Step 3

You'll be taken straight through to the mat preview screen bypassing the design canvas.

Change the “Materials Size” to A4 as you will be drawing on to printer/copier paper, then click “Continue”.

Step 4

Place the printer/copier paper on to a blue LightGrip mat and roller over it with a Cricut Brayer or scraper tool.

Step 9

Once the machine has finished, unload the mat and carefully remove the design. To do this, flip the mat over so that it is face down, then slowly and craefully peel away the mat from the paper.

Step 10

Secure the design to each of the coasters using Cricut's Heat Resistant tape. This will ensure the design stays put while the heat is applied using your EasyPress and that you get a crisp design.

Step 11

Follow the settings from Cricut's online EasyPress Heat Guide (www.cricut.com/en_us/heatguide) to set the time and temperature for your EasyPress.

Top Tip: When working with Infusible Ink make sure that your EasyPress covers the whole design.

Press your coasters stacking as per the instructions in the online Heat Guide.

Step 12

Leave your coaster to cool completely before revealing your design.
