So Loved Rainbow Cut File

This "So Loved" Rainbow Cut File is perfect for shirts, home decor, and even Valentine's Day projects!

Valentine's Day Rainbow Shirt + Cut File

I've been loving the boho rainbow trend happening right now, so I decided to make a new cut file to share with you to create some cute projects! This "So Loved" Rainbow cut file will work for any occasion - think Valentine's Day, baby/kids tees, home decor, and so much more. So, get your Cricut machine out and get inspired to make yourself something awesome today!

To make your own "So Loved" Rainbow shirt, you'll need these supplies:

So Loved Rainbow Cut File in Cricut Design Space

Upload the "So Loved Rainbow" cut file into Design Space and size the image to fit your shirt. Select different parts of the design and change colors as necessary. If you are making shirts for a group or siblings, you can change the colors around a little for each separate design so that each shirt is a little bit different - which is pretty fun!

Before cutting the iron-on vinyl, make sure to mirror your image! If you don't, your design will be backwards when you put it on the shirt. To do this, select the mat thumbnail in Design Space before cutting, and click the "Mirror" toggle to reverse the image.

*Here's a great tutorial on how to upload your own images into Cricut Design Space.

Cricut cutting Iron-On Vinyl

For this shirt, I used a mix of white, red, and teal HTV. Place the vinyl face-down on the mat, and load it into the machine. Change the material settings to the type of vinyl you are cutting, and then click the "Go" button to cut the vinyl.

"Weed" the excess vinyl by removing all of the parts that don't belong in the design. I usually peel away the outer edges starting at the corner and working my way around the design. Then I use weeding tools to remove the smaller pieces of the design.

Cricut EasyPress

Plug in the EasyPress 2 and power it on. Each kind of HTV has a different heat and time setting, so be sure to check the recommended EasyPress settings before getting started. Adjust the heat and time setting to your shirt and vinyl specifications. Once the light turns green and the machine beeps, it's ready to use.

When the EasyPress is up to temperature, place your shirt on the EasyPress Mat and preheat the area for 5-10 seconds. Lay the HTV down on the shirt, with the clear carrier sheet facing up. Set the EasyPress over the vinyl and press the green "C" button. Hold firmly in place while the timer counts down. Turn the shirt over and press the EasyPress firmly again for 15 seconds. Peel off the carrier sheet while the vinyl is still warm.

Valentine's Day Rainbow Shirt + Cut File

The cut file comes with multiple file types, so you can actually cut the design with any vinyl cutting machine. I hope you enjoy using this cut file, and I would absolutely LOVE to see your creations!! Tag me on Instagram and Facebook, and leave a comment/photo on the project pin on Pinterest!
