    Materials for DIY Save the Dates

    Adhesive Magnetic Sheets – There are tons of different sized adhesive magnetic sheets to choose from on Amazon.

    Copy Paper – Any copy paper works

    Printer – I use a color inkjet printer

    Scissors or cutting machine – I use a Cricut. Check out my article on which Cricut machine is best suited for beginners if you are interested in getting one.

    Transparent Watercolor PNGs – Check out my Watercolors Texture Kit which includes 45 different watercolor texture samples.

    Making the Save the Date Template

    It is super easy to make these designs in any editor. A few examples that I like to use include Microsoft word, Powerpoint, Google Slides….

    I’m going to provide a few screenshots of how to make the edits in Cricut Design Space but the transparent PNGs have the backgrounds cut out and can be used in the same way with all other editors.

    upload image in cricut

    Upload the transparent PNG as you would any other file. Mark the image as complex to preserve the details.

    The background has already been removed, so there is no need to select and erase.

    Save the image as a Save as a Print then Cut Image.

    Adding Text to the Save the Date Template

    how to slice Cricut design space

    After uploading the transparent PNG, resize it to your liking.

    Then create the text overlay. Then select all items and “slice”.

    Create the background shape and any additional text you would like to add outside of the watercolor graphic.

    Select all items and “Flatten”.

    Then just print the design.

    Adding the Design to the Magnetic Sheet

    My advice here is to stick the whole sheet of paper onto the magnetic sheet before cutting.

    Then continue with cutting on your machine or by hand.

    Additional Tips for Cutting Magnetic Sheets with the Cricut

    Use the Deep Cut Blade if you have it.

    Also, consider placing your whole design on the watercolor piece. It looks really cool to have the cutout be just the splatter dot.

    That’s it! Super easy.
