This is not a drill.

July is National Ice Cream Month. Govern yourselves accordingly…which clearly means: It’s time to craft your own ice cream social party! Right?!

I’m inviting you to the Damask Love ice cream social in hopes of giving you some inspiration for your own party. Each element of my party has been crafted on the Cricut Explore, which means you can replicate this party for your own friends and family! Follow along as I tour you through each DIY project that makes this ice cream social way better than the one’s you attended in grade school.

HOW TO MAKE AN ICE CREAM SOCIAL INVITATION

Any respectable party needs an invitation, so let me show you the one I created for this event.

Use THIS Cricut Design Space Canvas to make your own Ice Cream Invitation Card

All of the cutting and writing on this invitation was done with the Cricut Explore!  I added “sprinkles” to the cone with paint and Q-tips.

HOW TO MAKE AN ICE CREAM CONE STAND

Since you’ll want to serve plenty of ice cream at your party, I figured it’d be cool to have a place to put your cones so guests can quickly grab their favorite flavor. I was able to create my own ice cream cone stand with the Cricut Explore!

  1. This is incredible! Perfect and so cheap to make for birthdays! I adore that scallop border. I actually think I might make something similar for my daughters first birthday!!! 🙂
