Thursday Tutorials - Cricut Iron-On Vinyl


Hello all, JoNeita from Create with JoNeita here with this weeks Thursday Tutorial.  I hope everyone has had a great time learning all about using vinyl.  Remember there is still time to enter a project, and that if we reach 100 entries, then our wonderful sponsor, CricutVinylSupplies.com will be giving away a Cricut Expression to one lucky winner. 

I have been wanting to try the Cricut Iron-on Vinyl, but was a bit uncertain about it.  I started looking online, and to my surprise there are not many videos about this product, but I did find a great one, which explains the process.  This video is from the Smith Simple Crafts You Tube page.



The main things that I learned, is that you have to flip horizontal your images, especially text, when using Iron-on vinyl.  The second is that the Iron-on vinyl comes with the transfer sheet already on, and that the shinny side (the transfer sheet) should be placed down on your Cricut mat. 

I hope this helps you to make a great project.  Don't forget to enter a vinyl project in this weeks challenge so you will be entered to win a Cricut Expression!!!
