As a Mama and party planner extraordinaire, I like to think of myself as a magic maker… and fabulous little things like this are the cherry on top of my mama magic. My kiddos got VERY cheap paper play glasses for Christmas and as soon as I saw them I thought, man, I could totally cut those with my Cricut using WAY better paper. So I did. I designed the file to be BLANK, that’s right, BLANK so that you can weld ANY font, saying, or design on top of these glasses yourself. Just in case you’ve never done any significant file editing in Design Space, I recorded a video that I’m sharing below of just how easy it is. Including a fantastic tip about how to contour certain design elements to eliminate them from a cut. I hope you have as much fun with this file as I have, and as I plan to over this next year. Oh, it’s your birthday? Custom glasses for you! Oh it’s 4th of July, custom glasses all around… and don’t even get me started on Halloween 🤩

Any Occasion

Personalizing some fun paper glasses is a great idea for any occasion… especially weddings, and definitely Bachelorette Parties! They are terrific for all holidays of course, anyones birthday, or possibly even a fun addition to a homeschool lesson. We just started learning about Dinosaurs in our homeschool and I’ll be making the girls some Dino glasses next!

Prepare To Cut

If you have a Cricut Maker you’ll want to use the double scoring wheel, if you have a Cricut Explore, you’ll need to use the scoring stylus.

Score + Cut

You’ll start with scoring and then the Cricut will prompt you to add the Fine Point Blade.

Hot Glue

Gently fold the corners of the ear pieces and slip into the glasses frame, then add very small dots of hot glue to secure.

Fun For All

OMG, this one is too much. Full disclosure, I told her I’d give her a piece of candy if she didn’t ruin her special glasses right away so during our very quick shoot she just kept saying, “I’m getting a treat!” LOL. She thought they were super fun but wanted to pull them apart right away, of course.
