Today’s post is all about how to use a heat press. I have talked quite a bit about the Cricut EasyPress but what are the other alternatives? One is buying a full-sized heat press. These machines are meant for home use but are more of an industrial machine. They heat press iron-on material to shirts, mugs, plates, hats, and more. I am going to run through how to use one today and then we will have another post about the pros and cons if you are wondering what type of machine to purchase.
I thought I would share some table decoration ideas for both Thanksgiving and Christmas today. I am going to use the same elements for both tables with just a few additions. That way you can shop once and have the supplies you need to decorate your table for both holidays. Then, as a bonus, you will only have one set of supplies to store at the end of the season! You will also want to scroll to the bottom of this post where I have a gift card giveaway that you can use to purchase your supplies as well.
