DIY Coasters with Cricut Infusible Ink Pens

DIY Coasters with Cricut Infusible Ink Pens

I've been seeing lots of different cute Infusible Ink coaster designs, so I wanted to give this project a go myself. These were made particularly my daughter's piano teacher.

Materials Needed:
• Cricut Ceramic Coasters
• Infusible Ink Pens (I used black 1.0 and 0.4 sizes)
• Cricut Die Cutting Machine 
• Cricut Easy Press 2
• Cricut Easy Press Mat (or towel)
Heat Resistant Tape
• Cricut Standard or Light Grip mat
• Laser Copy Paper
• White Cardstock
• Butcher Paper (comes with Infusible Ink transfer sheets)
• Lint Free Cloth

Directions:

1. Choose Your Design
There are a number of designs already available to you in Design Space. If you are making your own, the coasters are 3.5".  

2. Draw
My designs had some intricate lines, so I used the infusible ink pens for my designs rather than an infusible ink transfer sheet. 

Make sure you have draw selected under linetype in Design Space. Use a piece of laser copy paper and place on your mat. Don't forget to mirror your design as well.

Fill in your design if necessary. If you're doing this make sure to place another piece of paper underneath as the pens will bleed through.

Note: I used the black 0.4 sized pen to initially draw my design. I used the 1.0 pen to help fill in the larger spaces.

3. Apply Your Design
Use a lint free cloth to remove any debris from your coasters. Place your design on your coaster and use heat resistant tape to secure.

Then place your piece of cardstock on top of your mat as again, the ink will bleed through. Place your coaster face down on the cardstock, followed by a piece of butcher paper.

Using the EasyPress 2, press at 400° for 240 seconds.

Be careful when done as the coasters will be very hot. Let cool completely before removing your design.
