cricut® now i'm the teacher graduation cap

Finally, you are in charge! Be proud of your accomplishment and display is on your graduation cap for all to see!
Step 1

First, click on the ‘Text’ icon in the left panel and type “Now…”. Find the font you like and size to fit across the top your graduation hat, when it is turned diagonally. 

Step 2

Repeat Step 1 for “I’m” “the” to fit across the middle, and “Teacher!” across the bottom.

TIP: If you are using a cursive font, be sure to weld your individual words! 

Step 3

Click ‘Make It’ in the upper right corner of your screen. 

Step 4

In your preview screen, check ‘Mirror’ in the left panel for each mat, to reverse your image. 

Step 5

Now, click ‘Continue’ in the bottom right corner of your screen and choose the material you are cutting. 

Step 6

Place the iron-on material, shiny-side down, onto your cutting mat. Load the mat into your Cricut® machine, then press the blinking Cricut® icon to start cutting. 

Step 7

Once your machine is done cutting, use scissors to cut your design from the iron-on material rolls and then cut them into their individual words. Next, use your weeder tool to remove all the excess material around and inside your design. You’ll be left with just the reversed design on the clear plastic carrier sheets, which are slightly sticky. 

Step 8

Preheat your iron to the appropriate temperature for your material.

TIP: See the instructions on the packaging for ironing. 

Step 9

Preheat the fabric of your hat for 5 seconds. 

Step 10

Place the carrier sheet with your first word, so it’s sticky-side down, onto your graduation hat. You should be able to see the layer through the carrier sheet, just as it will appear once ironed. 

Step 11

Repeat Steps 10-11 for each word on your hat. 

Step 12

If your material is the warm peel type, you may go ahead and peel off the carrier sheet. If your material is a cool peel type, let it cool completely before removing the carrier sheet. 

Step 13

Use hot glue to attach a pencil across the middle of edge for a border. 

Step 14
Hot glue a rhinestone in each corner.
