Now it is time to do some cork board DIY decorating. Once your iron-on has been weeded, trim the carrier sheet as close as possible to your design with some scissors. Then lay out your pieces on your cork board.
You will need the Cricut EasyPress to add these pieces to your cork board. Look up the time and temperature on the Cricut Interactive Guide for cork. Set the time and temperature on your EasyPress and allow it to heat up until it beeps.
You will need to protect the cork surface from the heat of the EasyPress as well. You can use the Cricut Iron-on Protective Sheet or some parchment paper for this.
Lay the protective covering over your iron-on and cork board then put your EasyPress on top. Hit the “C” button to start the countdown timer. Press down with firm pressure on the handle. Once your time is complete, move the EasyPress to the next area. It is okay to overlap areas during your presses.
Once you have pressed all areas, check to see if the iron-on has completely adhered. If it hasn’t, then just repeat the pressing process. Continue this until you can remove the carrier sheets from your designs.
Once all of your iron-on is stuck and your carrier sheets have been removed, your DIY cork board is complete and ready to hang on the wall.
Be sure to add your custom thumbtacks to complete this DIY framed cork board.
