monogram christmas tree long sleeve t-shirt

Create your own monogram inside a Christmas icon for a fun long sleeve shirt to wear throughout the holiday season. Mix matte and glitter HTV materials when cutting your design!
Step 1

First, create your design:
- Find a Christmas icon you like in Cricut® Design Space™.
TIP: If you want to use the design shown, click here. Remove the existing monogram, or use it as a guide, then delete before you cut.
- Click on ‘Shapes’ in the left panel, size and place it where desired over your icon.
- Select both pieces of your design and slice the circle from icon.
- Create your monogram as desired.
TIP: For the monogram shown, click ‘Images’ in the left panel and search “Anna’s Designer Monogram”. Find your letters, then use the contour function (in the bottom right corner of your canvas screen) to remove what you do not need. Be sure to attach the letters to each other so they cut as you have them arranged.
- Place the monogram in the middle of the circle to size.

Step 2

Size the design as you would like it to appear on your shirt.
TIP: Click the box next to the operation top (towards the upper left of the canvas screen) and choose what closely represents your HTV so you can get a good idea how it will look when cut. This also groups the parts of the design that needs to be cut from the same HTV rolls.

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 correct material.

Step 6

Place the iron-on material for the first layer, 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

Repeat Step 6 with remaining layers.
TIP: When cutting with multiple material types, such as matte, glitter and/or foil, be sure to watch the preview panel to update the material type so your machine knows how to cut each layer.

Step 8

Use scissors to cut the design from each iron-on material roll. 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 9

See instructions included with your heat press to attach your design to your shirt.
TIP: Press each layer, one at a time, starting with the bottom layer. For this design, first press the white layer. Next line up the Powder Blue layer over the white and finally, the Silver glitter layer.

Step 10

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.
