Tips to Make A Watermelon Tote with Cricut infusible Ink
- One of the most AWESOME things about this project is that you can make it WITHOUT A CRICUT. That’s right, no Cricut cutting machine required. I did use my EasyPress, but that doesn’t count.
- So, I’ve been thinking about all the cute things that you could make with this simple watermelon craft for Cricut Infusible Inks. Some of my favorite ideas:
- Kitchen Towels (would that not make an AWESOME gift idea?!)
- You could even use this easy idea to make other fruits like strawberries or lemons. I haven’t ventured onto that limb yet though! LOL!
How Do I Make this Infusible Ink Watermelon Tote?
I’m so glad you asked. Below is our written tutorial.
- Line up the ink transfer sheet on your tote to estimate the amount to cut. I chose a smaller bag, so cut roughly 4 inches of green and 8 inches for the cherry.
- Use the EasyPress to iron out the wrinkles in your tote. If you don’t own an EasyPress, you can use an iron. Follow the directions in the Cricut Heat Guide. Press for 15 seconds on each side.
- Place the infusible ink transfer sheets with the colored side down onto the tote bag (about 1-inch apart). Tape the sheets down with the Cricut Heat Resistant Tape.
- Insert the EasyPress Mat inside the tote with cardstock on top of the mat to prevent bleed-through. Place butcher paper on top of your infusible ink transfer sheet. Cover with your EasyPress and press according to your Cricut Heat Guide.
- Carefully remove the butcher paper and infusible transfer ink sheet from the tote bag once it has cooled.
- Using the infusible ink marker in black, draw teardrop-shaped watermelon seeds directly on top of the red transfer on your tote.
