In this blog, we will explain to you the top 5 best Cricut mermaid invitation ideas you can make in 2022. Nowadays, there are a lot of creative ideas you can make with your Cricut mermaid. We have our top 5 ideas, which are very easy to make, and we have also included our bonus idea at the bottom of the blog. So let us start with the blog and explain to you what all types of cards you can make with a mermaid theme.   

Idea 1: Mermaid Banner

A birthday banner is all you need to make a great party decoration, as it makes an amazing set for photos or food. And depending upon how you differentiate letters on the string, it can fill up more or less room as required.

  • Design Space set   
  • String
  • 13-inch paper trimmer
  • Weeding hook
  • Cricut Cardstock in Navy
  • Smart Paper Sticker Cardstock in Pastel
  • Cricut Maker 3


We have decided to make a banner saying, “Happy Day.” for two major reasons, which are as follows:

  • The first reason is it can be reused for any special occasion other than just making birthday cards.
  • And another reason being the project can be made with just a single pack of Cricut Smart Paper Sticker Cardstock.

The Cricut Explore 3, or Maker 3, has the ability to cut smart Cardstock without a mat. Make sure to check the directional arrows at the backside of the paper liner. This will ensure the paper fits perfectly and is going through the machine.

For using the Cricut 13-inch paper trimmer, cut off the extra cardstock, as it will be used for making the cupcake. As the cardstock is sticky from the back, the pieces will be treated a bit like vinyl, with some wedding afterward. After that, flip the paper and peel the backing out from the cardstock so it cannot be bent.

After that, the process is super simple; you must assemble the banner with glue. There are holes already to cut in your banner pieces so that the thread string can be hung on them. If you find any difficulty in getting the string inside, we recommend you use a tapestry needle or some pointed needle.

Pro Tip: We recommend you open the Cricut Design Space when doing the assembling of your project so that the layering of the colors is down in the right order.

Idea 2: Mermaid Cupcakes toppers

Mermaid Cupcake toppers are small decorations that can be stuck into the cupcakes and accordingly themed for your party. The standard size of the cupcake toppers is about 2 inches.


Materials Required For Making CupCake

  • Design Space Image
  • Hot glue
  • Toothpicks
  • White Cardstock
  • Cricut Smart Paper Sticker Cardstock
  • Cricut Maker

Idea 3: Making A Cupcake Topper Bag

We also tried making cupcake topper packaging without a clear plastic bag. To prevent the toothpicks from piercing holes at the bottom of the bag, we folded pieces of cardstock equally. After that, the end of each toothpick rests in the fold, and your bag stays protected.

We slightly made larger cardstock for the upper part of the bag. For holding, two staples are attached at the top of the mag with the help of adhesive vinyl for writing “Cupcake Toppers”.

Idea 4: Making Mermaid Stickers

Each of the sticker images is designed out of the Cricut Design Space already, ready to print

Materials You Require To Make Mermaid Stickers

  • Cricut Design Space
  • Glossy Sticker Paper
  • Cricut Maker 3

The crafted file will be cut into sets of stickers on one piece. For the glass sheets, we recommend you change the printing settings of your paper type to “Glass.” 

After completing the printing process, send your file to your Cricut machine to perform the cutting operation. After that, remove the print box and cut the material in two halves to make two sticker sheets.

Idea 5: Making Mermaid Notebook Cover

Making a mermaid notebook cover is the easiest project to make in terms of the materials requirements. Making a notebook like the below image can be a great gift for many parties.

Making Mermaid Notebook Supplies

  • Cricut Design Space
  • Canvas cover notebook
  • EasyPress Mini
  • Glitter Iron-On Aqua
  • Cricut Maker 3

The first and foremost important thing is to find a notebook that can get hot on the cover. We ordered the notebook from the Oriental Trading Company. You will see that the cover has a bit of fabric/ fuzzy texture, so the iron-on performs great compared to the adhesive. After that, cut the tube mermaid tail from the iron on the vinyl and remove away the extra vinyl.     

After that, remove the carrier sheet and then combine it with a different collection of colorful pens, or you can even use mermaid pens.

Bonus Idea: Make Mermaid Birthday Card

To complete the mermaid birthday set, we made a card with rounded edges at the bottom of the card that signifies waves. The card says, “Happy Birthday.”

Materials Required For making Birthday Card

  • Transfer Tape
  • Weeding hook
  • Whispering Blue
  • Permanent Vinyl
  • White Cardstock
  • Cricut Maker 3 

Every decoration on the birthday card is adhesive vinyl. We loved making the card lettering as it was the easiest and most enjoyable task.
