When I started TomKat in 2008, one of the very first parties I created designs for was Kate’s Lollipop Birthday Party. I started selling those party designs all assembled and ready to go. If you remember the invitations, I cut layers into the shape of a lollipop with a circle cutter. It was nearly impossible to get the text centered and then cut it perfectly into a circle evenly around the dotted edge, not to mention physically challenging to use the circle cutter over and over again. Well, this process has completely changed thanks to the Cricut Explore cutting machine. With the Print Then Cut feature, the printable designs print with marks that the Explore reads before cutting the printed page, therefore resulting in a precise, perfect cut every time! For Kate’s most recent party, which was cotton candy themed, I used the Explore to cut the invitations into the shape of the watercolor cotton candy illustration. Create your own cotton candy invitations here on Design Space. The possibilities are endless for creating custom cut shaped invitations and party designs with the Explore. Here are a few of my faves available on Cricut Design Space…
