Movie date nights are even more special when they’re at home.  We took ours to the next level with some fun touches made on our Cricut machine including a ticket to invite your date, a popcorn box, movie night bunting, food picks, and a movie die to help you choose what genre of movie to watch.  

Movie Date Night Ticket and Decorations

I thought it would be fun to create a special movie ticket for our date night on my Cricut.  I used simple black and white card stock to create the beautiful layered ticket.  This is the perfect invitation for a special movie date night at home.

I also made some matching movie night decorations using my Cricut.  This movie themed bunting is a fun addition to the front of the coffee table, it would also be cute as a wall decoration.  After cutting it, and gluing the layers together, I used some black and white bakers twine to string it together.

The food picks also match the rest of our movie night pieces.  After cutting them out, and gluing them together, I used a glue stick to add tooth picks to the back of each one.  I used them here on our chip snack board, but they would be cute in cupcakes, or any stack you serve for movie night.

Movie Night Die

If you’ve ever struggled to choose what movie to watch this die is for you.  We added a different movie genre to each side.  Just roll the die and whatever it lands on can be your genre for the movie, helping to narrow down your choices.  This paper die is easy to make on the Cricut, using a marker with the drawing feature to add the names.  After it’s cut out, just use glue to make it into a 3D cube, all ready for rolling.

Popcorn Box

I love salty snacks and thought it would be a fun idea to create a chip snack board to enjoy during the movie night.  Since popcorn is the classic movie snack, I knew I had to include some of it on our chip snack board too.  I used my Cricut to cut out the most adorable popcorn box, and postioned it as though it were spilling out on our tray.  You can read all about how to create the chip charcuterie snack board here.  The boxes would be great just to hold regular popcorn for a movie night as well.
