DIY Funny Gag Gift Toilet Paper Tutorial With A Cricut Mini Heat Press & Heat Transfer Vinyl


Hey there. Welcome to my crafty space. Today I’m going to show you how to turn
an ordinary roll of toilet paper into the best gift that you can take to
a white elephant Christmas party. Stay tuned. So you’re basically gonna start with
just an ordinary roll of Charmin toilet paper. You can buy these in bulk at
Costco if you’re gonna make a lot of them. And let’s go over to the computer and
I’ll show you how I work out the design of the file itself. Alrighty. So we are now at the Silhouette
design studio screen. So this is the SVG file that I
downloaded from hoopmama designs. I’m going to link to it down
in the description below. And basically it’s,
here’s your crappy gift. It’s really funny and it’s
really cute to take to, um, to a Christmas party as a Christmas gift.
And that’s what I really like it for. So here she has it in multiple colors. Just to show you an idea of
how you could do the design, but I’m just going to cut it in
one color for the sake of speed. Just because you know it’s toilet paper. So I’m not going to do so
much design work with it. It’s not like a tee shirt or something. So what I’m gonna do is I like to size
these to fit inside of a four by four square. So all you have to do
is you select the entire design. You can resize it based on
pulling this little square shape. You know, you can pull it, make it bigger, you can push it in and make it smaller. So I don’t know if you guys know already, but silhouette design studio has these
really cool guides that you can pull down. And I like to just kind of, make the size, shape that I
want to fit something into. And I know where I’m gonna
put this on my cutting mat. I’ve already precut my square. I’ve kind of mentioned before that I
like to precut my squares of, you know, vinyl or whatever I’m working with. Some people like to just use the whole
sheet and then cut out a particular spot of it. I don’t, I like to cut
the size that I’m working with. So basically when you are
working with heat transfer vinyl, you have to cut it in reverse because
you’re cutting on the backside of the material. So I select my shape, right click and flip horizontally. So that is going to mirror the image. So don’t forget to mirror because then
it will cut your design out backwards if you forget to do that. So you’re going to go over to your
send panel and you can see that this is already set up with the correct
cut lines. It looks great. That is exactly what
I want. But over here, my materials are not correct.
So my Cameo 4 is selected. That is the right machine, but the is
not correct. So I’m going to go up here, select the correct heat transfer
material. It is smooth heat transfer. I’m just gonna use black. I’m going to use auto cut. It’s recognizing that I have
a regular blade in there. I also have the auto blade in
there, so that’s correct as well. So the machine is recognizing the right
tools. The cut setting is correct. I leave this on the standard settings
because that works well for me. Some people like to make adjustments. You might need to make an adjustment
based on the type of material that you’re using or the particular brand.
Just go ahead and do a test cut, using this button right down here to make
sure that it weeds correctly when you are using a new material. So once you
have your mat loaded into your machine, you’re going to hit send to start
cutting. So let’s go back to the machine. Okay, so we’re going to go back
to the machine. Like I said, I like to pre cut my
shapes, put it on the mat, and you’re just gonna line up your
mat with this little gray line here. You’re going to hit
arrow, to load your mat and I’m going to hit send. All right, so that’s done. We’re going to take that off. What we do is when you’re
working with heat transfer vinyl, you’re gonna weed away the
parts that you’re not gonna use. So sometimes you do have a little spot
like this that might get stuck because of something either on your mat or
something didn’t cut all the way through. It’s okay. It’s totally normal. You can just use your Exacto knife
to kind of make the cut correctly. Okay, so here’s what the design
looks like. Once you’ve weeded it. I’m gonna use my cricut mini press, to go ahead and iron that
onto the toilet paper. So I’ll show you how I do that in just
one second. What you want to do is pull out a few sheets,
fold it over a little bit, go ahead and place your design
right on the toilet paper, and then just iron right on it. Just go over and just little by little
here and you can see the heat transfer vinyls going right into the
toilet paper. It’s very easy. You’re just going to peal it
right off gently. Remember, you are dealing with toilet paper. You roll that back up and that’s that. Okay, so that’s it. You can see how
quick and easy that is to create. It makes a great gift for
coworkers, a gag gift, a white elephant Christmas
party, gift exchange, anything that you need to just take
something different, unique and funny to. This was an SVG file. I don’t
