introducing easypress 2 from cricut... guys! cricut just introduced the easypress 2! mind blown! seriously!

i couldn't wait to get my creative hands on the smallest of the new sizes: 6'' x 7''. featuring an updated color (a delicious raspberry) it comes in two other sizes: 9'' x 9'' and 12'' x 10'' which is honestly, perfect for any project!

before you click to buy, here are some of the awesome features:

  1. lightening fast heat up time, 60 seconds! wow!
  2. super-duper easy to use, even for a beginner.
  3. did someone say hot? this bad boy can reach 400 degrees.
  4. the 6'' x 7'' is extremely light and portable, perfect for retreats!
  5. won't i burn my counter? heck no, it comes with it's own safety base.

with the superb ceramic coated heat plate, you can also press your quilt blocks. how rad is that?

now that you've learned more about the amazing features, let's work on a project together.


  1. cricut maker
  2. cricut easypress 2
  3. cricut easypress mat (8'' x 10'')
  4. everyday iron-on vinyl
  5. weeding tool
  6. standard grip mat
  7. access to cricut's design space
  8. and finally, DIY tote bags/apron (you can find these at your local craft store)

now that you have your materials, let's start creating:

  1. log-in to cricut's design space and grab the project here.
  2. resize the artwork to fit your specific DIY tote bag.
  3. trim the iron-on to size, placing the shiny part down on the standard grip mat.
  4. cut out the artwork.
  5. weed the artwork.
  6. use the handy dandy easypress 2 chart for the correct settings.
  7. insert the easypress mat into the tote bag.
  8. using the easypress, press the iron-on onto the tote bag.
  9. allow the artwork to cool before removing the backing.

and just like that, you have your very own DIY tote bag. how cool is that?

*this project contains artwork/fonts that are available for purchase in design space.. the additional project shown in the photos was found under "craft" in cricut's massive artwork files!
