Infusible ink is fun to play around with but sometimes you’re looking for something more than the standard infusible ink blanks.
I love infusible ink and am always looking for ways I can use it. Sometimes I don’t need another coaster (although rarely.) I found and experimented with some awesome things that turned out super cool so I wanted to share.
What can you use infusible ink on?
Cricut offers a lot of official ‘blanks’ for you. I have really liked all of them. (I’ve tried them all!) I have found a few alternatives too if they are out of stock.
What you’re looking for is straight up polyester when it comes to clothing. Cotton doesn’t work as well.
If you’re looking for random things like I’m going to share here what you are looking for is sublimation materials.
Is Cricut Infusible Ink worth it?
Yes it is. Depending on what you’re wanting to do. If you’re looking to make a shirt with a simple-ish design that lasts a long time, Infusible Ink is worth it. If you’re just making little crafty things for holidays or something, you can away with iron on or vinyl.
This mousepad turned out really neat! The color bled just a bit so expect a bit of that. I loved how mine turned out though! It seems like it will last me quite a while too.
How I made the mousepad was super simple! It was just like doing an infusible ink t shirt.
The pop socket was really neat. It took me a couple tries to get it perfect so I’m putting together a post of exactly how I did it. The problem with the small surface is that it makes it difficult to come up with designs that will go on the small space! I just cut out a straight up circle here but you CAN do a cut and I will be sharing that soon.
This is a blank I’ll utilize a lot. It turned out really nice with just minor bleeding. The process was the same as linked above on the Infusible Ink Blanks post. Treat it similar to a t shirt!
I have seen some sublimation puzzles that I’m dying to try next! Is there something you’d like to try?
