10 Ways to Use Your Cricut Maker to Plan Your Next Party

This week we’ve shared a couple of new party ideas that you can make with your Cricut Maker–the DIY Watermelon Banner using the Cricut Scoring Wheel and the DIY Cake Stand using the Cricut Knife Blade.

Since we love using our Cricut Maker to create party ideas, we decided to share the 10 BEST ways you can use your Cricut Maker to plan your next party by making Cricut birthday party decorations.

Seriously, the Cricut Maker makes it SO easy to create custom DIY party decorations that are professional looking and Pinterest-worthy! Between the DIY Cricut Birthday Decor ideas we’ve designed and the awesome projects we’ve found from our blogger friends, you’ll be crafting your next party in no time!

The Cricut Maker is Cricut’s newest machine and is the ultimate in cutting performance and versatility. With the Maker you are able to cut 100s of materials, from fine crepe paper to leather and chipboard–with that kind of versatility, the projects you can create are endless!

One of the things that we love about the Cricut Maker is the Adaptive Tool System, allowing Cricut to introduce tools like the Rotary Blade, Knife Blade and Scoring Wheel, as well as expand into other tools in the future.

Using the easy-to-learn Cricut Design Space, you can create Make It Now projects to have a birthday party decoration ready to craft, or you can use the program to design your own custom birthday decorations!

10 Ways you can use your Cricut Maker to make birthday decorations for your next party!

  1. My new favorite project, I designed and created my very own DIY Cake Stand using Cricut Chipboard and the Cricut Knife Blade–find out how to make yours in this DIY tutorial post.

The Cricut Knife Blade is a total game changer. It can cut thicker materials up to 2.4mm, including Cricut Chipboard. The Knife Blade cut the cake stand out of Cricut Chipboard with ease, and in just a few minutes. Being able to design custom cake stands is such a great way to customize a dessert table!

2. I also created a DIY Watermelon Banner using the new Scoring Wheel, which created razor-sharp creases in the card stock so I didn’t have to fight with folding the rosettes! How cute are they? See this post for the DIY Watermelon Banner tutorial.

And, it’s made from Cricut Chipboard, so it’s really stable, even with the small details.
