DIY Gamer Valentine Treat Bag with Cricut Explore Air 2
Crafting for Valentine’s Day has never been easier. Love comes in all shapes and sizes. And with Cricut, anyone can become a Valentine’s Day match-MAKER! With all the amazing capabilities available with the Cricut Explore Air 2 and Cricut Design Space your options are endless. I particularly love how easy it is to modify a Cricut Access design to make it your own like I did for this project. You don’t have to be a artist or graphic designer to be a MAKER with Cricut!
What you will need for this project:
If your kids love gaming, this Gamer Valentine is right up their alley!
Start by loading my Gamer In Love design in Cricut Design Space. This design is included with your Cricut Access Subscription. As I mentioned earlier, I created this design using existing elements and fonts included in Cricut Access. So easy! But don’t worry, I’ve done the work for you already. All you need to do is resize the image as needed for your project and MAKE!
Next, load your favorite color of Everyday Iron-On vinyl with the shiny side up.
Set the dial to Iron-On and don’t forget to make sure you MIRROR IMAGE before sending the design to your machine.
Now for my favorite part, weeding! Weeding Everyday Iron-on is a cinch and so therapeutic!
Next head to the Cricut EasyPress Heat Guide and enter your project materials to determine the recommended EasyPress Settings.
For this project, I set my EasyPress 2 to 280 degrees for 30 seconds.
Now it’s time to EasyPress! Center the design on your material and place it on top of the EasyPress mat. Place the EasyPress on top and press the button. With light pressure, hold until the timer reaches zero. Remove the EasyPress and peel off the carrier paper to reveal the finished project!
Wasn’t that a cinch? This design can be applied to all kinds of materials for your Valentine. These treat bags are the perfect size for pencils, candy and party favors for my son’s classroom party!
I hope you’ll give this Gamer Valentine Treat Bag a try. Let me know what you make with your Cricut Explore Air 2, I’d love to hear from you!
