Use the scraper from your tool set to smooth the design onto your mug, and then carefully lift the transfer tape, making sure your design adheres to the mug.
6 Ways To Get Kids Involved In These Projects
- Design. Ask your child to do some snooping to find out some of the things their teachers like, and then allow them to choose a different design for each teacher. Cricut Design Space has lots of ideas to choose from!
- Color. Whether you’re choosing your child’s teacher’s favorite color, or making selections based on design, this is a great way to get your child involved in the process.
- Cutting. While I don’t recommend having younger kids use the Cricut Portable Trimmer, they can easily cut around designs with scissors once they have been printed on vinyl. Depending on their age, they can also cut pieces of transfer tape, ensuring the pieces are big enough for each design.
- Lifting. Older kids can help lift pieces of vinyl from printed designs, but use caution when allowing children to using weeding tools as they are very sharp.
- Applying transfer tape. From removing the backing on transfer tape, to applying it over-top of your designs, this is another easy way to get your kids involved!
- Scraping. Once you’ve completed your project, your child can help scrape pieces of vinyl off machinery, tabletops, etc.
These beginner Cricut projects are the perfect way to get your feet wet if you’ve just purchased a Cricut Explore 3 and Cricut EasyPress 2, and as you can see from the tips above, you can get kids of all ages involved in the process.
