I have always been a HUGE fan of Cricut and when they came out with the Infusible Ink line at JOANN stores, I knew it was something I wanted to try!
What is infusible ink? Well, Cricut came up with these ink infused transfer sheets that are a way to have professional quality printed projects in a few simple steps. The infusible ink transfer sheets are applied using heat with the Cricut EasyPress and guess what? You can use the ink infused sheets with your Cricut cutting machine but if you don’t have one…you can still use them!
Wait…whaaaaaat? Yep! I decided to take on this project to make some decorative coasters using the Cricut Infusible Ink with the following supplies I grabbed at my local JOANN store. Here is what you’ll need:
Cricut Ink Transfer Sheets – These sheets come in a variety of colors and patterns
So how do these magical sheets work? This is what you will need to do in this order…take the EasyPress Mat add a piece of white cardstock. Next, place your cut Cricut Ink Transfer Sheet color|pattern side up. Then, place the coaster – shiny side down onto the ink sheet and layer with provided butcher paper. Now it’s time for the EasyPress, 300 degrees for 240 seconds on top. Make sure you place the Easypress straight down and lift straight up when the time is up. Now remember…this is going to be HOT…REALLY HOT, so please be super careful when handling the coaster. Once you’re coaster has had a chance to cool, flip it over and take a peep and the amazing creation! I can’t believe how bold & crisp the colors and crisp patterns are.
I wanted to keep it simple, so I used 2 different colors/pattern to create a color block design like this.
You guys!!! The possibilities are endless! There are so many colors and patterns available at JOANN…plus there are t-shirts, totes and so many more ways to get create with Cricut Infusible Ink Products! Make sure us with your projects on Instagram
