I have the original EasyPress and have loved using it for so many fun projects like these shark shirts I made for my boys. And although the original is still amazing the new EasyPress 2 does top it. To start off they added 2 new sizes to the EasyPress line up, the 6×7 (which is the one I will showcase today) and a 10×12 which I will share projects with in the near future. Other great features that were added to the new EasyPress 2 is that it heats up 25% faster than the original and it can reach up to a 400° temperature.

To start off we will gather our supplies:

Now to show you how easy it is I will lay out the steps in bullet form and for more detail you can see my video below.
  • Open Design Space and design your image or wording
  • Click Make It when done
  • Mirror your image
  • Set machine to iron on setting
  • Place vinyl face down on grip mat and cut out image
  • Weed out your iron on vinyl
  • Turn on EasyPress 2 and set to proper temperature and timing
  • Preheat your makeup bag for 5 seconds
  • Iron on your design to the makeup bag
  • Peel off iron on while still warm
  • All done!
Now it might not be a 3 step process but the steps are easy and quick too. This over all project didn’t take me more than 15 minutes to create from start to finish.
I hope this easy tutorial inspires you to create your own personalized gifts this holiday season with the amazing new EasyPress 2.
