Instructions for making a ‘let the shenanigans begin’ shirt (and other cute women’s St. Patrick’s Day shirts like it)
Here are the detailed instructions for how to make these cool St. Patrick’s Day shirts with your Cricut. If you’d like to see a video of these steps, you can watch how to make this Cricut St. Patrick’s Day shirt in this Pinterest Idea Pin.
- Design your “Let the Shenanigans Begin” shirt art in the Cricut Design Space app. I used the font “A Child’s Year” for the words “Let the” and “Begin,” and the font “Annie Leu” for the word “Shenanigans.” I added a few shamrock images from the Cricut Design Space library. After arranging the art, select all of it then Group them together. Resize the design to your desired width to fit nicely on the front of your shirt.
- Follow the instructions on your app and Cricut Joy to “Make It,” choosing Without Mat (since you’re using Smart Materials), turning Mirror on (since you’re using iron-on material), then selecting Cricut Smart Iron-On Glitter as the material, followed by the appropriate size. Load the material into the Cricut Joy shiny side down. Cut the text in gold and the shamrocks in green.
- Use your weeding tools to remove the excess iron-on material, leaving just the mirrored letters and artwork on the clear plastic backing.
- Place the shirt on the Cricut EasyPress Mat. Heat the EasyPress to 330 degrees F and set the timer to 30 seconds. Before adding the iron-on material, pre-heat the shirt by pressing the hot EasyPress onto the shirt for 30 seconds.
- Arrange the let the shenanigans begin shirt art, clear plastic side up, on the shirt. Use Cricut Heat Resistant Tape to secure the design in place. Place the EasyPress over the art and press lightly for 30 seconds. Carefully turn the shirt inside out and place it back onto the mat. Set the EasyPress timer to 15 seconds, and press down on the back side of the shirt art for 15 seconds.
- When the art is cool to the touch, slowly remove the clear plastic liner from your DIY St. Patrick’s shirt.
