Infusible Ink Christmas Ornaments
There are some fun holiday infusible ink design sheets or you can use the solid colors that you already have in your infusible ink stash. Don’t forget that the infusible ink sheets are going to be darker after heat is applied. These holiday infusible ink sheets may come as flat sheets of paper instead of in nice boxes like the Cricut infusible ink transfer sheets.
- Create simple designs that will fit on the sublimation blank shapes. I chose super simple designs like JOY and Christmas trees.
- Print and cut your design on the infusible ink paper
- Weed out your excess
- Peel off the plastic covering that comes on most sublimation blanks
- Use heat transfer tape to hold your design in place
How long should use leave the Easy Press for your ornament blanks? The ceramic ornament blanks take longer to bake on than the MDF (medium density fiberboard) ornaments. I typically do about 60 seconds for the MDF but the ceramic tend to take about 3 minutes.
- Use an Easy Press to heat up the paper and seal in the design.
- Repeat for the back side
- Attach a simple rope or colorful ribbon to hang your ornament
- Share with friends and family
Now when I mail Christmas cards this next week, I can drop in an ornament with some of them for an extra surprise!
Have you made any Christmas ornaments with your infusible ink? I’d love to see what you are creating this holiday season!
