This post first appeared over at HSN’s The Buzz where I am a contributor.  Learn how to transform a plain pillow into a custom Valentine’s Day pillow, using some glitter iron-on and your Cricut EasyPress!

With your Cricut machine and some glitter iron-on you can create your own custom Valentine pillow in just a few minutes. This is a great project for beginners and is also the perfect gift to give a friend – change the color of the pillow or the iron-on to customize it even more! {FTC disclaimer – this post contains affiliate links which means I may make a small commission on items purchased – at no additional cost to you!}

HOW TO MAKE VALENTINE’S DAY PILLOW

In Cricut Design Space click on the shapes button and click on the heart shape.

Size your heart based on the size of the pillow, and cut with your Cricut. *Don’t forget when using iron-on to “mirror” the image and put your iron-on shiny side down on your mat!*

 Peel off the excess iron-on and lay your heart on to the pillow with the shiny side facing up.

Use your EasyPress to adhere your heart to the pillow. Since this pillow is already filled (not a pillow cover) be sure to press down firmly.

If your iron-on is large (like mine was) start on one corner of the heart and then move the EasyPress to a different corner until you have adhered the entire iron-on. It is ok if parts of the iron-on get “heated” multiple times.

Let cool for about 30 seconds, peel off the clear film and admire your gorgeous pillow!

You know what is better than finished photos? Behind the scenes photos! I wanted to take some photos on our tan couch and our great dane Baloo was NOT having it.

He wasn’t even supposed to be in the photo – he just came over to let me know he thought it was time for snacks. His face tells you how he feels about photo shoots!

Finally got my photo though!
