Make a Glittery Hand Lettered Cinderella Quote Tee

Today's post is sponsored by Expressions Vinyl and contains affiliate links.  Thanks for supporting Pitter & Glink!
Hey, y'all!  Are y'all Disney fans?  I'm not sure how anyone could NOT be a Disney fan, so you probably answered yes.  Well, today I have teamed up with a whole slew of talented bloggers to share Disney-inspired projects with y'all.  We each made a project using vinyl from Expressions Vinyl, and, y'all, everyone's projects are sooooo awesome!  I made a glittery tee that features a hand-lettered quote from Cinderella, and I'm sharing the full tutorial, along with the FREE SVG and Silhouette cut files, with y'all today.  And at the end of the post, I'm sharing links to all the other creative Disney-inspired projects.  As if that wasn't enough epicness for one post, you can enter to win a Southern California vacation at the end of the post!!!  Let's begin, shall we?
Make a glittery, hand-lettered Cinderella quote t-shirt to remind you to keep dreaming
When I was asked to be a part of this blog hop, my first two thoughts were that I would either make something inspired by The Little Mermaid (because mermaids, duh) or something inspired by Cinderella because Cinderella's Castle is one of my favorite things in Disney World.  I looked up some quotes from the movies, and this quote from Cinderella just screamed to be hand lettered.  Plus, I have a few dreams that I'm still wishing for, and I need all the positive affirmations I can get.  You can make your very own Cinderella quote tee quickly and easily following the steps below.

You'll need a few supplies to get started.  I'm going to link to them below using affiliate links, which is just a fancy way of saying that if you decide to purchase through one of my links, a small portion of the purchase price will go toward supporting my blog.  (Thanks!)


FREE hand-lettered Cinderella quote cut file

Step One:

After you download the Silhouette cut file, open it in Silhouette Studio.  Right click on the design and ungroup it so that you can separate the words and cut them from different color HTV.
Group words in Silhouette Studio to keep HTV waste to a minimum

Step Two:

Arrange all the words together that you plan to cut using Old Gold glitter HTV.  Mirror them and cut using the appropriate settings for Glitter HTV.

Step Three:

Repeat the above process with the words you plan to cut using the Sapphire glitter HTV.
Weeding Glitter HTV from Expressions Vinyl

Step Four:

Weed the designs.  This is a fancy way of saying that you need to remove all the vinyl surrounding your design.  Use a straight pin or a weeding tool of some sort to make the process easier.

Step Five:

Cut the pieces of your design apart so that you can arrange them onto your t-shirt the correct way.  Then arrange them onto your t-shirt and iron them on using the appropriate setting on your iron.  Check out the HTV setting chart on the Expressions Vinyl website for guidance.  (Sorry that I didn't get a picture of this part of the process, but I had no light when I was doing this step, and I forgot to take one later.)  
Once your ironing is done, your shirt is complete!

But I love that you can make other things using the cut file as well.  You could make art or put the quote on a tote bag or even an acrylic tumbler.  You're only limited by your imagination!
