Questions about how to use scrap materials come up frequently from our members. So, we dug up a few of our favorite ideas from the Cricut community to get you started:
Had fun using Infusible Ink scraps and leftover transfer paper to make an adorable cat and dog mug.
Layered Iron-On (HTV) scraps to create a colorful “Be Kind” shirt.
Here are few tips Megan shared to help ensure your project comes out perfectly:
- Line the scraps up onto a StrongGrip Mat
- Don’t overlap the scraps; just place them super close together
- Cut the design using the iron-on setting
- Weed the design while it’s still on the mat as it helps hold down the individual pieces and allows you to better see the overall design
- Center the weeded strips of vinyl onto the shirt one at a time
- Lay a scrap carrier sheet over all the strips to protect from heat and to make sure they don’t shift while pressing
Completed this fall project using only scrap iron-on (HTV), permanent vinyl, chipboard, and paint.
Used a Design Space project template to make a hair barrette using leftover leather scraps paired with repurposed takeout chopsticks.
Happy making and be sure to post your projects using #CricutScrapChallenge!
