After a cold winter and a busy school year, I’m counting down the days until school is out for the summer more than my kids are! We have several fun cook-outs planned, but during the summer we frequently indulge in laid-back, spontaneous gatherings with family and friends. Nothing’s better than warm weather, friends, and a few good snacks!
When entertaining, especially with spur-of-the-moment gatherings, I’ve found it useful to have simple party items around the house that may be easily used for any occasion. While it may be tempting to load up on party decorations that are themed (like when they are on sale at the end of the season), these items sometimes take up lots of storage room in comparison with how much they are actually used. With simple decor that doesn’t include specific seasons or holiday patterns, these items will get more use in the long run.
This DIY Snack Station sign is a great piece to have around. With parties big or small, everyone loves snacks, and this sign lets them know just where to locate them!

DIY Snack Station Sign Supplies:
- Cricut machine
- StandardGrip Cutting mat
- Iron-on vinyl
- EasyPress or Home iron
- EasyPress mat
- Rectangle wood board
- Measuring tape
Steps to Make:
Measure the wood board to determine the area where the design will be placed. Mine was 4″ by 6″.
Open up the design software that accompanied your electronic die cutting machine. Use your favorite font to write the words “Snack Station.”
Send the design to the cutting machine, cutting the iron-on vinyl on the cutting mat. Be sure to place the iron-on vinyl face down.
Weed the iron-on vinyl to remove all the unnecessary vinyl, leaving only the design on the liner.
Place the liner and design on the wood piece. Press firmly to adhere.
Warm the iron. Place it on the design with firm pressure for 40 seconds.
Warm peel the liner to reveal the iron-on design attached to the wood piece.
Serve on a table with your favorite snacks!

We have definitely had these Ritz and love them! What a cute sign! I wish I could do something like this. I think I need to get myself this machine. There’s so many amazing things that come out of it.

Making that sign is such a great idea and so much fun for a party. I have not tried those crackers yet but they seem so light and crispy
Thanks for hosting this giveaway! This is such a super cute sign. I can’t wait to make one for my home.
Love those crackers. Actually, love them way too much. Cute ideas for a snack area.
I love this. I wish I had a cricut so I could make all of these things.
These look delicious! I’m going to have to pick these up as snacks for our family RV trip soon. I like how Ritz is branching out and making different things.
What a cool snack station! I think my family would be happy to make one!

Oh what a great idea, there are a lot of bdays coming up, I think this sign would be a perfect addition to the decorations.
I love these Ritz products. I haven’t tried either of these ones yet though. Didn’t even know they had those flavors yet. I’ll make sure to look for them next time I’m out shopping.
