Black History Month w/ Cricut

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Cricut. The opinions and text are all mine.

The future belongs to those who prepare today.  Black History month is a time to reflect on those that paved the way before us.  BGC was born out of need to inspire but that inspiration couldn’t have come without the inspiration from our ancestors.  That’s why this quote is so meaningful as it emphasizes the importance of preparation. Preparing and equipping this generation with the creative tools necessary to craft a meaningful future.

Thank you to brands like Cricut who are making it  easier for everyone to celebrate Black History through creativity by adding diverse images to your library!

Supplies:

Instructions:

  • Place the Infusible Ink Transfer Sheet onto the mat with the design side facing up.
  • In Design Space, chose this design in the Black History Month cartridge.
  • If using our Cricut Explore, turn the dial to custom and select Infusible Ink Transfer Sheet, load your mat and hit Go!
  • Remove your design from the mat and be sure to trim away unused areas of the sheet! Scraps always makes for great designs for other projects.
  • Use your fingers (or tweezers) to weed the design removing the negative pieces so all you’re left with is your design on your liner.
  • Set your Cricut EasyPress to 385 degrees and 15 seconds.
  • Place your shirt on top of the EasyPress mat and put the white cardstock inside of the shirt.  This ensures your mat and shirt are protected.
  • Use a lint roller to remove any lint or debris.  This step is important as any small piece of fiber can cause imperfections when you transfer your design.
  • Cove your shirt with a piece of butcher paper that is larger than your heat plate. (The Butcher paper is included in your infusible in transfer sheet).
  • Remove moisture and wrinkles by preheating your shirt for 15 seconds.
  • Once your shirt has cooled completely, place the design face down on the garment and cover with butcher paper.
  • Press using your EasyPress at 385 for 40 seconds.
  • Once the timer is complete, slowly lift your press and once cool, you can reveal your design!
