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

One of my favorite episodes of FRIENDS is when Phoebe tells Ross that Rachel is his lobster. “Come on, you guys. It’s a known fact that lobsters fall in love and mate for life. You know what? You can actually see old lobster couples walkin’ around their tank, you know, holding claws like…” I’m not a big hearts and flowers Valentine’s Day person so this is such a perfect phrase for a Valentine’s Day tee and quick party banner! These come together super quickly with the Cricut Explore Air 2 and my project links you can find below.

Easy DIY “You’re My Lobster” Party Banner

To make this 3 strand mini banner just go to my project on the Cricut Design Space here & click “Make it”. Use any color cardstock you want and set the Cricut Explore Air 2 to “cardstock” or, if using the maker find cardstock in the materials when prompted. Cut out all your pieces following the prompts in design space.

I glued the banner pieces with letters to black triangles to emphasize the letters.

String the pieces on a piece of twine (make sure you leave extra room to work with when hanging, you can always trim it up).

Hang and enjoy!

Easy DIY “You’re My Lobster” Valentine’s Day Tee

To make the tee you’ll need this project, some Iron-On Vinyl, an EasyPress, EasyPress Mat, and your Cricut machine. Make sure to turn mirror on before cutting.

Once cut, weed your design and iron onto the shirt of your choice using the heat settings found from Cricut here. A super simple and quick Valentine’s Day shirt for your favorite FRIENDS fan.
