This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Cricut. The opinions and text are all mine.
As a last-minute way to decorate my front entryway for Easter, I decided to use a blank towel from All About Blanks and just a little bit of color with some cute eggs. I only had a few iron-on colors in my stash of Cricut iron-on materials and so I kept it nice and simple. Today I will show you step by step how to set up the egg designs, cut and then press using the Easy Press 2, my new favorite thing ever!

Grab design or create your own. In order to make this design I used three stock image eggs. I placed them where I wanted, changed the color so they all matched and resized to fit in my placement area.
Follow the prompts to continue to the next step. Make sure you “Mirror” your image or else it will be backward once you are finished.
Choose the Iron-on material option.
Cut vinyl to the correct size to avoid waste.
Place the vinyl – wrong side facing up – inside the area. Insert mat into the machine following prompts and cut the design.
Once cutting is finished remove the vinyl from the mat and use wedding tool and tweezers to remove all the extra vinyl pieces except the actual design elements.
In order to find the exact temperature to set your Cricut EasyPress 2 for the Express Iron-On head to Cricut Quilt Start guide and type in what materials you are using. This is an excellent resource.
For this material 300 for 15 seconds was recommended. Place either a thick towel protecting your workspace or use the Easy Pressing Mat. Press the towel using the EasyPress 2 first, why not, it’s an iron 🙂
Place the vinyl egg design with the sticky side of the clear vinyl facing the towel. This should show the design is right side facing up. Press firmly with your fingers and hands.
Place the EasyPress 2 over the vinyl area. Press following the suggested temperature and time. The timer will need to be activated. Hold in place with a little pressure until the buzzer goes off.
Turn the towel to the wrong side and repeat the pressing.
Once pressing is complete on both sides wait for the clear topper to cool. Then remove the clear plastic topper.
You’re ready to decorate for Easter using this fast and easy tutorial. Have fun and be sure to share your finished towel with me over at my social media spots.
