We love our Cricut Explore Air. If you've ever wondered “Will I use the Cricut machine enough to justify the price?” I think the answer is a simple yes. We use it almost weekly, even when we aren't posting on the blog, for everything from science fair project cut outs to last minute shirts for an event to super cute holiday shirts like this DIY Christmas Shirt “I'm on the Nice List” we just made. It's so quick and easy to whip up a simple t-shirt for any occasion. We love the new Holographic Sparkle Iron-On material and had to get creative with it.
My daughters and I made these cute DIY holiday shirts since Christmas is around the corner. Using only fonts available in the Cricut Design Space, I created a text design for our DIY Christmas Shirt that reads “I'm on the Nice List.” The whole project took about 30 minutes from start to finish.
DIY Christmas Shirt “I'm on the Nice List”
- Cricut Holographic Sparkle Iron-On Green
- Cricut Cutting Mat
- Cricut Explore Air
- Create your art file in Cricut Design Space. The DIY Christmas “I'm on the Nice List” file I created is a public file and you can use it from here.
- Apply your Cricut Holographic Sparkle Iron-On Green to the Cricut Cutting Mat. Load the mat into the Cricut Explore Air.
- Follow the directions in the Cricut Design Space to cut the file. (Make note to mirror the image because it's an iron-on.)
- Remove negative Cricut iron-on pieces, leaving only the desired cut image on the liner (this process is known as weeding). Using the weeder (found in the Cricut Tool Kit can make this process faster and less tedious). One of these days I will get myself the Cricut BrightPad to make this process even easier.
- Apply Cricut Holographic Sparkle Iron-On Green following directions on the packaging. (Note that each iron-on product varies a little in its instructions). I can't wait to grab a Cricut EasyPress. I think this will be a present to myself this holiday season. I love the idea of the even 9×9 ironing surface for making shirts and the like. How easy would that be instead of a standard iron?!?
