Popsicle Garland

It’s raining garlands hallelujah (or we’re really sorry, depending how you feel about garlands!) We whipped this garland up for a BBQ we had all together this past week and Cal can vouch for it’s authenticity as he tried to lick one. They couldn’t be easier, and definitely doable without a Cricut, but with the Explore this only takes a few minutes! Here’s how you’ll do it: Gather 12×12 craft foam sheets in multiple colors (we used 7 here repeating them each twice) The project page has both bitten and whole popsicles so as you make each color you’ll have … Read more

Ice Cream Cone Garland

We have an awesome craft idea from the world’s biggest sweetheart, Kelly of Cloudy Day Gray! We first told you about Kelly and the story of her Mighty Matilda here. So when she asked us to contribute a simple craft idea to brighten the rooms of families with children in pediatric intensive care, we jumped at the idea. These ice cream banners were brought to NYC this month along with totes, stencils, and window clings. Kelly was also able to sell the banners in an effort to raise money and awareness during the 2014 NYC Life Liver Walk. Go Kelly! “Forget about National … Read more

Galaxy Garland

It’s Cricut project time! For us as Explore™ users, our favorite thing to make is simple decor for our homes and special occasions. We love how much it brightens up a party or holiday and our boys take notice that today must be extra special, too. We made this Galaxy Garland for our craft lounge at Alt Summit last year, but love it as a little 3D decor for a nursery or play room! Here’s how you’ll do it: This Galaxy Suite has images like rockets, stars, planets and more and to give it an extra spacy feel we used … Read more
