Football Friday – Flocked Iron On Vinyl Cup or Can Cozy

Cool! That’s flocked vinyl…it’s fuzzy!

 Football Friday is coming to you a day early to prepare for a blog hop post tomorrow!

You MUST FLIP images & letters when cutting iron on vinyl.  My “A” is cut at 2.5″.

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

Joy's Life Cricut Vinylology DVD

TIP: Flip images/letters when using heat transfer vinyl.  Cut with shiny side down.  Questions?  It’s all in the DVD. 😉

Those cozies aren’t sewn evenly…but they were $1 each! LOL!


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!

I use a teflon sheet to go over my heat transfer vinyl.

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.

It’s a Diet Coke can, I promise!

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!

  1. If I had a huge and very sturdy stocking, I would hope to find a Cricut Imagine in it. I would love to be able to print and cut and some of the carts for it have beautiful paper designs. If it were a bit smaller stocking, I would love to find a Scrap N Easel. If it were a regular-sized stocking, I’d love to find more Cricut carts and/or gift cards to craft stores to help support my habit. I’m feeling a little greedy with my wish list. Thanks for the great giveaway!

  2. Oh, my gosh! There are so many things on my wish list it’s not even funny! There is one Cricut cartridge I really want and that’s Art Nouveau but I haven’t even seen it in the stores yet. I would love to have the new Silhouette Cameo too and lots of new embellishments and papers. I don’t think they make a crafty stocking big enough to hold it all but I can wish, can’t I?

  3. I would LOVE to find a scrap n easel in my stocking!!!! I am sofa bound most of the day so if I could scrap while being SB would really make my world ROCK!!!! I have tried all sorts of things, set-ups to try and craft while sittin on the sofa but nothing really works. 🙁 If I do get up & craft @ the table, while having a FABULOUS time, like a child all giddy, singin, scrappin like theres no tomorrow, (or pain comin) I will pay for it w/ 2 days back on the dreaded sofa!!! I am sorry, I dont mean to dribble yuck.

With said card I would outfit my krafty korner with all your stamp sets (plus a few from some other wonderful crafters!), a Cricut Imagine is so on my list, and all the paper I could never use in a millon crafty years.

  11. So, the thing that I REALLY want to find in my stocking for Christmas this year is an iPad! 🙂 Wouldn’t it be awesome to use CCR on an iPad? I’m thinking that’s probably not going to happen, but a girl can dream! 🙂 Love your blog and your stamps, Joy!
