I’m going to show you how to create your own table numbers using your Cricut Explore and your Cuttlebug. I’ve never used the Cuttlebug until this project and now I’m in love! I love being able to add texture to my projects and unless you buy embossed paper, it’s a little hard. Using embossing folders from the Cuttlebug is the easiest way to add texture to your projects.
For this project, I cut out my table numbers using my Cricut Explore. I’ve included the cut file below. Once you’ve cut your numbers, place them inside the embossing folder and run through your Cuttlebug. You can choose to do words or actual numbers but I like that I can give more of an illusion that I worked harder than I actually did and use the actual words. You can use glitter cardstock to make your table numbers too or even use wood. I love my Cricut Explore because of the many materials I can cut with it. I also love the Cuttlebug because you can emboss or die cut those same materials just as easily.

- Pearl Paper
- Wooden Skewers
- Hot Glue
When using the Cuttlebug, you want to be sure to use the correct folders and plates. When you emboss, you’ll use the B plates and the A plate. Sandwich your embossing folder in between the two B plates and place it on the A plate. Place it in your Cuttlebug and use the handle to crank it through.
Both my images were more than 7″ long so I had to get creative. I matched up the polka dots before I ran it through again so that I could have a clean embossing. The more complex the image, the harder it will be to match but it can be done so don’t let size hold you back.Place some hot glue on the back of your numbers and add the skewer so that they’re even heights. The heavier the cardstock, the less skewers you’ll need but you want it to hold up all night. Secure it again with a little bit more glue on the back.
Place it in your centerpiece and you’re done. I decorated this board with some of the flowers I cut for our Twin Baby Shower we threw a few months ago. Happy Wedding!
