Ah, the wedding night! For many, it's a chance to unwind, gossip, and… well, you know! For those of you hoping to make your wedding night a little more special, I suggest being sure to pack a separate, smaller tote with all the wedding night “necessities” (either on its own or tucked into your luggage) so that when the time comes, you can just grab it and get down to business. To help you out, I've created this fun “Married AF” tote and filled it with some bits I think make for a fun wedding night! Seriously, there's everything you need for your wedding night with this Married AF tote DIY (plus, a bonus wedding night DIY at the end of the post)!
- Cricut Explore Air
- FREE “Married AF” Graphic
- Cricut Glitter Iron-on
- Cricut Mat
- Cricut Cutter
- Cricut Weeding Tool
- Bottled Water
- Mini Champagne
- Paper Straws
Step One: Download the free “Married AF” graphic to your computer onto your computer and then upload it to Cricut Design Space.
Step Two: Select the Cut option in the Layers tab on the top right.
Step Three: Turn the knob on your Cricut Explore Air to “Iron-On”. Big Fat Tip: While just using the “Iron-On” selection on the knob worked for me, others recommend that you choose Custom and then select iron-on glitter within Design Space.
Step Four: Cut the Glitter Iron-On to the necessary size and read the direction on the packaging CAREFULLY to figure out how to apply it to the Cricut Mat properly. It's really, really important to apply the material fabric-side down on your mat.
Step Six: Watch the Cricut Explore Air cut out the “Married AF” graphic – it's SO AWESOME!
Step Eight: Place the “Married AF” graphic on the tote (remember that since you had it cut out as a mirror image, that it will now be placed on the tote with the graphic the right way). Use an iron to gently press the “Married AF” graphic. Peel off the plastic once you're done ironing.
Step Nine: Fill your tote with some snacks, water, mini champagne, and whatever other fun bits you want for the wedding night.
Step Ten: Enjoy!
Isn't it so cool?!?! I just love how easy the Cricut Explore Air makes DIYing the wedding of your dreams because they believe that “It’s Your Story, Make It Personal”. I mean, could you have created that “Married AF” graphic as an iron-on in that short of time and with no hassle? Not me. As someone who made their $5,000 wedding look more expensive then it was, I know that the key to making a budget wedding feel amazing is all in the personalization. And after the wedding? Imagine what you can do with it around your house! Make some chalkboard labels for your pantry, some vinyl house numbers, or cute magnets of your wedding photos for the fridge! I have to say, the first time I used my Cricut Explore Air, I was so surprised by the wide variety of products that worked with it. What will you make with yours?
And to make things better – right now, Cricut is hosting a whole month of giveaways for engaged couples. Winners will be announced on Cricut’s Instagram.
