7 Easy Steps for Using Transfer Tape

Are you using Transfer Tape (Paper)? I know I had a couple of questions on how to use it this week.

Here are some easy ways: (This is for using Vinyl cut designs)

Step 1: Weed your design right on your mat. Weeding simply means to remove the parts you do not want from your cut design

Step 2: Cut a piece of Transfer Tape to fit over your weeded design, then remove the backing

Step 3: Place the sticky side down and on top of your design, starting in the center and gently sticking is down. You can use your Cricut scraper tool or Brayer tool to make sure the transfer tape is really sticking to your design.

Step 4: Pull your entire design off the mat (if you are using vinyl there will be a backing you can pull up from the mat.

Step 5: Remove the vinyl backing gently making sure your design is stuck to the transfer tape.

Step 6: Place your design on the surface you are using and push it down with your scraper tool

Step 7: Gently remove the transfer tape making sure your design is stuck to your surface.

I hope this helps!

      A friend of mine in the Uk just bought a Cricut and has done more than I have with vinyls than I have and I have owned Cricut a since the original machines! Thanks for this post and making it so simple and straight forward. I have no excuse to not start crafting.
