Use Cricut Holographic Iron On to customize your favorite set of pajamas and keep yourself nice and warm no matter the season.
Holographic Iron On is a little bit different than their normal iron on. Excessive heat can alter the color of your vinyl. So, it’s really important (always – but especially here) to follow Cricut’s instructions for the iron on. I’ll break it down for you here. Plus you’ll get this fun cut file. I guess what I’m trying to say is you’ve come to the right place.
What You Need for Your Holographic Iron On Pajamas
Cut your File
Open up your cut file and make sure it’s the size you’d like. I have it sized to the above linked pajamas!
Next you will click ‘Make It’. This is where you will toggle to ‘Mirror for Iron On’. This is an important step. Do not skip this step. I have skipped this step and it is a very big bummer.
Set your dial on your ‘Custom’. This will pull up a screen on your computer after your Cricut has been connected that will prompt you to choose your custom material. You will search for ‘Holographic Iron On’ and select it.
Load your mat on your standard grip mat with the holographic side facing down. Now start cutting!
After your file is cut you will start weeding your project. I like to cut out the cut portion of the vinyl so as not to waste the edges that weren’t cut. Use your weeding tool to get the super small pieces and your fingerse to get larger ones. I find this is the simplest way.
Apply the Iron On
For tips all about iron on and how to never miss a step just print out this iron on checklist.
Heat up your EasyPress 2 to 330 degrees if you are using the cotton/poly blend pajamas linked above and have an EasyPress mat! If these aren’t your specific variables then check out this heat guide from Cricut.
Put the vinyl down where you’d like it with the holographic side up and place your EasyPress 2 on it for 30 seconds.
Let the plastic cool and carefully remove the plastic film. After this, I flip my garment over and repeat the process for 15 seconds on the back to make sure no corners lift.
I also used holographic vinyl on this post for how to make a custom phone case!
Now you have some darling custom pajamas! I like working with the holographic iron on quite a bit. Stay tuned for more projects utilizing this material.
