Tap, tap, tap…Anyone there?! Ha! Just kidding. It feels like it’s been a while since I’ve shared here. Lately I’ve been feeling a little bit like my life is not my own. Whether it’s helping one kid with homework, taking one kid here or there, or chasing my two year old, I just can’t seem to get all the things I’d like to done. But such is life when you’re a mom. I enjoy being a mom (most days) and I know that’s what is important, but sometimes I just want to spend all day creating, rather than chasing kids. Anyone else? A couple of things I’ve really been loving seeing around the inter-webs lately is graphic tees. I’m a t-shirt and jeans kind of girl, but one thing I do love is a graphic tee. No lie, I have almost ever color of these tees from Target. I got them a few years ago, and I wear them almost weekly. About a year and a half ago, I put some iron-on vinyl on one of them, and I love it. Someday (hopefully soon) I’ll share it here with you. Anyway, I decided last week, after seeing some of the cute shirts that Sugar Bee Crafts and Tauni + Co. have been sharing, that I wanted some more of them! So, I created this cut file and found a couple others that I bought online and made myself some graphic tees. So today, I’m sharing this Glitter Iron-on Vinyl Makers Gonna Make Graphic Tee with you, and you can make one for yourself too.

Glitter Iron-on Vinyl Makers Gonna Make Graphic Tee Supplies:
- Cricut Machine (I recommend the Air 2 or Maker)
- Glitter Iron-on Vinyl in color of choice
- Cricut EasyPress
- Cut File (for personal use only)
- Blank Shirt
Using my Cricut Explore Air 2, I uploaded the image and cut out my glitter iron-on vinyl. Note: When cutting iron on material, make sure that you MIRROR YOUR IMAGE. I have forgotten to do this at times, and it always makes me mad because I end up wasting expensive material. 😉
Once cut, place your image onto the shirt where you want it. Use your easy press to adhere it to the shirt. If you want to see better how to do it, I show you how on this post. Let me know if you have questions. Just make sure you use the settings for your fabric content and the type of vinyl you are using.
Once it’s adhered, you are ready to go. I love using the glitter iron on because it has that shimmer but I also love it because it sticks so well!! I used it on a shirt nearly two years ago, and I wear it almost weekly and it has held up so great!!
If you like graphic tees too, then get yourself a blank shirt and whip up one of these Glitter Iron-on Vinyl Makers Gonna Make Graphic Tee shirts. Pair with with a simple cardigan, comfy shoes (love, love, love these shoes!) and some simple jewelry.Linking up to some of these parties.
