You might be thinking: Two ways? Really?! But seriously, there are two ways to make popsicle holders with Cricut EasyPress Mini. And both are quick–and BOTH are awesome!
Popsicle Holders with Cricut EasyPress – 2 Ways!
Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, we are seriously hot. Summer has hit here and it’s warm. Ok, maybe not as warm as the poor folks boiling down in Texas, but we still need popsicles here. And the kid is ALWAYS grabbing a paper towel and then said paper towel is impolitely discarded–and the dog shreds it and I’m exasperated. To stop that cycle and add a little personalized fun to our summer treats, I decided to make some fun popsicle holders with Cricut EasyPress. And I found two ways to do it!
Basically, I wanted to make a fun summer craft and experiment some more with the infusible ink from Cricut. This was a great excuse–and the kid is absolutely excited, to say the least. Now to make a ton more! Ha! If you’re still with me and want to make some fun popsicle holders with Cricut, let’s get started.

Tips to Make Easy Popsicle Covers
- Start by getting the popsicle covers here. I mean, you could always sew your own, but I’m about done with sewing this week–it seems to get harder and harder. So, just grab some.
- Get ready to get CREATIVE! I’m not kidding, this is going to be fun. To make each one, here’s what I used:
- The Dragon Popsicle Holder: My dragon popsicle cover was made using Cricut Infusible Ink sheets like these. Now, to be COMPLETELY transparent, I’ll will say that I had a bit of trouble with the final colors being different from what the sheets are like before heating–but also from what’s on the packaging. So, I initially tried a mermaid popsicle cover but the colors came out much more primary than pastel and just not mermaid-ey at all. So, when working with Cricut infusible inks, be sure to plan on the color being slightly different than anticipated–and work toward primary, not pastel unless you specifically get the pastel ones.

- The Baby Yoda Popsicle Holder and Unicorn Popsicle Holder: To make both the awesome Baby Yoda popsicle holder and the unicorn popsicle holder, I actually used Cricut Infusible Ink Pens like these. So, I had similar problems with the colors being off–but being a little smarter cookie the second time around, I tested these colors on a scrap piece of paper and scrap cloth before readying my actual craft. So, I recommend doing that and knowing that you need to check each color you plan to use before racing in with it. So, I just used the Cricut to draw the line work and I colored in the rest! I even got some kid-colored ones in from a friend’s littlies she asked me to make as a gift for them. So cute and wonderfully personalized!

How Do I Make Popsicle Holders with Cricut EasyPress?
I’m so glad you asked. Below is our written tutorial.
Dragon Popsicle Holder
- Dragon Scale SVG
- Red Infusible Ink Sheet
- Black Infusible Ink Sheet
- Yellow Infusible Ink Sheet
- Popsicle Holder Blank
Baby Yoda Popsicle Holder
Unicorn Popsicle Holder
- Cricut EasyPress Mini
- Cricut Explore Air 2 or Cricut Maker
- Cricut Infusible Ink Pens
- Parchment Paper (Butcher Paper)
- To make the dragon popsicle holder, download the SVG file, then upload it to Cricut Design Space and follow the prompts to cut a strip of scales from red, yellow and black infusible ink sheets. Weed the design. If desired, separate the scales, then layer them onto the transfer paper in a random pattern (I so desired). Place the infusible ink scales face-down onto the popsicle holder blank, followed by the parchment paper, and press per the directions on your infusible ink. Remove the transfer paper and allow to cool before enjoying!
- To make the unicorn popsicle holder or the baby yoda popsicle holder, download the SVG file, then upload it to Cricut Design space and follow the prompts as if you were cutting the drawing. But before clicking "Make It", select the shape and change the type of line to "draw" instead of "cut". Load the black infusible ink pen and laser copy paper into the Cricut and allow the Cricut to draw the shape. Color the design in with the infusible ink pens, as desired. Place the infusible ink drawing face-down onto the popsicle holder blank, followed by the parchment paper, and press per the directions on your infusible ink pens. Remove the laser copy paper and allow to cool before enjoying.
