When you’re looking for supplies for your next Cricut project, do you ever think about the dollar store? I learned that I could make an infusible ink placemat!
Dollar Store Cricut Crafts
Kara challenged a group of us to make a store Cricut project, and I love what everyone came up with. Click each link below for details.
I made a placemat that we could bring out for fun celebrations at home. Birthday? Good game? Stuck something out to the end? Get out the You’re a Star Today placemat!
I found a placemat and discovered it was made from polyester! So I knew I wanted to try infusible ink on it.
Supplies to make an infusible ink placemat
- Placemat with high polyester (this one is 97%)

1. Once you have the file you can upload to Design Space. Cut it as is, or slice it out of a background shape.
2. Place the infusible ink sheet on a mat with the colored paper side up. MIRROR and cut the design.
3. Peel away the extra ink sheet pieces.
4. Preheat the EasyPress to 385 degrees and 40 seconds.
5. Lay a piece of white cardstock on the EasyPress mat.
6. Use a lint roller to remove any dust or fibers from the top of the placemat.
7. Position the placemat on the cardstock and tape down the cut ink design. Secure with heat resistant tape to keep flat.
8. Cover design with butcher paper and press for 40 seconds.
9. When cool enough to touch, remove the butcher paper, tape, and ink sheet.
