Can you believe this adorable elephant is under $10 blank on Amazon! Which means you can make it for about $11. This is way cheaper than buying one on Etsy for upwards of $30! And it’s super easy to make! 

I used the birth stats of my great Neice Ja’Neah for this birth stat elephant. I also made her these First Christmas Ornament, Baby Milestone Blanket, and these Milestones by Month Onesies

Make a personalized Stuffed Animal with the Crcuit Easypress mini. These make an amazing gift or keepsake for a baby's birth.

Tools

  • EasyPress Mini
  • Cricut Machine
  • Standard Grip Mat

Instructions

  1. Create your design in Cricut Design Space, I made mine using all design space fonts and images (I suggest selecting the whole design and grouping for the next steps).
  2. Measure the area you want to put the heat transfer vinyl.
  3. Adjust the size of the design in Cricut Design Space (if you grouped you can resize it all together).
  4. Adjust Your Colors.
  5. Click make it, then adjust your on screen mat if necessary.
  6. Click continue.
  7. Select your machine, material and then press cut.
  8. Remove the Heat transfer vinyl from the machine and weed out your design.
  9. Set your EasyPress Mini to the highest setting and allow it to heat.
  10. You may have to cut around the carrier sheet a bit to make it lay flat.
  11. Once your EasyPress has heated, you can then press on the design.
  12. Move the press from side to side as you work your way from one end of the design to the other.
  13. Allow the heat plate to extend a little beyond all edges of the design. Allowing the heat plate to extend beyond the edge ensures that design gets a complete transfer. 
  14. You only need light pressure.
  15. Continue moving about 15 seconds or so.
  16. Remove the carrier sheet, and place a piece of parchment paper over top and press again for a few seconds.
  17. You can now add the bow with hot glue (optional)
  18. Check the video if you need more of a visual.
