Create Baby Wall Decor with the Cricut EasyPress 2

I love creating personalized gifts - especially for new little ones! Thanks to my Cricut Maker and EasyPress 2 I can create custom baby wall decor that really makes a statement.

CREATE BABY WALL DECOR WITH CRICUT

Iron-on is one of my favorite materials to use with my Cricut but I have always felt limited by the size of the EasyPress. Cricut is releasing two new sizes this Fall - 12x10 and 6x7 so now you have the perfect size EasyPress for any project. I am so excited about the larger size (and shoutout to the new raspberry color!) because it allows me to create larger scale projects like this canvas in less time and without worrying about getting full coverage. Perfect! {FTC Disclaimer: This is a sponsored blog post but the opinions are mine all mine!

Loving that tee-pee print? It is a FREE printable from A Joyful Riot! I am obsessed with it!

SUPPLIES NEEDED

HOW TO CREATE BABY WALL DECOR WITH CRICUT

1. Tape around edges of canvas - this will give your finished project a white edge.

2. Cut cardstock to desired size and apply repositionable/temporary adhesive, then apply it to the center of your canvas. I used my Xyron Creative Station with Repositionable Adhesive and it worked like a dream!

3. Use dauber to apply paint around the edges of the cardstock then use paintbrush to paint the rest of the canvas. Let dry and repeat if necessary, then remove cardstock and tape.

4. Create image/phrase in Design Space. I've got this project saved in Cricut Community so you don't have to start from scratch! Use the sizing option (don't forget to unlock the image) to make your image fit perfectly in to the open space on your canvas.

5. Cut your image from Iron-On material. I used the Maker but this could also be done on an Explore machine. Don't forget to mirror the image before cutting!

6. Remove excess iron-on and use weeding tool to remove centers of letters.

7. This is where the 16x20 EasyPress Mat really comes in handy! Because the canvas is raised (not flush to the table) I need padding underneath. By folding the large mat in half I have enough cushion to apply the iron-on!

8. Center image on canvas and cover with Iron-On Protective Sheet. This will protect your paint from the heat of the EasyPress.

9. Use the EasyPress recommended settings chart to determine temperature and time for your canvas. I did 340 degrees for 30 seconds. The greatest thing about the EasyPress 2 is I could do this entire large project in one fell swoop! No more multiple passes on the same project!

10. Remove clear film from design and voila! Custom Baby Wall Decor!
