I couldn’t wait to share how to make custom koozies with your Easy Press Mini, because it’s such an easy project, I just love them!
Plus, this looks like a fantastically hard project, but it’s secretly super easy. Which makes the best kind of gift, right?! I mean, seriously?!
Not to downplay the gift, because I seriously did do some work, but the thing is, when it’s easy, that kind of makes it like an almost secret gift to me, too. So, now that I start to overthink this, like the royal over-thinker I am, I kind of feel guilty a little.
But, no. This was work. And even though the EasyPress Mini makes it super easy, it’s ok. Because it’s still a good bachelorette party gift–it is! LOL!

Let’s just move on from all that and talk about how I made these, shall we?!
Because, really the toughest part, other than working-up the design and deciding on all the pretty swirls or whether or not to have flowers or arrows…more overthinking…was weeding.
And I, despite all the Cricut projects I do, do not particularly enjoy weeding.
But, give me one of those little weeding tools and I have a blast!
I just wrap a piece of tape around my wrist, so I have something to stick the extra pieces of vinyl onto that I’m discarding and start picking away. Way more fun than doing it with my nails.
But, really, the very best part is pressing the design down into your blank and seeing how it turns out when you peel away the transfer tape.
That’s the money-shot.
