I love celebrating the Chinese New Year because its a start to new and a way to honor the old traditions. Some of my favorite Chinese New Year traditions are gifting money in red envelopes, wearing your traditional Chinese clothing and honoring your ancestors. For this Year of the Dog pennant, I cut it on my Cricut Maker and ironed it on with my EasyPress or you can use your standard home iron. To use your iron, use these tips here.
- Year of the Dog PNG File – see below
- Cricut or any electronic cutter
- Red Iron-On
- White Felt
- Design Space Pennant File
- EasyPress or Iron
- Wooden Dowel
Cut your file and be sure that your image is selected to
Set your EasyPress to 305° and allow it to warm up. Warm your surface for about 10 seconds and place your image onto your pennant. Press for 30 seconds on the front, turn it over and press for an additional 15 seconds.
When using your EasyPress, you want to press on a firm surface. I use a wooden surface with a towel folded on top. You want the towel so that you have a bit of give and the crevices of your material will be warmed and glued. If you find your EasyPress losing temperature while your pressing, it is because the surface underneath is pulling the heat. Pressing pillows are great for this purpose too.
Thread your dowel through the cut holes and then tie a ribbon on the ends to hang your Year of the Dog pennant.
