Expressions Vinyl sent me some great vinyl to try out (and something great for YOU TOO!). 😀 Today I used their white iron-on (heat transfer) vinyl to create this fun bag for Halloween night! You can make one too!
Here’s what I used:
You’ll need heat transfer vinyl and an iron for sure! I used the Mini Monster’s Cricut cartridge for everything. I bought the bag in a set of 3 at Hobby Lobby. Did you know they have an online store too? They do! Ok, I know you see that mat says Pazzles. Well, I don’t own a Pazzles machine, but I was curious if the Cricut could use their mats too. The answer? Yes AND no. I had to cut it down to make it fit, but it works just like a regular Cricut mat. Frankly, that was a rather boring experiment. LOL!
Here I am cutting the iron on vinyl. You have to cut it with the shiny side down AND use the flip button. I teach you all about using heat transfer/iron-on vinyl (and lots of other vinyl too) in my Cricut Vinylology DVD.
AH HA! He’s all cut out and weeded. He’s a bit sticky from the mat, but he’s just fine and ready for some heat. 😉 He was cut at 8 1/2″ and is from page 48 in Mini Monsters. When I’m just doing vinyl projects for myself, I only use an Exacto knife for weeding. I used to work in a vinyl sign shop that’s what I did there. 😉
I’m using a Teflon sheet to cover the vinyl so I can iron it. You need to put something over the vinyl before ironing directly on it.
I hope you like it!
READY FOR THE TREAT?
