  • 1 Cricut machine Iron-on/HTV can be cut on any Cricut machine

  • 1 EasyPress mat or folded towel
  • 1 Weeding Tool optional

What You Will Need

  • 1 piece Iron-on/HTV any color/pattern
  • 1 pair Oven Mitt or other surface to monogram


  • The first thing you need to do is gather your materials and supplies.
  • Once you have your supplies and materials gathered head into Design Space and either create your Monogram using a favorite font or choose from their monogram images/fonts.
  • Size your design to fit what you're putting it on and cut it out with your Cricut machine. Make sure you place your material shiny side down on the mat and mirror your image before cutting.
  • After you've cut your image remove the HTV from the mat and using a weeding tool remove all the excess material from your image (weeding) making sure to get inside letters and any other small places.
  • Consult the Cricut Heat Guide or your material packaging to find out the time and temperature to press your material.
  • Lay your project onto the EasyPress mat or folded towel before pressing.
  • Preheat your base material to remove any moisture that may be in your material.
  • Following the instructions for your HTV or using the Heat Guide apply your HTV/Iron-on to your project.
  • After pressing allow your HTV to cool (how long will depend on the material you're using) and then remove the carrier sheet.
  • Once your carrier sheet is removed it's time to admire your personalized project.
