Last month, we were thrilled to announce that we were collaborating with Cricut, Martha Stewart, and Michaels to design DIY parties that would blow your guests away. With our gorgeous Cricut® Explore Air 2™ Special Edition Martha Stewart Bundle, we designed numerous Unicorn party supplies that LOOK like they are expensive, store-bought personalized items but actually were crafted with just a few items! Our full unicorn party (which you can see HERE) is full of the coolest Unicorn party ideas that you can make with your Cricut Explore Air 2.

The new Martha Stewart Cricut Explore Air 2 is SO pretty with the gold details and it can cut over 100 items from vinyl to all kinds of cardstock to iron-on. And it is up to 2x faster than previous Explore models.

We created all sorts of unicorn party decorations with our Martha machine (including a banner, a unicorn birthday shirt, confetti, and favors), and today we are going to share a DIY for you to make your own Unicorn birthday party plates! The DIY unicorn plates were featured on the kids’ party table, which was one of the best features of the party!


How to Make Unicorn Party Plates

Supplies needed for the DIY Unicorn Plates:

Cricut Explore Air 2 (other Cricut machines will work too!)
-Martha Stewart iridescent party plates at Michaels
Cricut Mint Vinyl
Cricut White Vinyl
Cricut Transfer Tape

To make it easy for you to create all of our DIY unicorn birthday party supplies, we have designed the unicorn plate design for your use in Cricut Design Space!  Your first step to making the DIY unicorn plates is to open the design in Design Space.


You can customize the project to accommodate the birthday age you need using the same font and layout that we have above.

We have the file set up for 4 plates, but you can easily copy and paste the groups of images to make as many as you need.

The design is currently set up for two colors of vinyl, so you can adjust those as necessary too. We used mint vinyl and white vinyl.

Once you have all of your necessary changes made, click the green “Make It” button to get ready to cut your designs.

Once all of your design pieces are cut out, you need to transfer them to the plates using Cricut Transfer Tape, starting with the bottom Unicorn vinyl layer and then the top layer with age and stars.

You can complete your table with additional Martha Stewart Celebrations party supplies, a table runner, flowers, and sweets for the guests!
