Spring break gave me a taste of just what the summer holds. No packing lunches or schedules. Even the kids found it difficult to go back to class this week. My daughter is now counting the days until summer break. Are your kids doing the same? If you are already planning for the end of the school year, here is a cute last day of school autograph shirt that I created with my Cricut machine. It is an easy and quick project that takes less than 15 minutes to make. Seriously, it took longer to wait for my Cricut EasyPress to warm up than it did to create the project itself.
I have designs for 1st through 12th grade to make it easy for you guys to grab your child’s grade and create a shirt of your own.
- Cricut machine (I’m using the Cricut Explore Air 2)
- Cricut StandardGrip Cutting Mat
- Cricut weeding tool (mine is from the Basic Tools set)
- Cricut Iron-on Lite in a coordinating color with the shirt
- Home iron or Cricut EasyPress
- Optional: If using the Cricut EasyPress, the Cricut EasyPress mat is a great addition.
Open up Cricut Design Space. Click the grade below to grab my pre-made design. Please note that, according to what is available on Cricut Design Space, the banner image may require a charge or be free with a Cricut Access Subscription. If you are unfamiliar with Cricut Access Subscriptions, see this article.
Click “customize” after clicking the grade design above. Measure the front of the shirt to determine how large the design should be. Resize the design to the needed size.
Place the Iron-on vinyl on the StandardGrip Cutting Mat, liner side down. Be sure to mirror the image. Cut the image with the Cricut machine.
Weed the design.
If using the Cricut EasyPress, pre-heat the shirt on the Cricut EasyPress Mat. Place the iron-on design on the front of the shirt and adhere with the EasyPress using the heat setting on the EasyPress instructions.
If using a home iron, adhere the design to the shirt following the guidelines in this article “How to Get an Iron-on Vinyl Project Right the FIRST Time.”
