How the heck is it already New Year’s Eve… and we are entering the year 2016! Woah. When did that happen. I remember ringing in 2010 and trying to imagine what my year would be like in 2015. I had a feeling I would have a child by then and boy was I right. 2015 has been a whirlwind of a year for us, and we are excited to ring in the new year and see what 2016 has in store for us. I whipped up this cute shirt for Ryder to where for today and of course throughout 2016 since the shirt doesn’t just apply for 1 day of the year… it’s an all year kind of shirt. Sadly, he’s super sick and the only people who got to see the shirt today was the pediatrician (which they loved it)! If you are heading to a party and want to whip up a quick shirt I invite you to make a “Party like it’s 2016” shirt!
- Cricut Explore
- Cricut Design Space
- Cricut Mat
- Silver Glitter Iron-On Vinyl
- Cricut Tools
- Blue Shirt
- Iron & Ironing Board
- Muslin Cloth
I created the shirt in Cricut Design Space. I used the font Ameila for the “party like it’s” and Bebas Neuea for the 2016. Once I had my design in place I attached the 3 text lines together followed by welding them together. Welding them makes the cursive look seamless. And since I was cutting all one color it was fine.
Now time to cut. Remember to select “mirror image” before cutting.
Make sure when you’re working with Glitter Iron-On Vinyl that you select the custom setting then select Iron-on Glitter.
I used Silver Glitter Iron-On Vinyl. I never use glitter for Ryder’s shirts since my husband thoroughly believes that boys should not have glitter on clothes. But it was for New Years eve and I feel like I could make it slide. Cricut needs to make foil Iron-On so that way boy scan still have shiny stuff too!
Once the design is cut. You’ll need to weed out the negative.
Place the design on the shirt then place the iron on high-heat.
Press the iron directly on to the plastic film. Hold it on for a few seconds until it begins to crinkle.
Remove the plastic, place a light-weight cloth on top and begin to set the iron-on vinyl in place.
This is what the shirt looked like after the design was applied.
I love how it turned out!
Whether your staying in tonight or going to a party dress your little one (or yourself) in a festive shirt to ring in the new year!
