3 Cut the images from the required coloured iron-on vinyls following the on-screen prompts and making sure you check the ‘mirror image’ box for every mat and select the appropriate resource setting on the Smart Dial. You can use the ‘iron-on glitter’ setting in the ‘custom’ list for the Cricut iron-on glitter vinyls. Use the vinyl applicator tool to apply the iron-on vinyls to the cutting mat to ensure good contact.

4 Use the weeder tool to carefully remove the unwanted iron-on vinyl.

5 Follow the packaging instructions to apply the design to the sweatshirt using an iron and press cloth. Cricut Iron-on vinyls can be layered, but it is not advisable to layer any on top of the glitter version (i.e. make the glitter iron-on vinyl the top layer).

6 Glue pompoms to embellish the design.
