Sharing is caring!

Last week Cricut released the Cricut EasyPress Mini Zen Blue. The Cricut Mini EasyPress is a smaller version of the popular Cricut EasyPress, designed specifically for small and intricate heat transfer projects. And as a dog owner and avid crafter, I couldn’t wait to try it out on a project: making a personalized bandanna for my furry friend Kokomo.

Cricut EasyPress Great For Small Craft Projects

The first thing I noticed about the EasyPress Mini is its compact size making it perfect for small projects like onesies, hats, and of course, dog bandannas. The thoughtful compact design makes the Easypress mini easy to store and portable which is always a bonus for crafters.

One of the main features that sets the EasyPress Mini apart from the larger cricut heat press is its precision tip. This allows for more accuracy when working with small designs or intricate details. As someone who has struggled with getting heat transfer vinyl to adhere properly to small designs in the past, I was excited to put this feature to the test.

Making A Personalized Bandanna For Pets

I started by designing and cutting out my dog’s name using heat transfer vinyl. I cut my dog’s name using the cricut cutting machine. Then, I preheated the EasyPress Mini to the recommended temperature for my chosen material (in this case, cotton).

The device heated up quickly and had three heat settings. I went with the highest temperature option for my heat transfer project.

Heating The EasyPress Mini

Heating the Cricut EasyPress Mini was super simple, you simply press the power button and select the temperature you want. The EasyPress Mini heated up super fast compared to a regular iron which I’ve used in the past for small projects.

Once the EasyPress Mini was heated, I placed it on top of my design and pressed down for around 90 seconds. The precision tip made it easy to control where the heat was applied, ensuring that all parts of the design were evenly heated.

After pressing, I let the vinyl cool for a few seconds before carefully peeling off the backing sheet. And to my delight, the vinyl was perfectly adhered to the bandanna, with no lifting or wrinkling.

Cricut EasyPress Mini Review

Overall, I am impressed with the Cricut EasyPress Mini and its performance on this project. Its compact size and precision tip make it a great tool for small and intricate heat transfer projects like this one.

And as an added bonus, Kokomo, my pup looks adorable in her personalized bandanna. I can’t wait to use the EasyPress Mini for more projects, both for my furry friend and for other small crafting projects.

One of the things I love about the Cricut Easypress is that I can create gifts and items for my family members without having to purchase items from major brands. For example my brother loves football shirts and we can create personalised tops and the heat transfer results look amazing.

You can use uniquely shaped objects and projects and the lightweight portable easy to store tool can be used quickly and effectively.
