Valentine's Day Tea Towel Step-by-Step Guide
Step Two - Design Space Changes
In Design Space you will want to adjust the sizing to fit your tea towel.
Go to the templates in Design Space and find a template that closely resembles your tea towel and select it.
This will give you a template on your Canvas to act as a guide when sizing your project.
Please note: Templates do not cut or print with your project, they act a a guide only.
After you click on Make it, make sure you mirror your design, especially if you used words. This is something that is easy to forget to do. So please, double-check your work.
Now go ahead and cut your design.
Step Three - Ironing on the Design
Look up the heat guide for your type of vinyl and your surface. For example, you could look up Terry Towel and Patterned Iron-on to get the right temperature and time for ironing-on your design.
If you have layers, iron on one layer at a time but make sure you protect the underneath layer so it does not bleed through on get stuck on your iron.
Step Four - The Finishing Touches
Wait for your design to cool if you used a cool peel and then take off the protective layer.
If it is a warm-peel, you will still need to let the design cool a bit.
If your design will not peel properly, wait a little bit longer to see if it peels. If you are still having issues, press it on again.

This Valentine's Day Tea Towel is an easy project, especially good when you are just starting out. The best part was the fact that you were able to use the Heat Guide provided by Cricut. The heat guide certainly makes it easier to get the right heat and even if your material does not release as it should, you can always heat it again.
I hope you enjoyed this project as much as I did.
