"it always seems impossible" graduation cap

Graduation is a big accomplishment so why not shout it to the world in your own way!
Step 1

First, click here for the design in Cricut® Design Space™.

Step 2

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

Step 3

Click ‘Make It’ in the upper right corner of your screen.
TIP: Delete, or hide in the preview screen, the translated design you do not wish to cut.

Step 4

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

Step 5

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

Step 6

Place the iron-on material for the first mat layer, shiny-side down, onto your cutting mat. Load the mat into your Cricut® machine, then press the blinking Cricut® icon to start cutting.
TIP: Refer to the left panel in your preview screen to which mat layer to load and when to cut each layer of the design.

Step 7

Use scissors to cut the design from 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.

Step 8

Preheat your EasyPress Mini™ or iron 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.

Step 9

Place the carrier sheet, so it’s sticky-side down, onto your cap. You should be able to see the layer through the carrier sheet, just as it will appear once ironed.
TIP: Press each layer, one at a time.

Step 10

Place your EasyPress Mini™ on top of the design, apply the appropriate pressure for your material and iron it in place. Since this material is the warm peel type, you may go ahead and peel off the carrier sheet.

Step 11

Lay out the flowers on the cap as desired, then hot glue them in place.
