Playing With Cricut Infusible Ink

Have you started playing with Cricut Infusible Ink yet? Even though it has been out for awhile now, I didn’t start using it until a couple of months ago.

Cricut’s website describes Infusible Ink as “. . . an all new system of Cricut DIY products that make it possible to achieve pro-level, personalized heat transfers on T-shirts and more . . .”

Let’s make some coasters.

Step-By-Step Instructions For Making the Coasters.

First, be sure to make all four designs the same color in Design Space, so they will cut out on one transfer sheet. If you need help doing this, let me know in the comments below.

Second, place the transfer sheet on your Cricut mat, with the colored side up. A green mat is recommended.

Remember to mirror your design, which the software will remind you to do.

Third, cut your design out using the Infusible Ink setting in Design Space.

Fourth, weed your design. Wipe down the top of the coasters with the coffee filter to remove any lint or debris, and tape them to the coasters with the heat resistant tape.

Here’s Where the Fun Comes In

Using the pressing mat as the base, put the white cardstock on top of the pad. If you’re using a 6″ x 7″ Easy Press, place a coaster on the white cardstock. Then, put the butcher paper on top of the coaster. Most importantly, use the Cricut Heat Guide, which will tell you what temperature and time to use for the Infusible Ink and square coasters. In addition, if you’re using a bigger Easy Press, you can do more coasters at the same time.

Place the Easy Press on top of the coaster for the allotted amount of time. When your timer goes off, remove the press and let the coaster sit until it’s cool to the touch. Meanwhile, you can do your next coaster.

The Final Result Using Cricut Infusible Ink

The shine on these coasters doesn’t come through in this picture, but they’re absolutely gorgeous.

This design can also be found in Cricut Design Space. Just do a search for coasters.
