Here are the steps for reference…
Press the Glitter HTV to the back of the faux leather at 340 degrees for 10 seconds. Don’t forget the heat-resistant tape and butcher paper!
Press the sublimation HTV to the front of the Faux Leather at 395 degrees for 10 seconds.
Remove the carrier sheets from both sides.
Open the design in Cricut Design Space. Size as needed. Add your name easily using a Disney-inspired font. Be sure to Group it with the pumpkins and flatten the image. Send the image to your sublimation printer. You can skip cutting the pumpkins with the Cricut, we’ll do that later by hand.
Using a Stong Grip mat, masking tape, and brayer, secure the faux leather to the mat. Cut using the leather setting, deep point blade, and “more pressure”.
Hand cut around the pumpkins with scissors, just within the black box. You don’t want the black box to come up on your leather. Be sure not to cut all around the pumpkins, you’ll want to paper to add an extra layer of protection for the heat press. Carefully line up the images on top of the faux leather, with the print side faced down. Secure with heat-resistant tape.
Press the sublimation print onto the faux leather at 395 degrees for 30-40 seconds.
Glue the two pumpkins together and add your key ring of choice.
Isn’t it darling? What do you think? I love how this project turned out!
I hope you try making the Halloween Mickey luggage tag, it’s great for your Disney trips or any seasonal travel!
