Whenever you're cutting out a design or even drawing with the markers and markers, you'll want to make sure you reflect your design. You will also need to cut them with the good side of the material facing down on the mat. You will press it when the transfer foil is facing up in a similar way to heat transfer vinyl. Most iron-on materials come adhered to a shiny, transparent, heat-resistant lining that protects your design during the heat transfer process.
It is necessary to place the material siding down so that the machine can cut the design and leave the coating intact. For this reason, you should reflect your design in Design Space before you cut it. Otherwise, the design will appear upside down on the base material (especially important if the design includes text). The Cricut Design Space has a lot of images and projects to choose from, but as soon as I bought the Cricut I knew I would try to create very specific visions with the precision and flexibility of the tool.
Either from the Smart Set Dial if you have an Explore Machine or from Cricut Design Space if you have a Maker. And here is the vinyl side of Cricut SportFlex White iron-on vinyl, look closely, and you'll see that it's getting a little less glossy every time. Let me tell you that I ruined several projects at the beginning of my Cricut journey because I didn't understand the full meaning of these functions. I'm going to give you the basic introduction to Cricut and show you my first project.
If you want the 30-second cut, check out my TikTok video. Before Cricut approached me to try out the Maker 3, I'll admit that I spent many afternoons at Joann Fabrics trying to figure out which machine did what, Googling and referencing the brilliant packages of materials that seemed like a secret language I couldn't understand. In today's tutorial, you'll learn how to “Look” and “Flip” both on the desktop and in the Cricut Design Space app. This is the printer that I like to use for print quality and that I will use for my Cricut projects that require printing an image.
Once the Cricut is finished, you'll need to remove the extra vinyl around the text so that only the lettering will remain. You just started using your Cricut and someone told you that you had to mirror your images when you wanted to do some iron-on projects. So, after some YouTube videos on how to set up and cut removable vinyl with the Cricut, I tried it out. To turn on “Mirror” in the Cricut app, tap the small mouse pad icon in the upper left corner of the app, and then tap each individual mat you want to use this feature on.
The flower was a very simple design for mockups and create an image file, upload it to the Cricut Design Studio, change the size and follow the simple and easy to follow instructions to load the removable smart vinyl and start cutting.
