You Can Use Iron-on for That??

March 16th, 2018 • Contributor: Kayla Brasher from Kayla Makes

Hey Cricuteers, Kayla here today and I have a confession, I love iron-on! It's by far my personal favorite when it comes to Cricut cutting materials. From iron-on lite to glitter, foil and holographic sparkle, there are so many options and even more possibilities when it comes to this versatile material.

Today, I'm showing you some fun ways you can use iron-on that aren't your typical t-shirt or baby onesie. Let's jump right in!

Hats

Iron-On lite adheres nicely to baseball caps. I used a mini iron to create the hat above and it worked perfectly for me.

These bride tribe hats by Something Turquoise were created using the coolest trick! Click over to see how they used one of their Cricut tools to get the iron-on to stick.

Wood

I can easily remember the first time I saw someone use iron-on on a wood surface. I was blown away! Think of all the cute things you can make! It has a lot more staying power than adhesive vinyl and is just as easy to apply.

For this decorative wood slice, I used Cricut's foil iron-on in gold and my EasyPress.

Paper

This Jungle Rules nursery wall hanging is a project from Design Space. Cat (one of Cricut's FIT scholarship winners) used Iron-On Lite on a sheet of paper to create this custom look.

Last fall I added gold iron-on to a sheet of cardstock to create this print. It has the look of a foiled print without the hassle or cost of foiling.

Neoprene

These Bridal Party Koozies from Something Turquoise are super cute and make the best wedding favors. They opted for glitter iron-on but any of the varieties will stick well to neoprene.

These neoprene popsicle holders were all over the place last summer. Why didn't anyone think of this when I was a kid?!

  1. What did you use to apply the iron-on material to the papers (rules and the custom print)? An iron? The Easy Press?

    Also, what about the shoes?

    Thanks for the help…they are all cute, inventive ways to use iron-on
