The Cricut EasyPress Mini is the Newest Addition to the Cricut EasyPress Family, and a Must Have for Cricut Fans! #cricutcreated  #ad

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Cricut. The opinions and text are all mine.

Introducing the new Cricut EasyPress Mini -- this little thing is going to make your "small space"craft projects so much easier!!!

To say that I am a Cricut fanatic is an understatement.  I ended up clearing out half my home space to make room for a crafting area, as I hated having to box up and pack away my Cricut EasyPress 2 and accessories, which I would set up at the dining room table whenever I got an idea for a craft to make.  I wanted to have a designated Cricut space, and thanks to my husband, who helped move around my "office/craft space" I can now retreat to my "girl cave" of sorts and get my Cricut crafting on without having to pull out my Cricut EasyPress 2 machine and supplies. 

Lately, I have found myself getting lost in Cricut projects as I keep wanting to try new things I have seen other Cricut crafters making.  I already told my family and friends to expect handmade gifts this year, thanks to my Cricut EasyPress 2 and now my new Cricut EasyPress Mini, which has made all the small projects a breeze, thanks to its small size and ability to get into hard to reach spaces like pockets, sleeves, hat rims and even pockets. 

So, what is the Cricut EasyPress Mini and why should you own it if you enjoy making things with your Cricut machine?

The new Cricut EasyPress Mini is the perfect companion to any size EasyPress 2; it can easily tackle tight spaces, hard to reach spaces, or uncommon objects and projects, like hats and shoes.  It even works great on stuffed animals!

It offers the same benefits and technology as the Cricut EasyPress 2: even heat plate and easy-to-use heat settings for effortless heat transfers, but is perfect for all your unique and small-space craft projects. And, with all the new iron-on product additions to the Cricut line including mesh, mosaic, and the Everyday Iron-On mini-samplers, the Cricut EasyPress Mini will have you wanting to make and gift unique handmade gifts, too, this holiday season.

"Unusual objects and improbable projects are no longer a challenge! Cricut EasyPress Mini™ makes professional heat-transfer results possible for even your most shapely objects and projects, including baby shoes, hats, stuffed animals, and more. Its thoughtful, compact design makes it effortless to curve with contours, get between buttons, and squeeze into seams. Three simple heat settings take on every possible heat-transfer project, including permanent Infusible Ink transfers that become one with the base material. With an extra layer of protection on its ceramic heat plate, Cricut EasyPress Mini effortlessly glides over oddly shaped surfaces to transfer your design. Safety features include an insulated base and an auto-shutoff feature. It's lightweight, portable, easy to store, and compatible with major brands of HTV, iron-on, and the entire Infusible Ink family of products. It’s a perfect complement to any Cricut cutting machine.

The Cricut EasyPress Mini doesn't take up much room, and would be perfect to have next to your sewing machine as you work,  and it's so easy to use!  I also wanted to mention that thCricut EasyPress Mini can also  be used with the new Infusible Ink line from Cricut, too!  So, with all the different iron-on options available from Cricut, as well as the Infusible Ink line and sewing possibilities, the Cricut EasyPress Mini is a must have for Cricut users.  Once you start using the Cricut EasyPress Mini you will find yourself coming up with fun new ways to use this EasyPress Mini to add little embellishments and small touches to those hard to reach and small craft projects you may be working on.

While Christmas is still a little ways away, I wanted to share a project I completed the other night using my new Cricut EasyPress Mini, and that I can't wait to use and show off at my upcoming Thanksgiving dinner with family.  Thanks to the EasyPress Mini I was able to apply even the smallest of leaf cut outs created using the Cricut DesignSpace, to make this lovely fall-inspired table runner, which will adorn our dining room table on Thanksgiving.

After seeing the rose gold foil iron on roll at Michaels, I started thinking about fall-inspired craft projects I could do. Then, it hit me...why not make a table runner and matching cloth napkins for Thanksgiving?  After coming up with this idea I found myself wondering how to press the small leaf cutouts to the cloth fabric. 

If you follow my blog then you have probably seen a handful of Cricut posts/reviews featuring the Cricut EasyPress products I own and use to apply iron ons and vinyl transfers to things.  But, the two EasyPress products I have would be too big for the table runner project I had in mind, as the cutouts I planned to iron on were only small and didn't need a large or mid-size press to iron on to the fabric.  

Then, it hit me, this was the perfect project to try out with the new Cricut EasyPress Mini which recently joined the Cricut EasyPress family.  Thanks to the kind folks at Cricut, they sent along the new Cricut EasyPress Mini to try out, and I have been like a kid in a candy store, having so much fun using this and creating so many fun and unique gifts for family and friends to enjoy.

It only took a matter of minutes to create the leaf cutouts in the Cricut Design Space.  You can access the public file I shared here:, which if FREE to use.  

After cutting the leaf shapes out onto my rose gold foil iron on sheet, I peeled them off and layed them out on my craft table, while I heated up the Cricut EasyPress Mini. 

Once the Cricut EasyPress Mini was warmed up, which takes no time at all, I started pressing the leaf cutouts sparingly around the table runner, which I found a 2-pack over at Amazon for under $7.00. 

In under 5 minutes I had a lovely new table runner ready for Thanksgiving.  

And, once that was done, I cut out more leafs using the template I created and shared with you above from the Cricut Design Space and got to work on applying the rose gold foil iron-on leaf cutouts to cloth napkins I picked up to add to my Thanksgiving table.  

All in all, it took about a half hour from start to finish to create the leaf template in the Cricut Design Space to cutting out and using the new Cricut EasyPress Mini to apply the leaves to the table runner and 8 napkins.  I was so pleased with how everything turned out, and can't wait for Thanksgiving to get here so that I can set my table and surprise family who will be gathering around to enjoy a homecooked family and time together.

The Cricut EasyPress Mini is available now through the online Cricut store, as well as at Michaels craft stores and through their online store.  It retails for only $49.99, and is a steal if you ask me, as it will make your life so much easier, tackling small projects and hard to press areas you need to add your Cricut iron-on designs to.  So, what are you waiting for?  If you don't already own the new Cricut EasyPress Mini, now is the time to purchase it, and start getting crafty making handmade gifts to give this holiday season, that will be cherished for years to come.
