Who’s ready for a refreshing, new design? As we continue to celebrate the bright, fun-filled days of summer, I thought I would share a yummy, fruit-based cut file. Use these die cut watermelons to add a summer flair to your next project.
When we were grocery shopping before 4th of July weekend, I asked my husband what fruit he would like to get. Being partial to mangos and pineapple myself, I had already started reaching for fruit of the more tropical variety. But he expressed, “It’s not 4th of July without watermelon.”
When he put it that way, I started thinking back on the Independence Day celebrations I had attended in the past, and I realized that watermelon was indeed a part of all of them. So, we did the patriotic thing and purchased a giant watermelon. (I did still grab a pineapple, though: you can never have too much fresh fruit in the summer!)
Sometimes it’s hard for me to say exactly what inspired a particular design; but, with this one, I definitely think it had something to do with eating all that watermelon over 4th of July weekend!
There are so many ways you could implement these watermelon designs! They would be perfect as part of a summer greeting card or scrapbook page. As you can see from the picture above, I love turning my die cut projects into bunting banners, and these watermelons would add a great touch to a summer cookout!
I use Adobe Illustrator for all of my designs, and a Cricut Maker to bring my creations to life. For tips on creating fun paper cuts like this one, see the FAQ section on my website. Also, be sure to check out the other summer freebies available on my blog!
Enjoy putting these fun, die cut watermelons to good use! What is your favorite fresh fruit?

These are very cute and inspiring, I love the saying “Your one in a melon” and this design goes perfectly with that saying. Thank you so much for another wonderful design.
