If you are looking for a last minute gift to give to a Mother in your life look no further. Today I am sharing how easily you can create a personalized make up bag with the help of the Cricut Explore Air 2 as well as other fabulous Cricut products.
Disclosure: I am part of the Cricut Blogger Program and I receive products/compensation in exchange for craft ideas. But all opinions are 100% my own. Some of the links used here are affiliate read my full disclosure HERE. To begin our project you will first need to gather your supplies. The supplies include:
- Cricut Explore Air 2 (or any other Cricut machine compatible with Cricut Design Space)
- Cricut EasyPress (or a regular iron)
- Cricut EasyPress Mat
- Cricut Patterned Vinyl
- Cricut Weeder
- Make Up Bag
Once you have all your supplies gathered you can begin working on your project. Open up the design I created in the Cricut Design Space and size the design to fit the make up bag you are using. Then follow the on screen prompts to cut out your design. Make sure to MIRROR your image since this is an iron on project.Next you will need to weed out the patterned iron on that you do not need. After place your design on the bag to figure out its placement.Now you will iron on your design to the bag. I used my Cricut EasyPress and mat, I then set it to the recommended heating and time that Cricut suggests. If you do not have the EasyPress don’t worry you can still use your household iron.After I ironed it on I waited for it to cool down before trying to remove the liner. When I was trying to remove the liner I noticed that it hadn’t stuck on completely good so I ironed it on again for another 30 seconds. After that second time it all adhered perfectly to the bag.
Here is the finished personalized make up bag, my only mistake was not adding some color behind the word beauty so that it would show better. You can still slightly see it but with some color behind it the word would pop out more. I still love how it turned out though, very soft and feminine.Happy crafting!!!!
