cricut® infusible ink™ halloween icon coasters

Wow your friends with these vibrant Halloween Icon Coasters! Made with Cricut® Infusible Ink™, this new technology results in permanent and professional transfers, the coasters are easy to make with your Cricut® machine.
Step 1

First, click here for the link to go directly to the design in Cricut® Design Space™.

Step 2

Size each design as you would like it to appear on your coasters, if desired.

Step 3

Click ‘Make It’ in the upper right corner of your screen.

Step 4

In your preview screen, check ‘Mirror’ in the left panel for each mat, to reverse your image.
TIP: This step isn’t not necessary if you are cutting a simple shape where direction doesn’t matter. However, if you are cutting a design with words or a shape where direction matters, be sure to “Mirror” your image.

Step 5

Now, click ‘Continue’ in the bottom right corner of your screen and choose the material for your first layer.

Step 6
Place the Infusible Ink™ material, ink-side up, onto your cutting mat. Load the mat into your Cricut® machine, then press the blinking Cricut® icon to start cutting.
TIP: Use the orange-to-brown ombré ink transfer sheet included with the leopard print for the orange pumpkin and cat cheeks in design. Adjust the design on your preview screen so it cuts from the section of the ink transfer sheet you like the best for your pumpkin.
Step 7

Once your machine is done cutting, use scissors to cut your design from the transfer sheet. Next, 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.
TIP: Weeding is very easy Infusible Ink™ material! You can bend the material and the pieces will lift. Weeding can pretty much be done with your hands.

Step 8

Piece the pieces together to assemble each design.
TIP: For example, peel the black eyes and mouth from the sticky carrier paper and place within the orange pumpkin. Do this for each icon.

Step 9

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. 

Step 10

Place a piece of cardstock onto your EasyPress™ mat and lay your design onto your coaster, print-side down; then use some heat resistant tape to hold it in place.
TIP: The cardstock protects your EasyPress™ mat from any excess ink. If you get any ink on your mat, it will transfer onto your next project when heated.

Step 11
Fold a piece of butcher paper twice so there are four layers and place over the copy paper (with your design).
Step 12

Carefully place your EasyPress™ over your design. Hold in place with gentle pressure and press the timer button.
TIP: Be careful to keep the EasyPress™ very still on top of your design. Shifting the design in anyway can cause unfavorable results, such as “shadowing”.

Step 13

After 300 seconds of heat, carefully remove your EasyPress™. Again, try not to move your design. Let it cool for about 15 minutes or so and then remove the copy paper from the top of your coaster.
TIP: Remove the copy paper in one quick action rather than slowly removing as you would iron-on material.

Project Note: The use of multi-purpose household cleaners is not necessary. To clean, warm water and glass cleaner will do the job and will avoid streaks. Do not use steel wool, colored cleansing agents or scrubbing pads.
