Coasters With Cricut Infusible Ink Transfer Sheets and Pens

Show Some Love!

I had the great idea to use my Cricut Infusible Ink Transfer Sheets to make coasters. Cricut makes this pretty blue cloud looking transfer sheet, this is the one here.

I used the round coasters which are ceramic, so if you have the square coasters you can check here to find the guides on heat settings and time.

I had the great idea to use my Cricut Infusible Ink Transfer Sheets to make coasters. But I also wanted to outline them using the pens. It turned out great! #easy #coasters #incredibleinks #cricut

But I wanted to go a step further and outline the design I cut out of the transfer sheets with the Cricut Infusible Ink Pens.

What I did was found a design I liked in Cricut design space, I literally went in there and typed in coasters, I know really unique lol.

I only wanted to do 2 coasters, so I selected 2 designs. 1 with circles and 1 with birds. 

Once I got the images into Design Space and changed the colors, and then I duplicated them and changed the cut lines on the duplicates to draw and clicked to make it.

I pressed them both with the Cricut Infusible Ink Transfers first, once I did, I decided I liked the circles so much that I didn’t want to trace them, ok you got me, I also got scared that it wouldn’t work… But it did, and came out amazing.

What do I need to use Cricut Infusible Ink Transfer Sheets to make my own coasters?

  • Cricut Cutting Machine(any will work, but I love my Cricut Maker)
  • EasyPress
  • EasyPress Mat
  • Cricut Infusible Ink Heat Transfer Sheets

Infusible ink is a lot like sublimation, the thing I really love about them is that it cuts and applies like heat transfers or vinyl application.

There are a few Cricut Approved blanks out there, shirts, tote bags, baby bodysuits, and a growing list of compatible materials.

These Coasters were really super simple to make and would make awesome gifts and even a great item to sell.
