I’ve created a few files for the different images for these bags and you can find the Design Space link at the bottom of the post. For Iron-On Vinyl, the main thing you want to remember is to mirror your image. That is where I make the most mistakes when I’m creating anything with Iron-On.
Cut out all your shapes using your Cricut or if you’re really adventurous, find an image online and cut it by hand. You’ll next want to peel away any of the negative space on your image. Leave what you want your image to look like on the carrier sheet for easy application. If you by chance accidentally peel away what you wanted you can try to either stick it back on the carrier sheet or you could just place it down on your material and then place the carrier sheet over it before pressing it.Next, warm up your iron or EasyPress. I have had a lot of issues with peeling when I’ve just used an iron in the past. It doesn’t quite do the trick and that is because it has an uneven heating surface. The EasyPress has by far been one of the best tools I’ve used and its small which makes storage a breeze. For the Lite Iron-On I used the press at 305° for 30 seconds. For the Glitter Iron-On I used it at 325° for 30 seconds. You’ll then want to lay down a towel that is folded in half. Lay your surface over the towel and use the EasyPress to warm up your canvas bags. Lay your image over the warm surface and place the EasyPress over it. Hold down the EasyPress with some pressure and press the green Cricut button to begin the countdown.Once your image has been pressed, go ahead and peel off the carrier sheet slowly. If you have any pieces that may have not stuck, just press them again. Voila! You’re done and your kiddos are going to love their own personalizes DIY Halloween Trick or Treat Bags.
