Last year, I posted on Instagram about making easy Thanksgiving place cards. This year, with the release of the Cricut Easy Press Mini, this project became even easier! Get ready to decorate your Thanksgiving table with style and impress all of your relatives!
The EasyPress Mini is a pocket-sized heat press and is perfect to pair with any of the other sized EasyPresses. In this case, you’ll only need the EasyPress Mini for this craft! The possibilities are numberless when it comes to what you can use the Mini with! Think hats, shoes, sleeves and this goes on!!
Cricut’s EasyPress Mini has the same technology as the EasyPress 2 models with an even heating plate and easy to use settings.
For this project, I utilized my Explore Air 2 machine to cut the Iron On Vinyl for my place cards. I found my fall-themed blanks in the Bullseye’s Playground Area at Target.
For those crafters who enjoy paper crafts and vinyl projects (adhesive or iron-on), the Explore Air 2 machines are a exactly what you’ll need! They cut this materials wonderfully! I set up my material on my mat and made sure to “mirror” my image in Design Space before I cut.
Once cut, I weeded my design. I used the Elizabeth font to spell out names in our family.
Once weeded, the designs are ready to be applied.
I preheated my blanks for 5 seconds.
I then applied my design in the optimal location on my blank and proceeded to apply heat with the EasyPress Mini using firm pressure for 30 seconds. Then peel the plastic when still warm.
Isn’t it darling?! It adds such a personal touch to our Thanksgiving table.
I quick little shout out to Trader Joe’s for having these beautiful pumpkins!
My rustic place cards fit in with the centerpiece of pumpkins, berries and eucalyptus.
With the holidays coming up, these easy Thanksgiving place cards are such a cute idea of adding personality to your dinner table! And the Cricut Easy Press Mini is compact enough to take on the road with you during holiday vacations so you can continue to craft and create fun things for your special celebrations!
