DIY Iridescent Rainbow Stationery

This fun die cut stationery suite captured my desire to infuse the entire design with iridescent details and a rainbow of pastel colors!

MATERIALS – 
Pearl Paper
Watercolor Background – I found a free version here!
Modge Podge
Craft Paint Brush

TUTORIAL –
Load your stationery lettering into the Cricut Design Space – I created outlines for my invitation, escort cards, coasters, and menus so that my Cricut would cut out the lettering and body of my stationery suite.

Set the cut dial to Cardstock, and cut out the outline and lettering for your stationery pieces.

Use weeding tool to remove the cut out lettering and remove the stationery designs from your cutting mat.

Print out your watercolor background to size – I used my Canon PIXMA Crafting Printer.

Trim the background to size and position the die cut design over the watercolor background.

Carefully brush Modge Podge over the back of the cut out cardstock, making sure give the entire back a light coating, without it creeping through the cut out letters. Place it over the background and use the Scraper tool to smooth it down, then weight with a heavy book until the glue sets. Tada! You’ve got an iridescent shimmer paper with swirling colors peeking through the cut out letters.

DIY I Found my Unicorn Banner

The perfect backdrop to this fun and fabulous party – the champagne glitter banner bears a sparkly unicorn cut out and letters that proudly proclaim – I Found My Unicorn!

MATERIALS –
Glitter Cardstock
Glitter Gift Wrap
Glue Dots

TUTORIAL –
Load your lettering and unicorn cut out into the Cricut Design Space. Cut them out of the Glitter Cardstock – I used iridescent white for mine!

Carefully remove the letters with the tweezer tool and position on your roll of Glitter Gift Wrap. Once they are all in place, flip the letters over one by one and place Glue Dots on the back to anchor.

Place the Glue Dots side down on your paper and gently run the scraper over to adhere them to the glitter background.

Do the same with your unicorn graphic, making sure to put a Glue Dots around the entire perimeter of the cut out and through the center to make sure that it sticks down fully. Voila! Hang the banner behind your dessert table or bar for a gorgeous statement piece!

DIY Gold Gem Cocktail Stirrers
These gold foil gems are the best way to toast the bride-to-be in style! Metallic straws add sparkle to any cocktail, but adding metallic die cut diamonds are the perfect way to dress up your bar in style!
MATERIALS – 
TUTORIAL –
For this one,  I created two design files – one for the gem back, and one for the outline of the gem cut. Load them separately into Cricut Design Space and copy the designs for as many straws as you would like to create.
I cut the gem back out of Pearl Paper to keep my iridescent theme going, and the gem outline in Gold Adhesive Foil.
Separate out the gem backs and keep them separate in your craft space. Once you have cut the gem outlines out of foil, use a square of Transfer Tape and the scraper tool to adhere the delicate outlines to the tape. Gently peel off the outline on the tape and position it over the gem back.
Once the outline is in place, use the scraper to smooth the adhesive foil over the cardstock. Peel away the tape, and your gem is complete!
Once the gems are done, use Glue Dots to secure them to the Metallic Straws for an adorable cocktail stirrer!

DIY UNICORN HORN CAKE TOPPER

Last but not least is the pièce de résistance, the unicorn horn cake topper! These dainty toppers are the perfect finishing touch to any dessert bar and could not be easier to make!

 

MATERIALS –
Pearl Paper in Cream and Sunshine
Bamboo Skewers
Glue Dots
Modge Podge
Craft Paint Brush

TUTORIAL –
Load the horn and ear templates into Cricut Design Space. I wanted to create a shimmery two-tone look to my cake topper, so I created the ear background and the horn foreground in Cream, and the ear foreground and horn background in Sunshine.

Run each color paper through the Cricut under the cardstock setting and remove the individual pieces from your cutting mat

Lay out the horn and ear templates –  cream on gold for the horn and gold on cream for the ears.

Use Glue Dots to position the pieces over each other and the scraper to secure them.

Once the topper is assembled, brush a bamboo skewer with Modge Podge and center in the back of the horn and each ear. Once the glue has tried, they are ready to insert into your cake!
