Cricut Infusible Ink Coasters

The coolest thing about Cricut Infusible Ink is that you can use it on a variety of Cricut Infusible Ink blanks, so you can easily make these Cricut Infusible Ink coasters!  You might have seen the lake inspired DIY t-shirts Hubby and I made with Cricut Infusible Ink, but you aren’t limited to fabric.  Cricut sells ceramic coaster blanks, which are the perfect blank for the Infusible Ink because the extra gloss from the ceramic surface really makes the finished coaster design gleam.  It is a beautiful surface for the saturated colors of the Infusible Ink Transfer Sheets.  I made these cute lake inspired Cricut Infusible Ink coasters using leftover material from our t-shirts.  But you can make customized designs and create a one-of-a-kind gift for any occasion and PACK your coasters with rich, saturated color for a project that really wows.  Commemorate a special event or memory, or design a set of coasters with a funny quote or inside joke.  With Cricut Design Space there are plenty of ready-made designs to get you started and then you can tweak them or add your own text – the sky is the limit, but it’s super easy to get started I promise.

I used these Infusible Ink Transfer Sheets leftover from the package of two sheets Hubby and I used for our lake themed t-shirts.  It was a nice way to use up a scrap and save on supplies, while creating a cool, lake themed coaster we can use!  I love the negative space and the simplicity of the design.

How to Make DIY Cricut Infusible Ink Coasters:

First, design your DIY Cricut Infusible Ink coasters in Cricut Design Space.  Like I mentioned already, there are many coaster templates and ready-to-use designs you can customize, so don’t worry if you’re not a graphic designer by trade!  It is easy to make cool designs in Design Space.  When you’re happy with it, don’t forget to mirror your design!

Make sure your hands are free of lotions, etc. before handling the Infusible Ink Transfer Sheets.  When you’re ready with your design, position the piece of Infusible Ink Tranfer sheet on a cutting mat, liner side down, and follow the prompts to cut out your design.  Select Infusible Ink Transfer Sheet from the list of materials.  Roll the sheet of paper gently to help release the design and peel away the excess.  You can also trim off any access – I cut my sheet into four strips so I could weed each wave individually without having to work around the excess material.

How to Use Up Leftover Cricut Infusible Ink Transfer Sheets

Wipe the coaster with a lint-free cloth.  Position the design on the coaster front:

Because I don’t have a Cricut EasyPress Mat, I just laid down an old towel on my glass stove top oven.  I laid the coasters face down, as per the instructions.  It’s interesting because the heat will go through the back of the coasters.  Then lay a piece of butcher paper on top.

For this project, set the Cricut EasyPress to 400°F (205°C) and heat for 230 seconds.  Do not add any pressure, just let the press do its thing.  When it’s done, lift the press slowly but don’t touch the coasters yet – they will be HOT.  Let them cool fully before handling.  Peel off the liner and voila – super vivid coasters with a design that looks professionally printed!

Here is the Finished Cricut Infusible Ink Coaster:

These coasters are really nice quality.  The front is glossy and gorgeous and the back is a matte/bisque kind of finish that is super smooth – no felt needed.

My design is super simple – when you do a full coverage design, the color really, really POPS on this Cricut blank.  The waves I did were just a graphic already good to go.  I could have added our last name or our geographical coordinates, but I loved the simplicity.  There are lots of ways to customize a ready-made design with just a few clicks.

These make a sweet handmade gift idea so be sure to PIN this idea for later!  Once you get into Cricut projects, you won’t be able to stop – I even created a Pinterest Board just to collect Cricut project ideas.  I am always thinking about new things to make with my Cricut Joy (you can see all of my project tutorials here).
