CRICUT EasyPress Mat, 12” 12”
CRICUT Weeder Tool

1.CLICK HERE for this project design CRICUT Design Space.
2.Click ‘Make It’ in the upper right corner of your screen.
3.In your preview screen, check ‘Mirror’ in the left panel to reverse your image.
4.Now click ‘Continue’ in the bottom right corner of your screen and choose your material. For this project, choose ‘Iron-On’ and the last layer, change it to ‘Iron-On’.
TIP:Always make sure to select the most accurate material available for your CRICUT projects, so your machine knows how deep to cut into your material.
5.Place the iron-on material onto your cutting mat, shiny-side down. Load the mat into your CRICUT machine, then press the blinking CRICUT icon to start cutting.
6.Once your machine is done cutting, use scissors to cut your design from the iron-on material roll. Next, use your weeder tool to remove all the excess material around and inside your design. You’ll be left with just the reversed design on the clear plastic carrier sheets, which are slightly sticky.
7.Preheat your EasyPress to the appropriate temperature for your material and, if needed, adjust the timer.
TIP: See the Quick Reference Guide, included with your EasyPress, for temperature and times, or CLICK HERE for an interactive guide. You can also use an iron to press your material. Just follow the instructions included in the iron-on material packaging.
8.Place your shirt on top of your EasyPress mat and then preheat the fabric for 5 seconds.
9.Place the carrier sheet with your design, so it is sticky-side down, then place it onto your shirt. You should be able to see the layer through the carrier sheet, just as it will appear once ironed.
10.Place your EasyPress on top of the design, apply the appropriate pressure for your material, and press the time button. Once it beeps, flip over your shirt and press for another 15 seconds. If your material is a warm peel, you may go ahead and peel off the carrier sheet. If it is a cool peel, let it cool completely before removing the carrier sheet.
