How To Make A Birth Stat Elephant

To make this project you’ll need the following supplies, along with a Cricut Explore Air 2 or Cricut Maker.

First, open up this free Design Space cut file (HERE). Swap the stats to personalize it to your own needs. Once it looks good (keep things the same size!), go ahead and cut it out on Cricut Iron On Vinyl. Make sure your vinyl is on the mat shiny side down and the image is mirrored. Then remove the vinyl from the mat and weed the image.


Cricut EasyPress Mini projects


Heat up the Cricut EasyPress Mini to the desired heat setting referencing the Cricut Heat Guide. I used the medium heat setting.


Lay the elephant on the EasyPress Mat and arrange the birth stats how you want them on each ear.

Then, use the EasyPress Mini to press the Cricut Iron On Vinyl onto each ear. Move the EasyPress Mini around and be sure to get all areas of the vinyl. Do this for 15 seconds. Allow to cool and test peel the backing and be sure everything stuck well. If not, repeat for 15 seconds and try again. Then do the opposite ear the same way.
