How To Make Infusible Ink Mugs With The Cricut Mug Press

Author: Crystal


  • Cricut Stackable Mugs
  • Cricut cutting machine
  • Cricut Infusible Ink Transfer Sheet (I used the Rainbow Watercolor Splash sampler)
  • Cricut Cutting Mat
  • Weeding Tools
  • Cricut Mug Press
  • Cricut EasyPress Mat
  • Cardstock
  • Lint Roller
  • Cricut Heat Resistant Tape
  • Cricut Brayer Tool


  • Click “Make It” and don’t forget to click the mirror slider to mirror your design. Follow the prompts to connect your machine and select your cutting material.
  • Place your Infusible Ink on the mat with the plastic side facing down. I like to use a Strong Grip Mat for Infusible Ink and to use my Cricut Brayer to push my Infusible Ink onto the cutting mat. Cut out your design using your Cricut cutting machine.
  • Weed your design, removing the Infusible Ink from around your design, leaving just your design behind on the clear plastic liner.
  • Turn on your Cricut MugPress. It is set to automatically heat to the correct temperature and to know how long to press your mug for.
  • Clean your mug with either a lint free cloth or a lint roller. Carefully wrap your Infusible Ink wrap around your mug, with the clear plastic notches overlapping inside the handle. You may want to lay your mug on a secure surface like Uniquely Whynot's Tumbler Cradle. Use Heat Resistant Tape to secure your design to your mug. The tighter your Infusible Ink Transfer Sheet is pressed against the mug, the better your transfer results will be.
  • Place your mug in the mug press with the handle sticking out of the slot. Press down the lever on the top of the mug press to close the opening where the handle is sticking out and to start your press. The lights on the top of the Mug Press will show you where you are in the heat cycle and will beep when it's done. When your Mug Press beeps, lift the lever back up to open your Mug Press. Carefully set your mug on a heat safe surface like your EasyPress Mat to cool. Repeat with each of your mugs.
  • When your mug has completely cooled. Peel away the heat resistant tape and Infusible Ink transfer sheet revealing your design beneath!
