Making Tote Bags with Cricut Easy Press 2

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Cricut. The opinions and text are all mine.

With the Holiday season coming up, I wanted to showcase an easy project that might be fun for little ones to receive this year that uses the Cricut Easy Press 2. I wanted to make my boys some tote bags that they could use for whatever their hearts desired. I don’t know about the little ones in your life, but mine LOVE bags. They love having a way to carry around their treasures, stuffed animals, things they want to hide from their brother, you name it!

I started by searching the internet for SVG files. This is a specific file type that you can use to cut out designs on your Cricut Explore Air 2 or other Cricut cutter. It stands for scalable vector graphics, which is essentially design talk for simplified shapes that can be resized easily. I found a few that I thought my boys might like and from those they chose a Death Star and Pikachu.

We used my Cricut Explore Air 2 to cut out these files on Everyday Iron-on Vinyl by Cricut in their desired colors. Don’t forget to mirror your image when doing iron on!!! Then the magic happened. Guys, the Easy Press 2 is AMAZING! It is easy to use, has a clear display, and I could even do it one handed while holding my baby! 🙂 Cricut has a heat guide available on their website when using the Easy Press 2. You chose the base cloth and then it tells you exactly how to set up your Easy Press 2 for success.

We used these tote bags for trick or treating and I know they will be the best library bags ever. What would you use a tote bag for??
