Cricut EasyPress 2 12×10 Product Review

The Cricut EasyPress 2 “12×10” makes it simple to create your own and personalized t-shirts, totes, banners, and so much more. My nieces had an older model we use to use for crafts and I must say the Cricut EasyPress 2 has come a long ways.

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

While using the Cricut EasyPress 2 I noticed the heat seems more stable than the older model. It heats up a lot faster and heats up to 400 instead of 350 per for large projects. Since I had two new black totes and a red t-shirt I’ve being dying to customize. We brained storm what colors would work best on easy of the items than immediately went to work. We decided to go with the Cricut Everyday Iron-On and pull the colors from a sample pack I had on-hand. Make sure you use theEasyPress mat. It’s an essential companion to the Easy Press unit (sold separately) protects your flat work area for flawless iron-on transfers. The thick, high-quality silicone is heat-resistant up to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. This craft mat is designed for heat-transfer projects, glue-gun projects and more.
