How to make

You will also need:

A White T-Shirt

Cricut Design Space app installed on a laptop, PC, Tablet or mobile device

Step 1

First, open up a new project in Cricut Design Space. In Images search for 'Bee Kind' (#MF0268D6), once the image is selected add it to the canvas by clicking "Insert".

Step 2

Resize the image to 8.4 x 8.5 inches.

Step 3

Next, head to the mat preview screen, make sure that you mirror the image by clicking the mirror button. This is important, as you always cut into the back of Iron-on vinyl.

Step 4

Choose the material you are going to cut to be Sportflex Iron-on. Then add a sheet of Black Sportflex shiny-side down onto the mat.

Step 5

Load the mat into the machine and start cutting.

Step 6

Once the machine has finished cutting, remove the Sportflex sheet from the mat. Use a pair of scissors to trim around your cut image so that you can save the unused vinyl for another project.

Use your weeding tool to help you remove all of the vinyl pieces you don't want, leaving behind the "Bee Kind" image.

Step 7

Check the EasyPress heat guide (https://cricut.com/en_us/heatguide) to get the best result for the material you are pressing onto, then heat up your EasyPress to the correct temperature.

Lay your t-shirt down on top of the EasyPress mat, making sure you lay it flat without any creases. Lay your weeded vinyl design down onto your t-shirt, with the clear carrier on top.

Step 8

Press the image using the EasyPress for the recommended time. Once the timer goes off, place the EasyPress back into its cradle. Wait for the vinyl to cool, before peeling away the carrier sheet to reveal your completed T-Shirt.
