What better way to celebrate being engaged than with some fun wearables that you can rock throughout your wedding planning time? Its basically the only time you can wear them and if you make them yourself, they can be very inexpensive too! :) I started this year off with one of my favorite just engaged tank top sayings and it makes me wish I was engaged again and planning a wedding this year! :)
I made this tank top with Confetti Glitter HTV and loved the look of it and they have tons of different colors to choose from if this gold isn’t really your color. :) And if you have the Cricut already, this project costs less than $10! Pair it with a Wedding Planning Wine Glass or any of the Swag Under $15 we showed last week for a great just engaged vibe to get you through the fun (or stress) of wedding planning. :)
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 the way you like.
2. After selecting “Make It” Make sure to select the Mirror Mode on the cutting screen. Cut the design in your choice of heat transfer vinyl (I used Gold Confetti Glitter 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 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 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.
This is a great project to start your journey into DIY wedding crafting, its easy to weed, a good size for a tank top but can be easily ironed on with just a few ironed “presses” to finish it up and not a lot of small or thin lines that could pull up if you didn’t iron it long enough.
