How to Make a Reverse Canvas
You can make a Reverse Canvas using almost any canvas, but I personally prefer the chunkier frames so I use the Back-Stapled Canvas.
What you will need:
Design of your choice from Cricut Access
EasyPress 2 or Iron
Wood Stain or Furniture Marker – I prefer the markers for small projects, they are less messy and have less odor.
I created a step by step video tutorial to walk you through the process….

Here are the step by steps for your easy reference:
Using the TrueControl Knife, remove the canvas from the frame.
Trim the canvas with scissors to fit the back of the frame.
Load your design in Cricut Design Space, resize and mirror image and select Foil Iron On from the materials menu.
Load the Foil Iron On with the shiny side down on your cutting mat. Send the design to your machine. Weed the design.
Set the temperature and timer on the EasyPress 2 per the Interactive Quick Reference Guide. For Foil Iron On, on canvas and using the EasyPress Mat: 290° for 30 secs.
Preheat the canvas for 5 seconds. Place the design with the clear side up and place the EasyPress on top. Press the green button and hold for 30 secs.
Turn the canvas over and press for 15 secs.
Peel off cold.
Stain the wood frame.
Attach the canvas to the back of the frame with hot glue.
And that’s it! I told you that was a cinch! I hope you give this technique a try. Also be sure to check out my tutorial for a Coffee Bar Sign that pairs perfectly with this design.
