personalized cricut® gift basket

Give the gift of personalization with this basket full of Cricut® accessories and supplies. But first, personalize it with the recipient’s name!
Step 1

First, open Cricut® Design Space™ and click ‘New Project’.

Step 2

Click on the ‘Text’ icon in the left side of your screen. Type the word you want to use; then choose your font. Size the word to fit your surface.

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 to reverse your image.

Step 5

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

Step 6

Place the iron-on material, shiny-side down, onto your cutting mat. Load the mat into your Cricut® machine, then press the blinking Cricut® icon to start cutting.

Step 7

Once your machine is done cutting, use scissors to cut your design from the 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™ 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

Remove the liner from your Easter basket and place it on top of your EasyPress™ mat; then preheat the fabric for 5 seconds.

Step 10

Place the carrier sheet with your design, so it’s sticky-side down, and place it onto the liner. You should be able to see the layer through the carrier sheet, just as it will appear once ironed.

Step 11

Place your EasyPress™ on top of the design, apply the appropriate pressure for your material, and press the time button. Once it beeps, flip over the liner and press for another 15 seconds. If your material is a warm peel, you may go ahead and peel off the carrier sheet. If it is a cool peel, let it cool completely before removing the carrier sheet.

Step 12

Fit the liner back to your Easter basket.

Step 13
Fill the basket with Cricut® accessories and supplies!
