Cricut EasyPress 2
If you are subscribed to my YouTube Channel, you’ll know I recently received a new Cricut EasyPress 2 from my friends over at Cricut. If you missed it, you can see my video HERE. I’m no stranger to the EasyPress, my hubby bought me one last year when they were first released and I’ve used in several projects. So when I saw the new sizes, I knew the 12×10 would be perfect for all the holiday projects I have planned!
Before we get started with the tutorial, allow me to share a little bit about the new EasyPress 2. Like the EasyPress, it has a ceramic-coated heat plate for an even heat. The EasyPress 2 is now available in three sizes, 6×7, 9×9, and 12×10. I picked the 12×10 since I knew I was going to be crafting larger format projects. The EasyPress 2 has faster heat up time and a precise temperature control up to 400F. The Safety Base keeps your work-space protected while keeping the EasyPress protected in it’s resting position. I absolutely LOVE the fabulous raspberry color and easy to read digital display!
With the EasyPress 2 and Cricut’s StrongBond™ Guarantee, I know my projects are going to last wash after wash. Have you seen the new StrongBond™ Guarantee on some of the iron-on materials? If you are not completely satisfied with the results when used as directed, Cricut will replace it for free! Be sure to look for the StrongBond™ Guarantee on select iron-on materials.
