  • Cricut Maker (available at Cricut, Michaels, and HSN) – this would work just as well with an Explore Air
  • Cricut Light Grip Mat
  • Cricut Iron-On (I used black)
  • Cricut Basic Tool Set
  • Cricut EasyPress Mini
  • paper napkins


  • Choose an image in Cricut Design Space (I share this project in Design Space – the BOO! is for the laminated placemat project) and cut your design from iron-on. Don’t forget to mirror the image and put the iron-on shiny side down!
  • Remove excess iron-on and weed out any iron-on from the spider image.
  • Power on Cricut EasyPress Mini. I used the Cricut Heat Guide to determine my temperature. When the indicator is green the Mini is ready to use!
  • Place spider image on to napkin.
  • Use EasyPress Mini to pre-heat napkin (just one or two seconds), then adhere iron-on. I’ve found I just need about five seconds – if the iron-on doesn’t adhere add heat in 2-3 second increments. You CAN burn the napkin if you leave it on too long so be careful!
  • Remove liner while still warm.
