I love how quick and easy it is to make Infusible Ink Coasters with the Cricut Joy!
The Cricut Joy is Cricut smaller most portable crafting machine. Though the Joy is small and you can only use the Joy-sized fine point blade, you can still make soo many fun projects with it. Yesterday, wanted to make a fun personalized gift for our friends whom we are housesitting for in Washington over the Summer. I had brought my Cricut joy and select supplies (including my 9×9 Easypress 2) with me so I could do this.
After looking through my supplies and materials, I decided to make our friends some fun Infusible Ink coasters with a W on them since their last name starts with that letter. I had several different Joy-sized Infusible ink designs and I picked a fun green pattern (technically it was a Mug Press Infusible ink sheet but it worked just fine for the coasters.)
The Infusible Ink sheets are not smart materials so you do need to use a mat. It only took me 1.3 sheets to do all four coasters so I had some Infusible Ink left over for another craft! You can make your own following the tutorial below or pin this post to your Cricut DIY board on Pinterest to make later on.

I love how the coasters turned out. I loved even more how fast they were to make. It took less than 20 minutes from design to finished coasters using my Cricut Joy & 9×9 Easypress 2 (which was large enough for me to press all 4 coasters at the same time.
I now want to make some more coasters for our family once we get back home. I just am not sure if I want to do a fun colorful design or a classy monogram. What do you think?
