When I knew that my boys would be going back to school in person, I knew I needed to get them more masks. I did make a few at the beginning of quarantine, but it was not something I enjoyed making, so I knew I didn’t want to make a bunch more of them. Every time I went out, I would look for masks. I was at Costco one day and found these cute masks, perfect for my two younger kids. When I looked at the fabric content, I just knew I had to try adding Infusible Ink to them. So today, I’m sharing with you, Adding Infusible Ink to Kids Masks.

Adding Infusible Ink to Kids Masks Supplies:
- Masks (I found mine at Costco)
- Cricut Maker, Cricut Explore Air 2, or Cricut Joy
- Cricut Infusible Ink
- Cricut EasyPress Mini
Once you have your supplies gathered together, pick out the Infusible Ink transfer sheet you want to use for the masks. Pick out the designs you’d like to cut, then cut the designs on the Cricut machine.
Once cut, weed the design, place it on the mask, and then place cardstock under the top layer of the mask. Preheat the EasyPress Mini according to the directions found on the Heat Guide.
Place parchment paper over to top of the mask with the Infusible Ink.
Apply heat to the Infusible Ink to transfer it to the mask.
Once you’re finished pressing, remove the parchment paper.
Warm peel the transfer sheet off of the mask.
Once you’ve peeled the transfer sheet off, you’re finished!
For the ones I was making, I put one of my boys names onto the masks, and for the others, I just put some designs that my four year old liked on them.
The orange mask did lighten up a little bit where I applied the heat, and after washing it, it is still lighter, but it really isn’t noticeable when my son wears it.
My boys are super excited about wearing these masks when we go out now! And, they fit my boys much better than the other masks that I had for them.
My Harry Potter loving boy is super excited about wearing this one! I guess if we get to wear masks, then at least he is excited about it, right?
