A friend recently asked me to help her with some presents for her sweet daughters cheerleading squad. I’ll be sharing a couple of the things I made for them, but wanted to start with the little personalized make-up bags. I used Cricut Infusible Ink and I love it. They turned out so cute, and I love that there is no vinyl. Let me walk you through how I did this.

- Cricut Air or Maker
- Easy Press
- Make Up Bags
- Easy Press Mat
- Infusible Ink Markers in desired colors
- Heat Resistant Tape
- Butcher Paper
- Copy Paper
- Light Grip Mat
First, I made the design in Cricut design space. I always start by drawing the space, in this case the bag, with the correct dimensions. These little makeup bags are 6″ x 8″. Then I used two different fonts – Litesha for the name and Algebra for the word “makeup”. If you are wondering how to make the Litesha font look “right” watch the video!
Once I had the design, I hid the square box and attached the name and the word “makeup” and then set up to print. I put a piece of regular copy paper onto my light grip mat and loaded it into my Explorer Air 2. I followed the cricut instructions for when to change my markers and make sure to MIRROR your project. It will tell you in design space when it’s time to change your marker and what to do with them.
After it was drawn, I filled in the rest of the name with markers.
Then I pressed the design, ink side down, into the bag. I used heat transfer tape to make sure it didn’t move and then I put the Easy Press on 385 for 40 seconds. Put the cardstock between the EasyPress mat and the bags. Place a piece of butcher paper inside the bag and on top of the bag to prevent bleed through.
Viola! Pretty easy considering this is only my second infusible ink project. Check out my first project, Personalized Coasters, here. I love this stuff and can’t wait to do way more with it!
