A Movie Night Gift Basket filled with personalized tumblers, popcorn buckets, and a snack tray made using a Cricut Machine! Add in a new blanket, snacks, and a new movie and it is sure to create a fun and memorable movie night with your loved ones!
Pull up the Movie Night Design Space File. The design has 3 different areas of the designs -- cup names, butter/no butter popcorn bucket words, and Snack Tray.At this time you'll want to edit any of the names/words to work for the pieces you'll be customizing.You'll also want to resize the designs to fit the cups, popcorn buckets, and snack tray you purchased.Once the design is ready to go, make sure you've got the correct machine selected in the top right-hand corner. As you can see in the screenshot, I have it set for the Cricut Explore Air 2. Then hit 'MAKE IT' in the very top right-hand corner
It will then show you a preview of the cutting mat. At this time you can rearrange or space out your designs if needed. I did spread them out a little more, so I had plenty of room around each word to cut them out with scissors.
Then let's get the Permanent Premium Vinyl on your Standard Green Mat! I love to use my Brayer to make sure the vinyl is on the mat well. You should most likely be able to fit everything on a 12x12 mat. Use any type of Permanent Premium Vinyl. Just make sure if you use any kind of textured Perm Vinyl to set your dial to custom and choose the type of Perm PremiumVinyl on the computer screenOnce that mat is ready, load it into the machine and hit the green 'CONTINUE' button in the bottom right-hand corner! It will then cut your design using the Fine Point Blade in the machine!
After it's cut, use the weeding tool to remove all the excess vinyl from around your designs.
When you're done weeding, apply transfer tape to your design carefully. Use the scraper tool to ensure that the transfer tape adheres well to the design.
Before applying the designs, make sure and clean the surfaces thoroughly and dry them well. Then pull the paper backing off the design and place your design onto the surface. When working with items like cups, popcorn buckets, and plates I like to use my fingers to push the design on good.
Then carefully remove the transfer tape from the design. Make sure the designs aren't coming up with the transfer tape. If they are, place it back down and press it down even more.
