Create these fun paper party supplies for a Minnie Mouse fan! I used my Cricut Explore to make a Minnie Mouse party hat, banner and purse party favors perfect for a Minnie Mouse celebration!
Oh, Minnie Mouse! I never thought much about you until having kids and now I’m surrounded by Minnie Mouse apparel and toys and I constantly have the Minnie Mouse theme song – “Welcome to my New Bow-tique” – stuck in my head! Luckily, I don’t mind Minnie Mouse! Polka-dots, pink and red, plus a bow business – I’m a fan! ;) For my daughter’s birthday this year, I created some fun DIY Minnie Mouse party supplies using my Cricut cutting machine. They helped make her day extra special and I thought I’d share them with you today!
I used the basic mouse ears found in Cricut Design Space and used it to create the party hat and banner. There are so many fun Minnie mouse cut files in Design Space!
Minnie Mouse Paper Party Hat
I love making a special paper party hat for my kids on their birthday. It’s fun to DIY them because you can customize them for any party theme. I made this Minnie Mouse party hat following my Paper Party Hat tutorial. I used a piece of Minnie Mouse scrapbook paper with red and white polka dots I found at Joann Fabrics. Since it was on the thin side, I layered it over a thicker piece of black cardstock. I added the mouse ears and bow to the front that I cut with my Cricut and then topped the whole thing with a cute white pom pom!
Minnie Mouse Party Banner
The next party project I made was a DIY banner! It was perfect to hang in our dining room for cake and ice cream. I made it using the same mouse ears and bow I used for the hat. I alternated between black paper and the red and white polka-dot paper. To string the banner, I punched holes in the ears and ran white yarn through the banner. I taped the white yarn in place on the back of each mouse ear so they would be evenly spaced.
Minnie Mouse Purse Party Favors
The paper purses were made using my Paper Purse pattern. I love the large red and white polka-dot bows on the front! These purses are one of my all-time favorite crafts to make. They are the perfect size to small treats and goodies! They also hold two bottles of nail polish perfectly on either side of the latch. I have seen some cute Minnie Mouse nail polishes that would be so fun for these.
I have made these a bunch of times as party favors, but for this occasion I made a couple for my daughter who had fun playing with them. :)
These are the cute little Minnie Mouse decorations I threw together using my Cricut Explore! Honestly, just making the banner, party hat and a couple cute party favors I put on the table as decoration, really made her birthday dinner feel extra special. :)
The Minnie Mouse scrapbook paper I used came from Joann Fabrics. I didn’t find that exact paper online to link to but I’m linking to some really cute paper pads that would be really fun to use making paper party decorations!
