martha stewart "happy valentine's day" postage stamp pillow

Not all Valentines need to be paper. Make a cozy Happy Valentine’s Day Postage Stamp Pillow to sweeten your decor.
Step 1

Project Note: This project makes one Valentine’s Day pillow with a postal theme. The finished size is approximately 11" x 11" (27.9 cm x 27.9 cm).

Open a new project in Cricut® Design Space™ and then click ‘Images’ in the left panel.

Step 2

To find the designs:

   -  Enter ‘#M8493939’ in the search field and select the image.
   -  Enter ‘#M8493951 in the search field and select the image.
   -  Click ‘Insert Images’ in the lower right of your screen.
Step 3

Size the designs to fit, as you want them to appear on your pillow cover.

TIP: SelectCustomize’ to alter the design and then use the tools in the Edit panel to make changes before you cut.

Step 4
Click ‘Make It’ in the upper right corner of your screen.
Step 5
In your preview screen, check ‘Mirror’ in the left panel to reverse your image.
Step 6

Now, click ‘Continue’ in the bottom right corner of your screen and choose your material.

TIP: Always make sure to select the most accurate material available for your Cricut® projects, so your machine knows how deep to cut into your material.

Step 7
Place the iron-on material onto your cutting mat, shiny-side down. Load the mat into your Cricut® machine, then press the blinking Cricut® icon to start cutting.
Step 8
Once your machine is done cutting, use scissors to cut your design from the iron-on material roll. Next, use your weeder tool to remove all the excess material around and inside your design. You’ll be left with just the reversed design on the clear plastic carrier sheets, which are slightly sticky.
Step 9
Use a your weeder tool to remove the negative pieces, so just your design remains on the clear liner.
Step 10

Apply the iron-on layers to your project using a Cricut EasyPress™ and Cricut EasyPress™ mat with our Interactive Guide for the perfect time and temp settings; or use a household iron or heat press and a press cloth.
