper clean.

How long does the Cricut Knife Blade cut for?

This really depends on your design. I can cut a circle in a matter of 3 minutes because it has that one line to follow and it doesn’t need to lift up and rotate the blade. My spaceship Cricut cake topper and stars took about 65 minutes.

Because it can take up to 5-6 hours to cut something, this is also why Cricut tells you to use the USB cord. Believe it or not, this cut was pretty fast and so I didn’t need to lug my Maker near my computer to be sure it wouldn’t cancel or shut down on me.

After I cut all the pieces for my wooden Cricut cake topper, I cut the same images out of cute outer space cardstock from My Minds Eye along with some glitter cardstock and orange cardstock for the mini window. Run them through my Xyron Creative Station and began adhering them to the wood.

I used this same method of making the window float as I did on these 3D rockets. Lay the thread on the back of the silver glitter cardstock and then adhered that as my first layer of the wooden Cricut cake topper. Then lay the second layer of the printed cardstock.cricut glitter cardstock

spaceship cake topperspaceship cake topper

For my wooden stars, I did the same thing.  Just lay the glitter cardstock over the wooden Cricut cake topper and set it aside.

How to make an Outer Space Cake

You’re going to need an 8″ hemisphere cake pan and any cake mix you like. Bake the cake according to package instructions and then allow it to cool completely.

I then took some black gel food coloring and added a small amount to my white frosting. Frost your cake and then you’re going to want to stick some black candy melts to resemble the craters on the moon.

Place your Cricut Cake Toppers into the cake and serve. What child isn’t going to love this space party? space party ideashow to make your own cake topper

DIY Space Party 3D Paper Spaceships

January 6, 2019

Create the coolest 3D Paper Spaceships for your next Outer Space Party. It’s the perfect addition to your tablescape and really easy to put together. And find out why I love my Xyron Creative Station.3d paper spaceships

This post contains affiliate links. Thank you for your support.

I have had the honor of being on Xyron’s Design Team the last 9 months and today is my last project of the year for them. I’m going to be having a space party next week and so I wanted to add some space decor to the table to coordinate everything. These 3D paper spaceships are perfect!

What is a Xyron Creative Station?

A Xyron Creative Station is a crafting adhesive that turns your paper into an automatic sticker. It comes in a 5″ size where you can use the 3″ and 5″ refills or a 9″ size which you can use the 5″ and 9″ refills. There are several kinds of cartridges you can find from permanent to removable adhesive or create some laminated magnets or just laminate without heat.

Xyron is one of my favorite companies to use when I have small pieces I need to adhere to something. Usually, I will cut an item that is really detailed and a liquid glue just can’t seem to work very well and often times it soaks the fine cardstock and then you lose the details in your project.

The Xyron Creative Station is perfect for small and large jobs. Below I used it for adhering the cardstock to my 3D paper spaceships but I’ve also used it to make some 3D scrapbook layouts, felt stickers, and some pretty intricate cards for Mothers Day.

This is by far the most versatile Xyron item but it well worth the investment. If you’re really just looking to make tiny pieces into stickers, the 1″ sticker maker is perfect for that. I found, though, that after I purchased my 1″, I moved to a 3″ and then to a 5″ and now I just use my 9″ Creative Station for everything.

Give your past crafts a look and see what Xyron product would be most beneficial to you.

How to make your 3D Paper Rockets

I used my Cricut Maker and created a file in Cricut Design Space. For these paper spaceships, I used my Cricut Knife Blade and some 2mm thick chipboard. Begin by opening the file and getting your paper set out.

I used this “Blast Off” line paper by My Minds Eye and it has the perfect holographic pattern and a minimalistic space theme. I’ve got the matching napkins and a little moon cake that I cannot wait to show you!  supplies to make a paper spaceship

Supplies for your 3D Paper Spaceships

So I began by cutting out my 3D spaceships with the chipboard. I created this file in Cricut Design Space and created a slit that was .1″ wide so that it was wide enough to have the chipboard snug with the scrapbook paper adhered.  cutting adhesive roll off Xyron creative stationAfter I cut matching pieces out of cardstock and my stars, I ran them through my Xyron Creative Station.

How do I make a piece of paper float on a craft?

Begin with the stars. Cut a piece of twine or fishing wire about 3.5″ long. Lay your string on the back of the star and adhere the other side over it. You’ll have two halves put together with a string in the middle. This will help create a floating look on your 3D paper spaceships.  placing invisible thread on yardstick adhering cardstock to Cricut chipboard hook 3d paper model togetherPlace the star in the middle of your chipboard spaceship piece and then lay the cardstock over the chipboard. This will secure the star so that it is actually “floating” on your paper spaceships. Place the other cardstock over the coordinating pieces of chipboard and then place the two slits together so it is standing straight.

Buffalo Plaid DIY Wrapping Paper with Deco Art Craft Paint

December 3, 2018

Buffalo Plaid is so trendy right now and I am here for it. Create the most glamorous Buffalo Plaid DIY wrapping paper easily by using DecoArt paint and stencils.

Thank you to Deco Art for sponsoring this post. All opinions are my own.

Supplies for your Custom DIY Wrapping Paper

Use your Dove Grey first for the base of your buffalo check wrapping paper. Because this wrapping paper is white, I’m just going to use the grey and black colors to add to my design. You could use white tones and do this on black wrapping paper too.

When making your own Buffalo Check DIY Wrapping Paper, be sure that each color is dry before you move on to the next step.

Begin with your crosshatching lines using Dove Grey. Allow at least one inch in between the lines and do two coats. Once your first coat is dry, take your Lamp Black paint and where the first lines cross over, put a square of your black ink. I just dabbed around the square with my foam brush and then filled in the remaining area with my additional paint.

Repeat the steps now using your Neutral Grey and going over the crosshatched lines in black.

I wanted rustic looking squares for my DIY wrapping paper and so I wasn’t worried about getting lines straight. If you want lines straighter, use a painters tape and a thicker base paper and you should be just fine. 

What kind of paper do I need to make my own custom wrapping paper?

You don’t need anything special to make your own wrapping paper. I love using the kraft mailing paper that costs maybe $4 each. Add any stamps or marker to the paper and you have your own custom wrapping paper.

I used this white postal paper and there is no sheen to it. It’s thin enough that it’ll crease well and thick enough so that you won’t see what’s inside. 

Did you also know you can make stamps with your Cricut?

True story, folks. Your Cricut can cut stamp material. You’ll need to use the Cricut Knife Blade if you’re cutting the thick orange rubber but Brother makes a stamp material that you can cut with the Cricut Explore models.

See how easy it is to make your own holiday wrapping paper using Deco Art Americana acrylic paints?! I did this on my dining table and had two going at the same time with about 30 minutes dedicated to drying. I’m definitely using this on meaningful gifts and not my kids’ because they don’t appreciate stuff like this. Head to your local craft store and pick up all these supplies and begin making this today!

DIY Custom Printed Napkins with your Cricut EasyPress 2

September 19, 2018

Did you know that you can make your very own custom printed napkins at home using the Cricut EasyPress 2? I got a chance to sample the 6×7″ EasyPress 2 and I can’t say enough good things about it.

This past August, Cricut held an event called Mountain Make-a-Thon and it was so much fun to just be with other creative people making creative things with our Cricut. At the Cricut Mountain Make-A-Thon, they announced they were coming out with a new and improved version of their original EasyPress. This time the EasyPress 2 comes in 3 different sizes, 6×7″, 9×9″, and 12×10″.

This smaller EasyPress 2 makes it my third so I guess you can say that I’ve got some EasyPress experience. I love the small size and it’s perfect for making your own custom printed napkins. Create your own custom printed napkins at home and at a fraction of the cost.

Absolutely, you can! You’re going to want your setting to be around 250°F and press for around 10-15 seconds. Because these were napkins, I was able to use the new EasyPress Mat that is designed for the 6X7″ model. If I was using cardstock, I would want my EasyPress 2 and Mat to be larger than my paper so I don’t make any dents in my paper project.

It’s really simple. You’re going to want to go into Design Space and create a file and be sure that it is sized to fit onto your napkin. Load your Everyday Iron-On into your Cricut machine and don’t forget to reverse your image!

Cricut has reformulated their old Iron-On Lite. The Everyday Iron-On is something that I noticed a huge difference in quality when I compared it to the Iron-On Lite. It releases easier from the carrier sheet and it gives you a better result. It also comes with the StrongBond Guarantee. Which means that if you use the Everyday Iron-On as instructed and you’re not satisfied with the results, they’ll replace it for free.

This part is probably the easiest of this whole thing. You’re going to want to weed your image and leave what you want to press on to your custom printed napkins on the carrier sheet.

Preheat your EasyPress 2 to 250ºF. The new EasyPress 2 heats up a lot faster than the original and it can now go up to 400ºF. Keeping your EasyPress 2 on the Safety Base is also important so that other items can remain protected.

Place your napkin on to the EasyPress Mat. Place your image on to your napkins and then press for 10-15 seconds. Remove your Everyday Iron-On while your image is still hot. Some HTV is a cold peel process so be sure to read all the manufacturers instructions.

Cut a Wooden Cake Topper with your Cricut Maker

Using your Knife Blade on the Cricut Maker is a game-changer. Learn how easy it is to create a wooden cake topper out of basswood below. Make your own DIY cake topper by learning how to cut wood with your Cricut. #cricutmaker #cricut #cricutmadeThis post contains affiliate links, thank you for your support.

First of all, this princess party turned out better than I could have imagined and it was all made easier with my Cricut Maker. Learn how to cut wood with your Cricut Maker and what wood is best to use when using your Cricut Knife Blade.

Supplies for Princess Cake Topper

What kind of wood can I cut with the Cricut Knife Blade?

You can cut any wood that is 2.6mm thick. I recommend using basswood that is 1/16″ or 3/32″ wide. If you cut balsa wood the passes are not as many with the knife blade but you have a very fragile piece of wood. The best wood for your Cricut cake topper would be something sturdy.

What wood should I use for a wooden Cricut DIY cake topper?

I would 100% use basswood. It will hold up far better than balsa wood. It gives you a sturdy wooden cake topper that can be reused if you store it properly. You can also layer the basswood and make it thicker and sturdy.

What adhesive should I use with my wooden Cricut DIY cake topper?

I really like Aileens Wood Glue to layer the basswood together. You can use binder clips or even quilting binding clips to press it together while it dries. Or even easier, use a heavy book. The only thing that would concern me there is maybe glue can be pressed out and can adhere your wooden cake topper to the book.

For this particular DIY cake topper, I used my Xyron Creative Station and it worked well. It is not sealed on top of the paper so you’re more prone to grease spots if you do it this way.

Make your own DIY cake topper by learning how to cut wood with your Cricut. #cricutmaker #cricut #cricutmadeCan I cut intricate images with the Cricut Knife Blade?

The recommended smallest area you should cut is about the size of a pencil eraser and don’t go thinner than the width of a pencil. I have tried to cut really intricate settings and it either split the wood or would break as I was removing it from the mat.

Should I remove small inner images as I cut with my Cricut Knife Blade?

If you remove the small areas that are lifting as you cut your images, it will throw the cut out of sync. It will begin to cut areas a bit off of the actual cut line because it doesn’t have a surface holding it in-place like before. Some of the smaller intricate pieces will pop up as your cutting but I would only recommend removing it if it’s getting in the way of the blade and stopping the cut.

Make your own DIY cake topper by learning how to cut wood with your Cricut. #cricutmaker #cricut #cricutmadeHow can I make my homemade DIY cake topper food safe?

Many sealants are only labeled food-safe after going through a rigorous FDA approval. I would recommend using Mod Podge because it is non-toxic but it is not declared food-safe. Most craft supplies are not food safe. But since you don’t actually want it to get on your food, I’d cover the stakes of your cake topper with some cling film after you’ve applied your Mod Podge.

If you don’t want to seal it, go ahead. Just stick the wood straight into the cake and call it good. I would only recommend sealing it if you painted or stained it and planned to reuse it. Make your own DIY cake topper by learning how to cut wood with your Cricut. #cricutmaker #cricut #cricutmade

New Years Photo Booth Props with your Cricut Maker

New Years Eve is always a celebration. Learn how to make these New Years photo booth props with your Cricut. Thank you to Cricut for sponsoring this post. Head to the bottom of the post to win your very own Cricut Maker!New Years Photo Booth DIY with Cricut

Photo booths are a must have at a party with a lot of guests. Not only is it time that they’re spending with you, it’s time that you don’t have to spend thinking of what to occupy them with. Photo booth props are easily made with your Cricut Maker or your Cricut Explore.New Years Photo Booth DIY with Cricut

Supplies

Remember that you don’t have to cut everyone of these shapes if you don’t want. All you have to do is click on the eyeball that is next to the shape and it’ll disapear, or just delete it. I don’t want you paying for a shape that you’ll never use. Or buy the Cricut Access program and get over 30,000 shapes available to you.New Years Photo Booth DIY with CricutI’ve used the subscription services when I had my Silhouette and now that I use Cricut. I’ve gotten a better deal out of Cricut. I’ve been able to find a lot of shapes that I’ve been able to manipulate and give me the look that I want. It’s a great addition and only $10 a month for something that you’d get a lot of use out of.New Years Photo Booth DIY with CricutI used the standard grip mat and chose the intricate cut setting for Cricut cardstock. If I am using any cardstock thicker than the 80 lb. weight, I’ll usually just hit go again and it’ll give me 4 swipes of the blade. This will insure that you don’t have any tears when lifting your paper from the mat. For the glitter cardstock, do the intricate cut but have it pass through 4 times. When choosing intricate cut it’ll pass through twice for each press of the go button.New Years Photo Booth DIY with CricutOnce all your shapes are cut, just assemble them according to the image. I always like to separate my image cuts into piles so that I don’t get any pieces missed. My favorite adhesive for cardstock is this one by Tombow. It dries quick and it’s also great for 3-D projects.New Years Photo Booth DIY with CricutI let all the New Years photo booth props dry overnight and then I adhere the skewer to the back. I just use hot glue for this part because it’s the best and most durable for photo booth props. Once all your sticks are adhered you’re ready to go.New Years Photo Booth DIY with CricutI like to have these in a jar just to the side of the booth. In the past I’ve used lots of different photo backdrops but my favorite thing to use is this sequin fabric. It pops and is perfect for ringing in the New Year.

I love the Make It Now feature in Cricut’s Design Space. It is such a saving grace when I’m having bouts of creativity-loss. When you buy a machine through Cricut, they gift you with exclusive access to certain Make It Now projects. When they released the new Cricut Maker, they included 50 free projects to get you started. The project I have chosen is the Bridesmaid Invitation and the bachelorette Party Kisses and Diamonds straw and donut toppers.Use the Cricut Maker free projects to create a Bachelorette PartyThese invitations are the perfect way to ask your best girlfriends to be a bridesmaid and they straw and donut toppers are the perfect accent to a bachelorette party.Use the Cricut Maker free projects to create a Bachelorette Party

Supplies

Use the Cricut Maker free projects to create a Bachelorette PartyBegin with printing your invitation on your printer. I use a 60lb cardstock from Michaels and it’s perfect for my HP Printer. Anything too thick will not pull through. Once you have your file printed, place it on your mat and load it in the Cricut Maker. It will read the registration marks and begin cutting and scoring. Unload your mat.Use the Cricut Maker free projects to create a Bachelorette PartyLoad your black pen into the Cricut Maker (this was included) and your regular cardstock and cut your envelope, small card and your Bride Tribe symbol. You can use black cardstock or vinyl as well but the pen is easier for me. I did color in the edges to fill in the writing.Use the Cricut Maker free projects to create a Bachelorette PartyAdd your glittered cardstock to the mat and cut the envelope insert, invitation back and small card.

You’ll then print off your tattoo paper images and add that to the mat. The sensors on the Cricut Maker are better than the Explore so these will cut. Place them into your small insert for the card as a special surprise for your friends.Use the Cricut Maker free projects to create a Bachelorette PartyTo assemble these, add your larger pink glitter square to the inside of the envelope. Next fold in your edges and place a small amount of adhesive to the sides of the envelope and place the end on the adhesive. The printed invitation will now be placed on the smaller glitter cardstock so that the color will peak through the holes your Cricut Maker created. Place some adhesive on the small squares and adhere them together. Place your tattoo inserts behind the square and adhere it to the invitation.Use the Cricut Maker free projects to create a Bachelorette PartyFor the straw and donut toppers, cut your white background first, then the standard cardstock and last, the pink glitter cardstock for the lips. Adhere your diamond tops to the bottoms and place them in your donuts. For the lips, there are two slits cut in it and you just thread your straw through there.Use the Cricut Maker free projects to create a Bachelorette PartyWant to check out the other 49 FREE projects included with your Cricut Maker?!
