Who’s ready for a fun 4th of July holiday weekend? Today I’m sharing a fun July 4th Party Kit that you can use in your backyard BBQs or take it on the go!

You really can’t go wrong with sparklers and s’mores!

Let’s talk about the print and cut feature on Cricut. I absolutely LOVE IT! However, with all things technical, I needed to get my bearings with it first. I’ll give you my tips on how I made these stars for the July 4th Party Kit!
- Cricut Explore
- Cricut Sticker Paper
- My Printer
- This printable (you can load this image into Cricut Design software and resize as needed)
It really is truly easy to just print from your computer then feed it into the Cricut. Your Cricut will scan for the print lines and will know where to cut! I loaded the image above into the software and sized it just right for my treat bags. I then set them to print and cut on the software and had fun sticker stars in minutes!
Tips for using the Cricut Print and Cut feature:
- Make sure you are feeding your paper in the right way as this will vary for different printers.
- Do a test page before printing.
- Let your printer know it should print highest quality and that it is a photo. For some reason, it wouldn’t print correctly without me marking this on my HP.
- Be sure that the bleed checkbox is marked before you print as well as the custom dial being set to sticker paper on the Cricut and in the software.
- The sticker paper is heavy, be sure to use a Cricut mat with good adhesive on it.
