Hey party peeps! Last week I shared my ideas for a Sweet 16 party and how to make the Sweet 16 Invitation (see it HERE). Today, I’m going to show you how to make this #16ROCKS! SWEET 16 T-SHIRTS with my new Cricut Explore Air™ 2 machine.
LET’S MAKE THESE DIY SWEET 16 T-SHIRTS!
These would make fabulous Sweet 16 party favors or you could package them up with your Sweet 16 party invitation like I did and really make your guests feel like V.I.P.s! Have your guests wear the custom t-shirts to the party. How fabulous is that!
HERE’S WHAT YOU’LL NEED
STEP 1: LOAD THE T-SHIRT PROJECT IN CRICUT DESIGN SPACE
Log in to Cricut Design Space. You can access this #16ROCKS! T-Shirt Project file directly HERE. Click on OPEN. You will see the T-Shirt project loaded on your canvas that resembles the Cricut mat. Cricut Design Space will automatically walk you through cutting. Your computer can connect to your Cricut wirelessly via Bluetooth or you can connect directly with a USB cord. Once you have the project open, CLICK ON MAKE IT.
STEP 2: PLACE THE IRON-ON FOIL ON THE CRICUT MAT
Trim a 12″ piece of the Iron On Adhesive Foil with the paper trimmer. Starting at the top left corner of the mat, place the gold adhesive foil on your Cricut standard grip mat with the gold side face down on the mat. Smooth it down so it is flat on the mat.
STEP 3: LOAD THE GOLD FOIL IRON-ON INTO THE CRICUT
Turn the material knob on your Cricut to CUSTOM and select Iron On Foil from the list of custom material options. Be sure to select the “MIRROR” option in Design Space so it cuts out the image backward on the iron on material. When prompted, place the mat under the clips on the Cricut and hit the LOAD button on the front of the Cricut. It will pull the mat into position.
STEP 4: CUT OUT THE WORDS FROM GOLD FOIL IRON ON
When prompted, hit GO! The Cricut will cut out the words from the iron on foil. When it’s done you will hit the LOAD button again to unload the mat. Once unloaded, gently pull the foil off the mat leaving the words image on the mat. Use the weeder tool to remove any unwanted foil left on the mat, like the inside of the number 6 and inside the #.
STEP 5: IRON ON YOUR DESIGN TO THE T-SHIRT
Next, it’s time to iron on your #16ROCKS! design on to your black t-shirt. Start by ironing the t-shirt free of wrinkles. Then, place your iron on the lowest setting (wool) and turn off the steam. Iron the front chest area where you will be putting your design for a minute or so to heat it up. Remove the iron and place your design on the shirt where you want it.
I don’t know about you, but my new Cricut Explore Air™ 2 Machine has opened up all kinds of creative possibilities! I’m going to be making lots of t-shirts this summer with this easy tool. If you don’t have one yet, I have GREAT NEWS!
