Camping Koozies with the EasyPress Mini and Printable Vinyl
Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, we really love getting out in the wood, taking a hike and setting up our tent. Whether or not we spend a night or a week out in nature, we always miss it as soon as we’re back home. So, when I knew we were headed out–to the backyard instead of camping and the kiddo was sad, I decided to put together a quick set of koozies for our sodas that bring a little more camping vibe to our outing.
And WOW when I mean quick, I mean QUICK. This was less than 10 minutes. Less than 10 minutes. I mean, how do we even call that a craft?! If you’re ready to make a fast and fun camping koozie with printable vinyl and the EasyPress Mini, let’s get started.

Tips to Make Koozies for Camping
- Start by grabbing the printable vinyl here. There’s no sane way to make a koozie with such complex designs, unless you just LOVE weeding HTV. If you do, good on you. Not me. I love the idea of occasionally having a quick and fast print-and-cut project that is wildly complex and cool.
- Oh and you’re going to need some koozie blanks. That’s kind of important too. LOL!
- Heat up your EasyPress Mini (because, yes, this is a ridiculously fast project and you’ll want to go ahead and preheat that iron now.
- Then just download whichever of the awesome camping SVGs you might like to use. I grabbed the Let’s Get Toasted and Social Distancing Champ cut files for Cricut or Silhouette, but I made a ton of awesome camping SVGs that go with this–and am headed to go get more koozie blanks immediately so I can have a whole set.
How Do I Make Camping Koozies with the EasyPress Mini and Printable Vinyl?
I’m so glad you asked. Below is our written tutorial.
- Cricut Explore Air 2 or Maker
- Cricut EasyPress Mini
- Parchment Paper
- Desktop Printer
- Heat your EasyPress Mini.
- Download your SVG file, then load it into Cricut Design Space.
- Attach the SVG file using the attach button in the bottom right-hand corner. This will automatically turn your image into a print-and-cut project. Add any additional images you want to use on your koozies or other printable vinyl projects--I got 4 koozies out of one sheet.
- Click "Make" and set your material to printable vinyl. Do not mirror the image--this is not traditional HTV.
- Load your printable vinyl into your printer and send the print to the printer in Cricut Design Space.
- Load the printed vinyl into the Cricut Maker or Explore Air 2 and tell the machine to cut.
- Once your design is cut, peel the backing off the design and place the design onto the koozie.
- Place the parchment paper on top of the design and press with the EasyPress Mini.
- Gently remove the parchment paper and allow the koozie to cool for 5 minutes before handling.
