FLOWER GIRL GIFT BASKET
This may be one of the most fun Gift Ideas that I’ve ever put together you guys! My friends little sister is getting married and wanted to ask her daughter to be the flower girl. But, she wanted to make it special! We came up with the fun idea of putting together a Spa Themed Invitation Gift Basket.
All little girls love to feel BIG and SPECIAL and I feel like we totally achieved that with this cute gift idea! Today I’m going to share with you what we put in the basket and also how to customize a few of the items!
WILL YOU BE MY FLOWER GIRL?
- Silk Robe
- Black Sleep Mask
- Cricut Maker
- Standard Cutting Mat
- EasyPress 2 (I used the 6″x7″ EP2)
- EasyPress Mat (I used the 8″x10″ Mat)
- Everyday Iron On
- Foil Iron On
- Black Pen
- Hand Warmers (also made with the Cricut Maker — full tutorial here)
- Rose Petals
- Bubble Bath or Bath Bombs
- Chocolate Candies
- Flower Girl Gift Basket Design Space File
Start by opening the Flower Girl Gift Basket Design Space File! At this time you’ll want to resize any of the designs to fit the robe and eye mask that you have!
Once you have done that, then hit ‘Make It’ in the top right hand corner.
Review the mats and make sure and mirror the two mats that are going to be Iron On. You always want to mirror the images when cutting Iron On!
Then hit ‘Continue’ in the bottom right hand corner.
Select your machine from the drop down menu and set the material of your first mat. Make sure that you change the material you’ll be cutting as you load each new mat. When it’s time to draw and cut the question tag, you’ll also need to load a black marker or pen into Clamp A! Design Space will prompt you as well!
Make sure on the Iron On mats that you load it ‘Shiny/Plastic Sheet’ down!
Once all the layers are done, it’s time to apply the Iron On! Start by weeding the extra Iron On out from the design.
For better placement, I decided to cut the eyes apart and place them individually.
I used my EasyPress 2 to apply the Iron On! If you’ve never used the EasyPress 2, then you’ll for sure want to check out my posts Everything You Need to Know About the EasyPress 2 and Cricut EasyPress 2 Questions Answered! Also, if you’re newer to using Iron On, my post Tips for Using Iron On Vinyl may be helpful!
EASYPRESS HEAT SETTINGS
When using the EasyPress 2, always reference Cricut’s EasyPress Interactive Heat Settings Guide. There you reference the type of Iron On you’re using, the type of material you’re applying it to and then it will tell you what temperature to use! It takes all the guess work out of it for you!
Repeat for the robe as well!
Once you’re done, then it’s time to gather all the Spa supplies!
In the gift basket I was helping assemble, I added the following items:
- Eye Mask
- Rose Petals (I attached the question tag to them)
- Hand Warmers
- Bubble Bath
- and Chocolates!
I have a great step-by-step tutorial on how to make these cute little Hand Warmers with the Cricut Maker here! They’re super easy and the perfect starter project if you’ve never used the Rotary Blade. You may also want to reference this post on Everything You Need to Know about the Rotary Blade!
