Circut Appliques

I have been wanting to try this for a while. I think that appliques are so cute. My first attempt a few months ago was unsuccessful to say the least. Recently I came across some much better instructions so I decided to give it another try.
Step 1: iron Wonder Under to the back side of your fabric.

Step 2: Stick the fabric onto your (very) sticky Cricut cutting mat and cut out your design. Your blade depth should be set at 6, pressure on high (5)and the speed on low (2).

Step 3: Peel the backing off of the Wonder Under and place your cut out where you want it. I put mine on a t-shirt for my daughter.

Step 4: Iron the applique for about 15 seconds with a damp cloth over it. The cloth should be dry when it is done.
All Done!!

Here are the Valentine cards I made for my daughter's kindergarten class exchange. They are so cute! The entire card/envelope was made using Stampin' Up products.

Turn An Inexpensive Item Into A Cute Gift

I found these cute purses for little girls. After personalizing them they look like an expensive custom gift item. Great inexpensive gift items. More inexpensive items that have been personalized. They turned out very cute!
All of these items cost $1.00 each and were personalized with cut vinyl. It doesn't get much cheaper than that.
