DIY Bachelorette Trucker Hats and Toasting Flutes with Cricut

Did you guys see my Drunk in Love Bachelorette Party last week?
I loved working with Cricut on this fun project! And today I am going to show you how to make two of these projects yourself. I got my Cricut Explore Air 2 machine a few weeks ago, and I am now fully obsessed with the capability of this machine. I have been applying iron-on material and vinyl to everything!

First up, these Drunk In Love trucker hats! 

I love the idea of giving your guests a fun take-home favor that they can use over and over. For my bachelorette party, I created my theme around a "Drunk in Love" Beyonce inspiration. 
The first thing I did was pick up some simple black trucker-style hats with the taller tops.
I knew I wanted to apply gold foil iron-on to the fronts of the hats for the bride and her bridesmaids to wear when they go out to celebrate. 

I designed my hat decal in Cricut Design Space. I measured the hats with a measuring tape to make sure that my decal was going to be the right size. With all iron-on materials, you need to mirror-image the design before you cut it.  


Once you have your design cut and weeded, it's time for the fun party! Applying the decal to the hat! Simply use a hot iron and some sort of ironing pad/cloth to make sure that the heat of the iron doesn't melt the transfer material. 







My second project was these fun personalized toasting glasses. No more looking for your glass when you have your name on it!


I bought some simple black and gold toasting flutes and elevated them using this FUN iridescent vinyl.  I want to put this vinyl on all the things!

First, measure out the size of your glass. Make sure that your names are not too long in Cricut Design Space. 


Once you get them cut and weeded, you will need to apply the transfer tape. 

Use your Cricut scraper to make sure that the transfer tape is sticking evenly to the vinyl. 
Once you have the transfer tape applied, cut the individual names out to apply them directly to the glass. 

Once you have it applied to your glass, remove the transfer tape. 

And you're all set for a fabulous bachelorette party! 

(I told you I loved that iridescent vinyl! I applied it right to my machine top!)
