3 Easy Steps

If you have all of these supplies, then get started. Just follow these easy steps:

Step One – Cut Your Design

If using a cutter plotter, this step is as simple as choosing your design and pressing the “cut” button. If cutting by hand, use a template or trace your design onto the iron-on material using a light box.

Mirror your design in the Cricut design space. Put your measured iron-on material on your cutting mat and let the machine cut.

Use a weeding tool to remove excess vinyl areas. Cut excess vinyl with scissors before or after weeding.

Step Two – Heat Press the Vinyl

Place your iron-on vinyl in the center of your heat press and apply medium pressure for 15 seconds.

For a household iron, place the Teflon sheet (or a press cloth) between the iron tip and the glitter vinyl. Press down for 15 seconds and apply firm pressure directly on loose edges.

Don’t use steam irons. However, if you only have steam iron, switch off the steam setting.

Step Three – Apply Vinyl To Fabric

After heat-activating your glitter iron-on vinyl, it is time to apply it to fabric! Place your backing material over the top of the glitter side of your vinyl and place a piece of parchment paper over that.

Use your heat press or iron to apply pressure for 20-30 seconds. Then, peel away the transfer tape at a 45-degree angle.

Prints using a glitter vinyl iron-on material set are much more amazing when you do some layering techniques.

Tips and Tricks For The Perfect Result

  • When pre-washing materials, dry them thoroughly before heat pressing. Some glitter HTVs don’t work well on moist fabric.
  • Smoothen wrinkles or bumps in the fabric. Always have your preheated material ready.
  • Use a Teflon sheet when applying glitter vinyl with an iron instead of a heat press. Alternatively, use a press cloth, dish towel or any cotton cloth when applying heat. This will prevent damage on your prints.
  • When applying the iron-on to the fabric, do not stretch it out. This can cause the letters or designs to distort.
  • Also, follow the instructions or reminders in the iron-on glitter vinyl. HTVs are either hot-peel or cool-peel.
  • Always, review options including controls on your heat press or steam setting on your iron.

Bonus Tip
