Cutting Felt with the Cricut Machine!
|You can use craft squares from craft store.|
|Choose felt for the project. |
I like to use the bulk felt that is on the stiffer side
and that isn't too fuzzy.
|You will need a good hot iron!|
|Cut felt to 12 X 12 or to the size of your Cricut mat|
|Then cut the interfacing the same size as your felt.|
|Iron glue side down (paper should be upright) with a dry|
hot iron. Make sure to really get the corners!
|Make sure that the Heat & Bond is completely adhered|
You might want to put something under the felt so your
iron board doesn't get messed up.
|Peel the paper away from the felt. You can see the shiny|
interface on the felt. Some people say keep the paper on, but this
gets way too messy on your cutting mat!
|Use a new blade and the deep cut casing. This is the blue casing!|
|Put on the cutting mat just like you would your paper,|
be sure to put interface down on the mat
and felt side up.
|Be sure to really smooth it out and that there are no bubbles.|
|Load into the Cricut and make your cut. |
I use max speed, max pressure and 6 on the dial.
|Here are your cuts!|
You can iron the cut out felt pieces right on your paper and it will adhere or use our regular bonding glue. I usually iron it on. It works great! This is a sneak peak of the blog hop coming up on 9/22/12!
