Cricut Wedding Project Ideas | Wedding Place Name Project

Cricut + wedding = Cricut wedding!

 

If you have a Cricut machine, you can easily make birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, and other special occasions much more memorable.

 

Recently, I had the option of doing just that at a family wedding. I created around 70 custom place names out of gold glitter cardstock, which were placed on the dinner plates.

One of the best things about having a Cricut is the opportunity to create things that are special and personalized for friends and family (along with yourself, of course)!

 

I got so much positive feedback about these names – a lot of people wanting to know how I made them! They really made everyone at the wedding reception feel personally welcomed to the celebration.

Custom Wedding Place Names

 

For this Cricut wedding project I used my Cricut Explore Air 2 (though I’ve just got a Cricut Maker 😍 for future projects). The Maker is definitely the best Cricut machine, but the Air 2 is right up there.

To make these place names I used thick gold glitter cardstock from my local craft store.

 

I used the font wisdom script (free to download when I used it) to write out all the names, and I used the weld tool in Design Space to make each name cut out as one image (not separate letters).

I set the dial to ‘custom’ on my Air 2, browsed through the materials and selected ‘glitter cardstock’.

 

Cardstock can vary in thickness from brand to brand, so it’s best to always do a test cut with a new material, before cutting out your whole project. And especially if the material you’re using is expensive!

My test cut revealed some small cuts into my mat, so I opted to change the default pressure to less. I did another test cut, and with less pressure my cardstock cut perfectly the second time.

 

I used my Cricut weeder to weed out the insides of the letters, and then my spatula tool to gently lift them away from the mat. Done!

 

Custom Wedding Table Numbers

 

I also made some table numbers to go with the place names, using the same font, wisdom script. I made these a bit larger than the names, so they could be easily read from across the room.

Unlike the names, the table numbers had glitter cardstock on both sides because they were placed into vases and needed to look good from both sides.

 

I cut one mat of the table numbers the normal way around, and then mirrored the project and cut out the mat again. Then I glued both sides of the cardstock together. The cardstock I used was quite thick, so two layers made it strong enough to hold up well on the skewers.

I also painted the skewers gold, but the gold paint didn’t show up that great on the skewers. I placed the table numbers into the vases of flowers on the tables. They looked great!

These place names and table numbers were a special and personalized touch to this wedding reception. But there are so many other things you could make with your Cricut too…
