Candice, great tip with not doing anything intricate! I cut one snowflake...and my fabric kept bunching up and it would mess up the cutting. That was on a brand new mat, too. I ended up just cutting it out on paper, and then tracing it. Going to use the Cricut markers next time, I think.
I had to iron the heat 'n bond FOREVER!!! The instructions said 5-8 seconds or something short like that but I really had to do it for like a minute. Overall, I'm happy with how it turned out and will be doing more in the near future!
