got cacti tie dye t-shirt

Plant lovers can express themselves through this colorful shirt! It unites the age of tradition of tie dye with the technology of the Cricut® machine, making it easy and fun to personalize your threads!
Step 1

Project Note: For best results, wash your shirt before you begin to tie-dye. 

While your shirt is still wet, follow the instructions included with the kit to tie-dye your shirt. 

Step 2
In Cricut® Design Space™, open a new project. Click on the ‘Images’ icon in the left panel, enter ‘#M97A5EFE’ (or ‘Cacti’) in the search field, click on the design and then ‘Insert Images’.
Step 3
Size the design to how you want it to fit on your shirt; then, click ‘Make It’ in the upper right corner of your screen.
Step 4
In your preview screen, check ‘Mirror’ in the left panel to reverse your image.
Step 5

Now, click ‘Continue’ in the bottom right corner of your screen and choose your material.

TIP: Always make sure to select the most accurate material available for your Cricut® projects, so your machine knows how deep to cut into your material.

Step 6
Place the iron-on material, 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
Once your machine is done cutting, use scissors to cut your design from the 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 8

Preheat your EasyPress™ to the appropriate temperature for your material.

TIP: See the Quick Reference Guide, included with your EasyPress™, for temperature and times or click here for an interactive guide. You can also use an iron to press your material. Just follow the instructions included in the iron-on material packaging. 

Step 9
Place your shirt on top of your EasyPress™ mat and then preheat the fabric for 5 seconds.
Step 10
Place the carrier sheet with your design, so it’s sticky-side down and place it onto your shirt. You should be able to see the layer through the carrier sheet just as it will appear once ironed.
Step 11
Place your EasyPress™ on top of the design, apply the appropriate pressure for your material and press the time button. Once it beeps, flip over your shirt and press for another 15 seconds. If your material is a warm peel, you may go ahead and peel off the carrier sheet. If it is a cool peel, let it cool completely before removing the carrier sheet.
