Christmas Shirts For Family

Before I got my Cricut, I used to buy custom shirts from my friend. Now that I have my own Cricut, I love making custom shirts for every holiday and event. It is super easy to customize designs and color in Cricut Design Space.

Christmas Shirts For Family

This original design had brown for Rudolf, but I don’t have brown vinyl nor am I interested in putting brown vinyl on my shirts. Instead I changed the colors to fit what I had on hand. I think the colors look fantastic together.

Measure Shirt First 

Take the shirt and measure the space to determine how large you want the words to be. I always keep a small measuring tape in my Cricut. 

Cricut Design Space

Open the Cricut Design Space on your computer. You can do this from your phone and tablet too. Add a text box to a new project or you can choose an image design like we did for these shirts. There are some of the awesome pre-made Christmas designs that go great on holiday shirts. Actually, there are ton of free one too.  Size the Cricut Design based on the measurements you took of the shirts . You can merge or change the colors of the Design using color sync on the right side of Cricut Design Space. Now, hit MAKE it in green in the upper right corner.

Ironing On BOTH Sparkle Vinyl & Everyday Vinyl 

To use Cricut Holographic Sparkle iron on vinyl, you should use the green circuit sheet with the standard stickiness.

Place the Holographic Sparkle vinyl shiny side down on the green standard grip Cricut mat. Make sure it is secure and try to avoid bubbles.

Load the green sheet with the sparkle holographic vinyl on it using the arrows and make sure the Cricut pulls it in properly.

On the computer, choose the machine and make sure that you are reversing the image.

Also, choose the type of Cricut Sparkle Holographic iron-on vinyl by selecting from the Cricut database of material. There are so many – make sure you get the right one.

Ensure that the Cricut has space behind and in front so it can work properly.

When the C – Cricut symbol is flashing, press it and watch the Cricut cut the letters.

Remove the sheet with the arrows.

Pull off the Vinyl and cut the space where the letters are.

Remove everything except the letters from the sheet using the weeding tools.

Pressing Cricut Sparkle Holographic Iron On AND Cricut Everyday Vinyl

Lay the shirt bag on the Easy Press Mat on top of a flat surface like a table.

Let the Easy Press 2 heat up while you prep the shirt.

Heat up the area for 5 seconds where you will adding the Design. Place the whole design to get the spacing. 

Remove all the Everyday Vinyl pieces and leave only the Cricut Sparkle Holographic Iron On. 

Place the Easy Press 2 on top of the Holographic Vinyl and let it is sit while you hold the machine for 30 seconds.

Remove the Easy Press 2 and put it back on the cradle.
