I’ve been traveling to and from conferences and brand retreats the last three weeks and I’m finally home for awhile. Wahoo! It’s been FOREVER since I’ve spent a day crafting and I’ve been looking forward to a day in my sweats, hair in a bun and snuggling up with my craft supplies! Since Teacher Appreciation Week is around the corner, I decided to make a DIY Teacher Tote Bag with the all-new Cricut Iron-On Designs.
The best part about these new Iron-On Designs is that they are PERFECT for beginning, medium and expert crafters and take just MINUTES to make. You actually don’t even need a Cricut Cutting machine to use them. All you need is a Cricut EasyPress (or iron) and a fabric T-Shirt, Tote, onesies, etc… The designs are ready-made and ready to apply! I customized my Teacher Tote with some polka-dotted ribbon and tassels. Keep reading for a full tutorial.
MATERIALS for the DIY Teacher Tote Bag
Cricut Iron-On Design
Canvas Tote Bag
Hot Glue Gun
1. Place your EasyPress Mat inside the Canvas Tote Bag.
2. Heat up your Cricut EasyPress to 340 degrees and pre-warm the Canvas Tote Bag.
3. Place the Teacher-Apple Cricut Iron-On Design on the warmed Canvas Tote Bag.
4. If you’re using the Circut EasyPress Mat, use the EasyPress on the Iron-On Design for 30 seconds. If using just an EasyPress, 50 seconds. For detailed instructions, check out the Cricut EasyPress Recommended Settings.
5. Let the design cool completely and slowly unpeel the top layer off the Iron-On Designs.
6. Hot glue ribbon around the top rim of the Canvas Tote Bag.
7. Tie the green tassels around a handle of the Canvas Tote Bag.
Pin the DIY Teacher Tote Bag for later.
