cricut® infusible ink™ love your province tote

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! Show your love for your province with this Love Your Province tote!
Step 1

First, click on the ‘Images’ icon in the left panel and search for your beloved province. Choose the image and click ‘Insert Image’.

Step 2

Click on ‘Shapes’ in the left panel and choose the heart, size to fit as you like within your province, select all and click ‘Slice’ in the bottom right panel. Delete the heart you used to slice but change the color of the sliced heart to a contrasting color.

Step 3

Size the design as you would like it to appear on your tote.

Step 4

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

Step 5

In your preview screen, check ‘Mirror’ in the left panel for each mat, to reverse your image.

Step 6

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

TIP: Be sure to pay close attention to the mat in the left corner of your preview screen to know which layer is cutting so you know which color/material to choose, especially when using multiple material types within a project.

Step 7

Place the material for the first layer onto your cutting mat and load the mat into your Cricut® machine, then press the blinking Cricut® icon to start cutting.

TIP: When working with Infusible Ink™ material, place it ink-side up onto your cutting mat but your iron-on material is to be place shiny-side down on your cutting mat.

Step 8

Once your machine is done cutting, use scissors to cut out each piece of your design from the transfer sheet(s).

Step 9

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 but use the weeder tool for the iron-on material.

Step 10

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 11

Lay your tote on top of your EasyPress™ mat and smooth it out with your hands. Now, insert a piece of cardstock inside your tote to prevent bleeding to the back as well as protect your mat from any excess ink.

TIP: Use a lint roller over the area where you want your design to remove any dust.

Step 12

Place a sheet of butcher paper (included with your transfer sheets) on top of your tote and preheat the fabric for 15 seconds to remove any moisture.

Step 13

Remove the butcher paper from the top of your tote, place your transfer ink design on your tote (ink-side down) and replace the butcher paper over your design.

TIP: When working with more than one layer, you will want to heat one layer at a time. Be sure to cover the already heated part of your design with butcher paper to prevent re-activation of the ink.

Step 14

Carefully place your EasyPress™ over your design. Hold in place with gentle pressure.

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 15

After 40 seconds of heat, carefully remove your EasyPress™. Again, try not to move your design. Let it cool for about a minute or so and then remove the backing from your tote.

TIP: You want to remove the backing from your transfer sheet in one smooth action rather than slowly removing as you would iron-on material.

Step 16

Adjust the temperature and time for your iron-on material and place within your design. Cover with your butcher paper and press.

TIP: This butcher paper is most likely no longer useable as the heat would have re-activated the ink and transferred some ink to the paper.
