Have you ever wanted to use iron-on vinyl with a small or curved surface? If you are applying iron on to a hat, socks, shoes, or stuffed animals you will want to use the new Cricut EasyPress Mini!
The EasyPress Mini is the newest member of the EasyPress family. At about half the size of the smallest EasyPress, the mini is about 3.5 x 2 (business card size). This compact iron has all the power of the larger sizes with a lightweight, portable and easy to store size.
- Safety feature of insulated base and an auto-shutoff feature.
- Three simple heat settings for all iron on types, including infusible ink (learn more about infusible ink here)
- Ceramic-coated heat plate for dry, even, edge-to-edge heat
WHAT PROJECTS CAN I USE THE EASYPRESS MINI FOR?
- stuffed animals
- shoes and slippers
- small projects
When I got the EasyPress Mini I was so excited to use it for some DIY Christmas Ornaments. Let me show you how I made this cute little caticorn ornament.
