cricut® infusible ink™ fall football coasters

Cricut® Infusible Ink™ is new technology that results in permanent and professional transfers. The easy to use material cuts beautifully with your Cricut® machine and use your Easy Press™ 2 to heat transfer! Whether you are a football parent, die-hard fan or somewhere in between, make these Fall Football Coasters and see for yourself just how vibrant the colors are when transferred!
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 brown ink transfer sheet included with the leopard print for the browns in this design. The center section is where the darkest brown is so adjust the design on your screen before cutting.

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

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 9

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 10

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

Step 11

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 12

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.
