DIY Calligraphy Placecards with Martha Stewart and Cricut

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Cricut. The opinions and text are all mine.

In our fourth installment of our series of DIY projects with Martha Stewart and Cricut, I present to you the easiest way to achieve a DIY calligraphy look for your place cards. DIY calligraphy place cards is one of the most popular wedding craft projects. Why? Hiring a calligrapher is expensive, as it should be, because hand calligraphy is so so hard. I tried to teach myself once, I even took a class…and me, the girl who can probably make any kind of craft project, couldn’t get my head around it. I was awful at it.

Take my advice here: use your Cricut Explore Air 2 Martha Stewart Edition to “write” all of your “calligraphy” place cards for you. Plus, make them even cooled by having the calligraphy written onto die cut tropical leaf motifs. Here’s how you do it:

I used the Martha Stewart white cardstock and the Martha Stewart Cricut pen set. I created a file in Design Space with a cut out palm leaf. Then I choose a writing font from the font list to type the names in. The Cricut uses a pen to write the names on the paper and then cuts out the leaf. That’s it! No classes to take, no crafty egos bruised when you realize real calligraphy is hard AF, and you’ve got diy calligraphed place cards in no time.
