Step by Step
1) Open Design Space and open a new project
2) Create a text box and write your text
3) Size the text according to your shirt dimensions
4) Once you have your text how you like it, WELD the text together
**If you are layering, make a shape that you want to layer your text onto, place the text on top of the shape – highlight everything and click slice – and pull away the layers. This will leave your shape with space to layer your text onto. You will want to KEEP one chunk of the text (to cut) and delete the other). At the end – you will be cutting out a circle and a chunk of text)
5) Click MAKE IT
6) ****MIRROR YOUR IMAGE ONCE YOU GET TO THE MAKE IT SCREEN THIS STEP IS SUPER IMPORTANT!****
7) Select your settings – for regular HTV just select Iron On – for holographic, select holographic
8) Put HTV ****SHINY SIDE DOWN***** on your mat
9) Load your mat into your machine using arrow buttons
10) Once loaded, click your Cricut button
11) Once cut, unload your mat and take HTV off your mat
12) Weed out negative space so that you are left with the letters
**If you are layering – weed out the LETTERS out of your shape – this will leave you the space to layer your text onto)

LAYERING:
1) First we want to layer the circle or shape (this is the piece of hTV that has open space for letters).
2) Put your carrier sheet with the HTV onto your tote and center or place it how you like (put the sticky side of the carrier sheet on your shirt – the text will not be backwards)
3) Once you have it how you like it, heat up your heat press or iron (for iron, TURN OFF STEAM and use hottest setting)
4) Once your image is ready to go, put the parchment paper on top of the carrier sheet and PRESS FOR ONLY A FEW SECONDS – WE JUST WANT IT TO BARELY STICK – THIS WILL PREVENT IT FROM SHRINKING AND THROWING OFF DIMENSIONS- don’t move your heat source around just set it on the image and press
5) Peel off carrier sheet
6) Now, place your TEXT HTV onto the HTV that is already pressed and line up the layers accordingly – NOTE: IF YOU CAN, TRY CUTTING YOUR TEXT INTO TWO PIECES (NOT CUTTING THE HTV, JUST THE CARRIER SHEET), THIS MAY MAKE IT EASIER TO LAYER)
7) Once lined up, place the large carrier sheet (from your original chunk of HTV – I didn’t do this in the video on accident) over the entire image and press firmly for 15-20 seconds
8) You now have a layered design 🙂
