Cricut Popsicle Invitation Step-by-Step Tutorial

Watch the full step-by-step video tutorial to learn how to make these popsicle invitations here:

YouTube video

Create a new project in Cricut Design Space and then upload the popsicle invitation SVG template and add it to your canvas. Click on your template and then select “ungroup” to ungroup your layers.

Note: You won’t be able to modify the template if you don’t first ungroup your layers!

Modify the Envelope in Cricut Design Space

Before cutting your envelope, you will need to change some of the lines to score lines. If you are not using a scoring tool, then you will delete these layers instead. And if you don’t want to use the envelope template, then just delete the envelope layers.

Select the black box on top of the envelope and change the operation from “cut” to “score”. Then, select the group with your score lines and envelope and select “attach.”

Adding Text to the Invitation

To personalize the invitation, start by adding your text using the text tool. Some items you’ll want to include are:

  • What you’re celebrating (birthday, baby shower, end of summer party, etc)
  • Date and time
  • Location
  • Any other information that guests need to know (what to bring, where they are registered, etc.)
  • RSVP info

Once your text is added, change the font to a writing font. Cricut has a few free writing fonts to choose from if you don’t have Cricut Access or you can use one of my favorite free writing fonts.

To find the writing fonts in Cricut Design Space, filter by “Writing” and if you want a free writing font, also check the “Free” box in the font drop down menu.

Once you change your text to a writing font, click on the color icon and change each text block to the color pen that you are using. It’s important to assign colors to your text so that your Cricut knows what color to write with.

If you are keeping the text “Pop on Over”, make sure to change the operation to “pen” for both layers. Then assign the color pen that you want to use for this. If you want to add your own text here, then delete the layers and add your own text.

Once all of your text is in the correct place, you’ve assigned a writing font and a pen color, then select ALL of your text layers together with the popsicle layer they are on and select “attach” to attach the pen layers to your invitation.

You are now ready to cut your project! Your Cricut will walk you through the prompts of when to add your scoring tool and each color pen. If you need help with this, then make sure to watch the video tutorial here.

How to Assemble the Envelope

To assemble the envelope, start by folding on all 4 score lines. Use your brayer (if you have one) to press each of the tab pieces down really well. You want a really good fold on the tab pieces, so your envelope lays flat.

Then add glue to your tab pieces and fold the other half of your envelope over, adhering it to both tab pieces. Use your brayer tool to press this down really well.

Fold the top of your envelope over and glue the heart piece to it.

How to Assemble the Popsicle Invitation

To assemble the popsicle, start by gluing the icing and sprinkles on. Then glue the popsicle stick to the back. If you are using an envelope to deliver your invitations, then make sure to measure the popsicle stick with the envelope so you know how far up to glue this.
