Introduction

Go ahead and tell your event designer that you'll handle the seating chart—thanks to your Explore Air 2 Cricut Martha Stewart Wedding Edition, bringing this arrow-and-string reception element to life just became an in-house job. All you'll need? Our ready-to-make kit covers most of your bases, but make sure you have white paint, painter's tape, white panel nails, scissors, a hammer, and white cord on hand, too.
