Ready to squeeze the most out of this fun craft? Follow these directions to create your own Lemonade Stand.
Begin by uploading the lemonade stand SVG into Cricut Design Space. Once uploaded, resize the image to match the desired dimensions for the craft you’ve decided to make (banner, or cake topper). Once you’ve sized the stand, select the ‘LEMONADE 25¢’ words and change the Linetype to draw. Weld the letters, numbers, and cent sign and attach them to the white sign where they are overlaid.
Select ‘Make It’ in Design Space, load the first color and let your machine do the work. When it comes time for you to load the Cherry Wood Veneer, reference Paper 101 – Die Cutting for optimal cut settings on your Cricut.
Once each of the lemonade stand pieces have been cut, take one pink and white straw and cut it in half creating an angle on both tips (as pictured above). This will help the straw to fit nicely behind the overhang.
To assemble the stand, begin by taking the Cherry Wood Veneer rectangle and the smaller Mirrisparkle Desert Sand rectangle and glue this to the top of the Cherry Wood Veneer. Take the Sweet Tooth ‘LEMONADE 25¢’ sign and glue this to the Cherry Wood Veneer rectangle center. Then take the two Razzle Berry pieces and glue these to the overhang. Now take the two straws and, using a hot glue gun, attach these the back of the Cherry Wood Veneer rectangle and also to the back of the Sweet Tooth and Razzle Berry overhang. You can add finishing touches to your lemonade stand by searching the images in Cricut Design Space for lemons and a pitcher.
Your stand is now assembled, and you’re ready to squeeze the day!
