Creating custom party decor, to me, is one of the best parts of hosting a party! If you agree, you’re going to fall head over heels for this months Cricut project! Today we’re cutting out mini-wedding dresses and turning them into the most darling bunting banners, which would be the perfect addition to any bridal shower or bachelorette party decor. These little cuties would also make terrific gift tags for the bride-to-be!

Saying Yes To The Dress

How sweet would it be to bring this cute banner to your besties wedding dress fitting! A super fun photo-prop idea for when she actually says yes to the dress!

SUPPLIES:

  • Cricut Explore Air2, mine is mint!
  • Regular Cutting Mat
  • Cardstock in your choice of color
  • Ribbon, lace, sequins; for embellishing
  • Twine; for hanging

Upload + Personalize

  1. Download our free SVG cut file at the end of the post and upload into Cricut Design Space.
  2. In the layers panel, click to turn “off” the dresses you don’t want.
  3. Choose the amount of dresses you want to cut by using the Project Copies toggle.
  4. Then cut!

Cut Your Dresses

Add your paper to the cutting mat, select the type of paper, press GO and watch the magic happen!

Carefully Remove Your Dresses From The Mat

Add Some Lace

Embellishing these darling little dresses is totally up to you! Here I hot glued some light blue lace onto the the white dresses for a fun something blue!

These Dresses Can Be Any Color You Want

Use any color or type of cardstock to cut out these mini-dresses, including glitter cardstock!

Embellish With Some Sequins

Embellish With Some Ribbon + Bows

Knot As You Go

Using a piece of twine (because it will fit through the hanger hole) knot to add each dress to the banner. I used a ruler to make sure my spacing stayed similar.

Mini-Dresses For Days

These mini-cuties have so many uses beyond just a banner, from gift tags to greeting cards and even iron-on appliqués. So what will you use our cute files for!?!
