Good morning! I’m continuing on today with my DIY Christmas gifts series and today I’m sharing how to make some super easy coasters using my Cricut Maker 3.
Infusible Ink Coaster Tutorial
Cut Your Design
If you want to just make a basic coaster where you are covering the entire square like I did then you can use my Basic Square Coasters project file in Design Space. I have this file set to make each coaster with a different transfer sheet but if you want to make them all the same or from 2 transfer sheets only then click on the squares and change the color so that Design Space will see them as being the same material. Click Make it.
We are just doing a basic design shape that covers the entire coaster here but if you are doing a design where direction matters (like words) then be absolutely sure to mirror the image.
Make sure you load your ink transfer sheet onto the mat with the liner side down. Once everything is cut then unload the mat and remove the pieces of transfer sheet that are not part of your design.
Transfer the Ink
Set your Easy Press 2 to 400 degrees and 60 seconds. Put a piece of cardstock over your Easy Press Mat to protect it from any ink transfer. Place the design you cut out face-down on the coaster with the clear liner on top. Place the coaster on top of the cardstock.
Cover the coaster with the butcher paper that is included in the box with the infusible ink transfer sheets. Press it with the Easy Press 2 but don’t put any additional pressure onto the Easy Press 2, just let it sit on top of the coaster.
When it is done slowly lift the Easy Press 2 off, being careful not to move anything in the little coaster stack. The coaster is going to be super hot so let it cool completely then slowly peel off the butcher paper and liner from the transfer tape. And you’re done!
