DIY Infusible Ink Tropical Coasters Tutorial
Cricut makes creating simple and I love their Infusible ink blanks and sheets. You can grab the design for these coasters in Design Space and get to it. Start by cutting out this tropical design on the four different sheets of infusible ink that comes in the packages listed above.
I separated each coaster design onto a different mat so that I only cut one coaster out of each color. Once each of the designs are cut, then grab your weeding tools and start to remove the negative areas.
Once that is done, heat up your EasyPress Mini and apply the design to your coaster. You may need to use some heat resistant tape to keep the design in place. Place your coaster on your EasyPress Mat, lay the butcher paper that comes with your Infusible ink over and press for 4 minutes!
Yes, that is the recommended time and as you press, make sure to move the press around the entire coaster to get the design to imprint. Before removing the entire design, peel up a corner to see if the design has completely transferred (this is why the heat resistant tape is great, it holds the design in place). If it has not, just press again.
Let the coaster cool before removing the infusible ink sheet. Repeat the process for the other 3 coasters and viola! These DIY infusible ink tropical coasters are the perfect bright and cheery vibe for your space.
