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.

  • Cricut Explore Air 2 or Maker
  • Cricut EasyPress Mini
  • Parchment Paper
  • Desktop Printer


  1. Heat your EasyPress Mini.
  2. Download your SVG file, then load it into Cricut Design Space.
  3. 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.
  4. Click "Make" and set your material to printable vinyl. Do not mirror the image--this is not traditional HTV.
  5. Load your printable vinyl into your printer and send the print to the printer in Cricut Design Space.
  6. Load the printed vinyl into the Cricut Maker or Explore Air 2 and tell the machine to cut.
  7. Once your design is cut, peel the backing off the design and place the design onto the koozie.
  8. Place the parchment paper on top of the design and press with the EasyPress Mini.
  9. Gently remove the parchment paper and allow the koozie to cool for 5 minutes before handling. photo collage of how to make easy printable vinyl camping koozies with easypress mini
