I was given the Heat Transfer Vinyl to create this shirt. All opinions and instructions are my own.
You will need:
- A shirt to iron the image to
- Blue Glitter Heat Transfer from Expressions Vinyl
- A Cutting Machine (the attached prepared files for this shirt are for a Silhouette)
- An iron
- The file at the end of the post
Remember when cutting heat transfer with a machine, you always need to be sure to flip/mirror your images or you text will be backwards when you iron it on. Feed your glitter heat transfer into the machine with the carrier (clear plastic sheet) down. The settings you need vary from machine to machine. For a Silhouette Cameo you will need, a speed of 8, a thickness of 9 and a blade setting of 2. For all other machines, go here for each machine’s individual glitter settings. Cut the glitter heat transfer and the weed out the extra.
Preheat your shirt or other surface for about 3 seconds with a iron set at 325 degrees. Place the main design glitter side down on the shirt. Apply firm pressure on ALL parts of the design for 10-15 seconds. Flip the shirt inside out and apply heat and pressure on the design from the inside as well. Peel the clear carrier sheet off while the design is still hot. Repeat the process with the snowflakes on the sleeves of the shirt. You can find video instructions for cutting and applying heat transfer here.
One of the things I love about this glitter heat transfer is that it doesn’t require hand washing. Simply flip the shirt inside out when washing and then hang to dry and your shirt will last for a long time.
