If you're new to Cricut, making this tote will be an eye-opening experience. Customization becomes so much easier! 

When you're using the Cricut design space, we found it a lot easier to align the text on the computer in design space rather than on the tote bag, so make sure to attach the layers of the text while on the computer in the design space program (you'll find that button on the bottom right corner).  

Then (as the name suggests), for all iron on decals make sure to turn on the "iron on" button while in design space so the text will mirror and look like the image below.

Next is weeding and this only took about 5 minutes to get the text to be the only thing left behind on the transparent plastic sheet.

Before you put on the iron on decal, make sure to warm up the area with the iron (do not steam). This helps to get the iron on vinyl decal to stick better.

Place a cotton sheet over the iron on decal and iron onto the bag at the highest heat. This took a bit longer than we thought it would, but the decal finally stuck.

Slowly pull away the transparent sheet to make sure all the letters on the decal have ironed on. After pulling the plastic sheet off, place the cotton sheet over the decal and iron on at high heat just to make sure the decal is set.
