What better way to celebrate your new married status on your honeymoon than with some super cute Hubs and Wifey shirts! :) I made two different designs, Wifey and Wifey for Lifey, because I couldn’t decide which one I liked more. :) Plus it never hurts to have options so you can pick your favorite too!
I made them on both Tshirts and Tank tops, mainly because I like tank tops and the hubs like Tshirts, so when we wear them they will already be our favorite kind of top! :) It’s kinda hard to see in the pictures, but I made the Wifey and Wifey for lifey decals in Rainbow White Glitter HTV and it is just the right amount of sparkly! The Hubs is not so into glitter (fair) so he got Easyweed Black HTV. :) These are great projects for beginners, nice big decals that are easy to weed and can take some heat while you are figuring out all the fun of iron on decals! :)
1. After downloading the cut files, import them into the Cricut Software. After creating a new project, select Upload Image. Select the file you wish to upload and it will automatically take you to the final upload screen, where you can name the file the select Save. The SVG Files are sized so that they will automatically cut to the size you see in the photos, but if you want to change the size you can do so to fit the tank tops and t-shirts the way you like.
2. After selecting “Make It” Make sure to select the Mirror Mode on the cutting screen. Cut the design(s) in your choice of heat transfer vinyl (I used White Rainbow Glitter HTV and Easyweed Black HTV) with the Iron On (for Easyweed Vinyl) or Iron On+ (for Glitter Vinyl) Setting on your Cricut, with the shiny side of the material down.
3. Weed the additional material off of the backing material so that, looking down with the shiny side up, you can see your design with the correct orientation.
4. Iron your tank top/Tshirt to remove any creases, then center the design over the top half of the tank top. Arrange the design shiny side up, then cover with parchment paper. Make sure to keep the parchment paper between the design and the iron.
5. Set your Iron to the second Highest setting and press the the iron down firmly on the design, not ironing but rather using it as a small heat press. I worked from the upper left to lower right on the design, pressing the iron on each part of the design for at least 20-30 seconds, then overlapping the last position as you move the iron across the design.
6. Remove the backing from the design, leaving the design on the tank top. Repeat with all the remaining tops.
