I have had the EasyPress Mini for 1 week and have used it for almost every iron on project so far. This little gadget can get to every crack and crevice.
I’m not sure how I’ve been doing so many iron on projects without the EasyPress Mini. However I also thought that when the EasyPress original came out and they just keep getting better. I made a quick project for Disneyland to get my feet wet with this little gadget and wanted to share some observations.
First of all I just designed this cut file that you are welcome to use to make a hat of your own. I did one for me, my husband and my son. I tried regular everyday Iron-on and foil iron on. The foil iron on didn’t turn out quite right only because I jumped the gun and had it way too hot. This is how I do most of my projects, mess one up so I learn how you were SUPPOSED to have done it. HA!
What type of iron-on can I use with an EasyPress?
First of all, all EasyPresses are created equal and made to work in tandem with every iron on material Cricut sells. If it says ‘iron-on’ on the roll then you can use your EasyPress.
My first tip I want to give you is this little thing gets HOT. For most projects the middle setting is where you will want to be. Unlike the regular EasyPress 2, you don’t set a specific temperature. They give you three temperature “levels” so to speak. The whole surface has an even heat which is awesome with the shape it has.
What projects will you want to utilize your EasyPress Mini?
My second tip is that don’t think to yourself ‘I don’t do small projects I don’t need a small iron’. I have used this SO many times to fix mistakes I’ve made in larger iron on projects. You know when you’re removing the plastic and it starts lifting a corner? Well this is a perfect way to get it back where it needs to be before you remove the piece of plastic.!
Some of these weird objects may be made of a different material like a plastic based material. If that is the case I suggest getting a teflon sheet to protect your surface. I have one of these anyway because I love doing weird iron on projects!
My projects is a super quick and simple one. Som I wanted to share an amazing example of the amazing things that can be done with the EasyPress Mini.
My friends a Pretty Providence customized a simple pair of shoes and made them so beautiful!
