Summer is almost here, and that makes me think of Icees, sno-cones, and other cold treats to help you stay cool in the heat. Two of my kids have summer birthdays, so I’m always looking for craft supplies to use to create summer themed papercrafts. The new summer collection from Maker’s Movement has lots of cool designs (pun intended!). I am a big coffee drinker, so I immediately went for the coffee die set, which also works for this project!

Icee Birthday Card Supplies

I used my Crossover II die cutting machine to cut the cup portion of the set using red and aqua paper. Cut the aqua cup into four strips by first cutting it in half, then cutting each half into two.

I made the label and printed it onto white cardstock. Then I cut out the circles with the text.

To make the drink glitter, I placed red transparent glitter vinyl onto the clear acetate sheets. Then I die cut the swirly drink from the red glittery plastic sheet.

I die cut the topper from the clear acetate sheets, too. I cut one straw from the clear sheet, and two more from the red cardstock.

I used my Xyron Creative Station Lite with permanent adhesive to hold it all together. Make sure you get the straw in place before you stick the cup portion down! I assembled the cup first, then added the label. The straw goes through the plastic lid and holds it in place, so you don’t have have to worry about glue showing through the plastic.

Have fun crafting and creating icee birthday cards this summer!
