Tips to Make a Gnome Garden Flag for Easter
- Start here by grabbing the cut file set for the little Easter gnomes I made. I imported the whole set into Cricut Design Space then ungrouped everything. Once they were ungrouped, I pulled together each of the elements I wanted on my yard flag then added a little text and darkened the colors a bit to my liking, then sent the design to make as a print-then-cut project. The trick here though is that, after mirroring the design, I printed it on my sublimation printer, then skipped the cutting and went right to the heat press!
- If you’re ready to tackle this project, but you need some sublimation-ready yard flags, here’s the easy-to-use set I grabbed. They are perfectly sized – and there are several of them in a package so you can make multiple yard flags with this method, one for each season!
- The one thing I would strongly recommend is, instead of using a little EasyPress Mini, get out the larger EasyPress 2. The larger surface will take less time to sublimate and have a more consistent result. I’m not nocking the Mini, let’s be clear – it does the job quite nicely on smaller pieces. But a larger pressing surface is good for these larger projects.
