I think we're starting a new tradition this year...
Autograph t-shirts for the last day of school.
Jen's the one that came up with the idea of making our own t-shirts with the Silhouette heat transfer material. The design idea came from a t-shirt done on the Silhouette blog.
I used the long banner from this shape set. Made it wider to fit my text. Added a circle in the center and welded the two shapes together.
I added the text. Everything is in my favorite font, Bebas Neue, except "autographs" is in Lobster. To make the text follow the path of the circle, read the tutorial found HERE. (So glad to find that out)
Group the entire design together and Flip Horizontally. *Very important when using the heat transfer. Select the Heat Transfer cut setting, insert the material in with the shiny side down and cut.
Remove the negative space of the design. The hook tool helps a lot.
Place the design on your t-shirt, cover with a cloth and iron on.
Remove the plastic transfer sheet and your t-shirt is ready for some autographs!!
Do you and your kids have any fun last day of school traditions?
ETA: Sugar Bee Crafts is sharing the Last Day Autograph cut file over on her blog. Or you can now download the jpeg file below, which you can use with iron-on paper.
