My daughter specifically requested a purple unicorn backpack with her initials. Mama bear delivered thanks to Cricut!
Cricut has so many options when it comes to iron-on vinyl. My favorite has been the Mesh iron-on vinyl which is what I used to create the monogram. The Mesh iron-on vinyl comes in glitter and solid colors. I used a combination of Everyday iron-on and glitter iron-on vinyl. Many of Cricut iron-on vinyl comes with StrongBond™ Guarantee. This means that when Cricut Iron-On is used as directed, you’ll be completely satisfied with the results. If not, they’ll replace it for free. Seriously!
Monogrammed Unicorn Backpack using Cricut
Here is what you’ll need to make a Monogrammed Unicorn Backpack:
- Cricut Maker
- Cricut LightGrip mat
- Cricut EasyPress 2
- Cricut EasyPress mat
- Mesh iron-on vinyl
- Glitter iron-on vinyl
- Weeding tools
- Backpack of choice
- Cricut Design Space image #M6D64A1E
Open Cricut Design Space, select the machine you are using, then click new project. Click images and find design #M6D64A1E – click insert images. Click on “Text” and write the initials or the name you would like to use on the backpack. Choose the font you would like to use. I used Extreme Font – Little League for the initials.
Next, position the unicorn horn over the letter of choice. Size it to how you would like it.
Click shapes on the left-hand side and insert a heart and star. Resize it to what you need. Duplicate or copy the hearts and stars.
Time to send to cut! Be sure to mirror your images since we’re using iron-on vinyl. Depending on the iron-on vinyl you are using place it on the light grip mat. Select the type of iron-on vinyl you are using and send to cut. The Maker will walk you through each step of the cutting process.
Remove the iron-on vinyl from the mat and weed using your weeding tools. Use the Cricut Heat Guide to determine the temperature you need for the material you’ll be placing the iron-on vinyl. Arrange the iron-on vinyl on the backpack and use the EasyPress to adhere to the backpack.
The Cricut Maker makes it so easy to personalize all the things for my kids this back to school season. Bye-bye are the days that my kids lose their lunch box – their name is going to be all over the box! Notebooks, pencils and more can be easily personalized with the Maker. Use the Maker to make all those back to school shirts too!
