How to Use Cricut Infusible Ink Transfer Sheets

How would you like to be able to easily switch out your throw pillows for each season? You can do that using Cricut's new blank pillow covers. I used the Infusible Ink transfer sheets to make a Summer pillowcase, that can be changed out easily without buying new throw pillows that you have to store.

Supplies needed for Infusible Ink Pillowcases

Cricut Maker or other cutting machine

Design Space software on mobile device or computer

Cricut StandardGrip Machine Mat

Cricut EasyPress

Cricut EasyPress Mat

Cricut Pillow Cover blank (compatible with Infusible Ink)

Infusible Ink Transfer Sheet

White Cardstock, 12" x 12" 

Butcher paper (comes in the Infusible Ink package)

Lint roller

Heat Resistant Tape

Scissors


DESIGN:

In the Design Space software, select your image. I used this simple flower image.


CUT:

Place Infusible Ink Transfer Sheet onto StandardGrip mat, liner side down and be sure to Mirror your design. Select Infusible Ink Transfer Sheet from the list of materials. If using a Cricut Explore machine, turn Smart Set Dial to Custom first. Load Mat into machine and press the blinking "C" to GO



WEED DESIGN:

Remove cut design from mat and trim away unused area of sheet. Gently roll cut design so cut lines separate and are more visible. “Cracking” the cut this way makes it easier to remove excess paper from in and around your design. Use your fingers to carefully remove negative pieces from in and around your design, leaving design on liner.


PREP BLANK:

Preheat your EasyPress according to the Cricut Heat Transfer Guide. For this project, set Cricut EasyPress to 385°F

Place Pillow Cover blank on top of Cricut EasyPress Mat. Position sheet of cardstock inside cover to protect your mat and project. Use a fresh adhesive to lint-roll the entire surface, making sure you remove all debris. Cover blank with a piece of butcher paper larger than the EasyPress. Preheat application area to remove moisture and wrinkles for 15 seconds, using light pressure. Remove butcher paper and let Pillow Cover cool completely.


APPLY INFUSIBLE INK TRANSFER SHEET:

Place cut design face down on Pillow Cover, clear liner on top. Cover design with butcher paper larger than Cricut EasyPress heat plate. Apply your EasyPress for the required time, making sure not to move it during the application. (You can secure the design in place with Heat Resistant Tape if needed.)




When time is up, slowly lift press. Try not to move the stack, including butcher paper.  Slowly remove butcher paper and liner with design while warm.



Place your pillow insert inside the pillow case and enjoy! I am ready to make a few more for each season!
