We already mentioned last week how big we think geode is going to be in the wedding world this year so we thought it would be fun to bring a little amethyst into our free printables with these easy geode drink stirrers! I love how pretty and colourful they came out, can you imagine how striking these would look filling the glasses on a table? They’re ridiculously easy to create too, I made 12 drink stirrers in about 20 minutes so it’s totally manageable to make a bunch of these in an afternoon.

YOU WILL NEED:

Free Printable Geode Drink Stirrers // A Printer // White Card // A Gold Gel Pen // BBQ Skewers // All Purpose Glue //

STEP 1:

Print your geode shapes out onto white card, making sure you select a high quality print setting. There are 24 geode shapes per A4 piece in shades of pink, purple and teal so print off as many sheets as you need.

STEP 2:

Using your gold gel pen go over the areas of the shape that are a light cream colour so that they’re replaced with a beautiful shiny gold instead! This just adds that extra element to your drink stirrers and make them reflect the light.

DIY Floral Flower Veil Colourful Fun Tutorial Wedding Faux Flowers-4

While we’ve tried a few different DIY’s with faux florals here at BB, a trend we are seeing more of is the flower adorned wedding veil. We have seen pretty ones covered in real flowers but we really wanted to see if we could create a faux flower veil with the same ‘WOW’ effect? As it turned out it was one of the easiest DIY’s we have ever tried.

Step 1:

Start by taking a selection of large and small flowers and attach in a cluster around the comb, using your glue gun. This will ensure the comb stays fully hidden when the veil is being worn.

Step 2:

Using larger flowers, starting at the top, glue the flowers at random intervals around the veil working your way down to about half way.

Written by , Posted in Cricut Explore, How To..., Valentine's Day

I know what you’re thinking…an ice bucket DIY in January? Has she gone nuts? Well let me tell you, no I have not. Cold drinks are required all year round and they’re even better when served in the prettiest ice bucket you’ve ever seen!

diy-emoji-heart-ice-bucket-valentines-day-drinks-cooler-cute-pink-tutorial_-19 diy-emoji-heart-ice-bucket-valentines-day-drinks-cooler-cute-pink-tutorial_-9

You can easily make this emoji heart ice bucket just in time for Valentines Day to make sure that you’re serving your drinks in style and the best news is it takes less than an hour to create!

YOU WILL NEED:

A pink ice bucket (or a normal ice bucket, I just spray painted this one with Rustoleum’s candy pink) // Dark pink vinyl // yellow vinyl // transfer tape // A cricut explore (or you can cut the stencil’s out free hand if you don’t have one, they just won’t be as perfect) // Emoji Heart Template 1 // Emoji Heart Template 2 //

STEP 1:

Upload the heart templates to the Cricut Design Space and resize to the size you want, I made my heart 2.2 inches wide to fit my ice bucket and then I adjusted the size of the yellow sparkles to match. You’ll then want to duplicate the shapes as many times as you require to cover your ice bucket. I ended up having 21 hearts in total.

STEP 2:

Start by placing your pink vinyl onto your sticky mat and load into the machine, set your Cricit to cut vinyl and hit that go button!

STEP 3:

Once your machine has finished cutting out all of the pink hearts, repeat step two with your yellow vinyl and allow it to cut out all of the sparkles.
