Football Friday is coming to you a day early to prepare for a blog hop post tomorrow AND ALSO to give you a chance to win a GREAT GIVE AWAY at the bottom of this post!
I got my Cricut Expression 2 out this morning to make a quick cup (or can) cozy using flocked (fuzzy) heat transfer/iron on vinyl. I bought mine at Expressions Vinyl. I’m using the Stone Script Cricut cartridge so I can make an “A” that looks close to the University of Alabama’s “A”. See, I’m a Bama fan but my brother and his wife are both Auburn grads. They’ll be here for Thanksgiving so I have to slide in as many Alabama things as I can during their stay. I plan to smoothly hand this cozy with a canned drink in it to Liz (my SIL) during the Alabama/Auburn game. Hee hee hee.
Learn about using vinyl with your Cricut in my DVD
TIP: Flip images/letters when using heat transfer vinyl. Cut with shiny side down. Questions? It’s all in the DVD. 😉
I used the Cricut Expession 2, Stone Script Cricut Cartridge, cheap iron from WalMart, cheap tiny ironing board from WalMart, $1 can cozies that I got at Michael’s during the summer. I hope you can find some good cheap cozies around, if not you can probably make some that are even better!
Adhering flocked heat transfer/iron on vinyl takes a longer ironing time AND more pressure than regular iron on vinyl. You can do it, just be patient.
The stone script “A” has a bit of a rough edge look to it. It’s supposed to look like that. 😉 The flocked vinyl has a nice feel to it. If you haven’t tried it, you should!
Have a great early Football Friday!

Cute idea for a stocking stuffer! I’d love to find Cricut cartridges, and the new E2 in my Christmas stocking (it would be an x-large stocking)! Thanks for the opportunity to win!
