cricut® infusible ink™ place card party favor coaster

Cricut® Infusible Ink™ is new technology that results in permanent and professional transfers. Make this unique Place Card Party Favor Coaster to show your guess where to sit as well as a personalize memory from your wedding!
Step 1

Project Note: The use of multi-purpose household cleaners are not necessary. Warm water and glass cleaner will do the job and will avoid streaks. Do not use steel wool, colored cleansing agents or scrubbing pads. Avoid getting the cork wet.

First, click ‘New Project’ and design your party favor.

TIP: For the words you want to have the Cricut® draw with markers, be sure to change the linetype to “Draw”. 

Step 2

Size each design as you would like it to appear on your coasters. 

Step 3

Click ‘Make It’ in the upper right corner of your screen. 

Step 4

In your preview screen, check ‘Mirror’ in the left panel for each mat, to reverse your image.

TIP: This step isn’t not necessary if you are cutting a simple shape where direction doesn’t matter. However, if you are cutting a design with words or a shape where direction matters, be sure to “Mirror” your image. 

Step 5

Now, click ‘Continue’ in the bottom right corner of your screen and choose the material for your first layer. 

Step 6

Place a sheet of printer paper onto your cutting mat. Load the mat into your Cricut® machine and add the Infusible Ink™ pen in clamp A; then press the blinking Cricut® icon to start drawing. 

Step 7

Once your machine is done, unload your mat and carefully remove the paper. Also, you can remove the pen. 

Step 8

Place the Infusible Ink™ material, ink side up, onto your cutting mat. Load the mat into your Cricut® machine and press the blinking Cricut® icon to start cutting. 

Step 9

Once your machine is done cutting, use scissors to cut your design from the transfer sheet. Next, remove all the excess material around and inside your design. You’ll be left with just the reversed design on the clear plastic carrier sheets, which are slightly sticky.

TIP: Weeding is very easy Infusible Ink™ material! You can bend the material and the pieces will lift. Weeding can pretty much be done with your hands. 

Step 10

Preheat your EasyPress™ to the appropriate temperature for your material and, if needed, adjust the timer.

TIP: See the Quick Reference Guide, included with your EasyPress™, for temperature and times or click here for an interactive guide.  

Step 11

Place a piece of cardstock onto your EasyPress™ mat and then your coaster on top of the cardstock. Arrange paper with the first layer of your design, ink-side down, onto your coaster. Press the sticky carrier sheet down and use heat resistant tape to secure.

TIP: The cardstock protects your EasyPress™ mat from any excess ink. If you get any ink on your mat, it will transfer onto your next project when heated. 

Step 12

Fold the butcher paper sheet twice so there are four layers and place over your design. 

Step 13

Carefully place your EasyPress™ over your design. Hold in place with gentle pressure.

TIP: Be careful to keep the EasyPress™ very still on top of your design. Shifting the design in anyway can cause unfavorable results, such as “shadowing”. 

Step 14

After 300 seconds of heat, carefully remove your EasyPress™. Again, try not to move your design. Let it cool for about 15 minutes or so and then remove the backing from your butcher paper and backing from the top of your coaster.

TIP: You want to remove the backing from your coaster in one quick action rather than slowly removing as you would iron-on material. 

Step 15
Repeat Steps 11-14 for the remaining layers of your design.
