Design, cut, and weed
Note: For multi-layer designs, Glow-in-the-Dark Iron-On should be the top layer only. Keep this in mind as you create your design.
- Customize your design in Design Space.
- Select your load style (On Mat) and the Glow-in-the-Dark Iron-On setting.
- Make sure to mirror your design in Design Space before cutting.
- Place material (shiny liner side down) onto Cricut StandardGrip Machine Mat.
- Slide mat under the mat guides and up against the machine rollers.
- Press the load button.
- Press Go and watch the magic happen!
- When the cut is complete, press unload.
- Use a weeder to remove excess iron-on from in and around your design, leaving design on the liner.
Note: For precise time and temp settings for your project, always refer to our online Heat Guide or Cricut Heat app (for Cricut EasyPress 3 and Cricut Hat Press). Depending on your base material and heat-transfer material choice, settings will be unique for every project.
- Place design on your base material, shiny liner side up. Press as instructed (see Heat Guide or Cricut Heat app).
- Leaving the liner in place, flip the base material over and apply heat to the back of the design as instructed (see Heat Guide or Cricut Heat app).
- Peel the liner away from the design at the temperature instructed (see Heat Guide or Cricut Heat app).
Tip: In most cases, the liner adhesive will hold your design in place during transfer. However, if needed or instructed, use Heat Resistant Tape (when using Cricut EasyPress Mini) or Strong Heat Resistant Tape (when using Cricut Hat Press) to secure your design in place.
Follow care instructions found in the Cricut Heat Guide or Cricut Heat app (for Cricut EasyPress 3 and Cricut Hat Press).
