Simple Holiday Gift Idea with Cricut. I was recently sent the Cricut BrightPad, and I cannot even begin to tell you how useful it is! It makes weeding vinyl a snap, my son has used it to trace projects, and I have a few more ideas to try with it as well. Not only is it super useful, it’s very durable as well.I just left Pennsylvania after spending several days with my bloggy bestie, Pineapple Paper Company. While I visited, I got to snuggle her sweet newborn, make tons of marshmallows with her bigger kiddos, play with play doh with her threenager, see Bad Moms Christmas, and play in the snow! It was an amazing, fun filled week, and we even got to play with her Cricut Maker, EasyPress, and BrightPad machines…for real, we love our Cricut products so much we played while the baby slept the other day.On a quick trip to Target, we stumbled across the cutest plaid felt bags at Target in the Dollar Spot, and we KNEW we needed to make them even more adorable with Cricut Iron On Vinyl. So, that’s what we did! We measured the space below the handles and it was just about 6 inches wide. We decided not to monogram the bags, although that would have been cute too, and went with a simple block text and full name. Once the Maker was done working magic, we weeded each name with the BrightPad. The BrightPad and Cricut tools made quick work of our weeding.

Next we were ready to place the Iron On Foil on the bags and EasyPress them on. We initially set the EasyPress at 330 for 30 seconds, but we found it needed a little less heat (and a few more seconds in a few spots) with the EasyPress to get the letters to stick. Once the transfer paper was cool to touch, we carefully removed it from the bags and voila! We have the cutest bags to gift our friends and family.
