Step 1 Prewash and dry shirt to remove sizing; do not use fabric softener.
Step 2 Cut out pattern designs and use a permanent marker to trace the heart onto a Silver Shimmer Transfer Sheet and the Santa hat onto a Red Shimmer Transfer Sheet. Cut out.
Step 3 Use the Cricut Expression® Machine to create an “I” from the Silver Shimmer Transfer Sheet and “SANTA” from the Black Shimmer Transfer Sheet. Note: If a Cricut Expression® Machine is unavailable, you can print letters in your favorite font from your computer, then cut out and trace onto Shimmer Transfer Sheets as done with designs in Step 2.
Step 4 Place shirt on a hard, flat surface and heat iron to a suitable setting for shirt fabric (no steam). Peel off plastic coverings from shimmer designs and place on shirt as shown.
Step 5 Place pressing cloth over designs on shirt then press hot iron over designs and hold in place for 40 seconds. Check to make sure designs have set and if not, add more heat as necessary.
Step 6 Arrange shirt flat on work surface and insert cardboard in between layers of shirt. Place patterns for furry sections of Santa hat in place around shimmer hat on shirt and trace with chalk.
Step 7 Test Shiny White 3D Paint on a paper towel to get a feel for bottle. Apply paint to chalked sections around Santa hat, squeezing paint in a swirling motion.
Step 8 Let dry flat for 4 hours. Remove cardboard from inside shirt.
