4th of July T-Shirts

Independence Day is only 2 weeks away, {Yipee!!!} and I thought it would be fun to make some cute 4th of July shirts for my girls with my Silhouette.

If you haven’t ever worked with the Silhouette Rhinestones, you are missing out! I love the BLING it added to these fun designs! To apply the rhinestones, I used the tutorial on the instructions they sent with the kit, but here is another one found on the Silhouette blog- no use retyping what has already been demonstrated, right?

Here are some of my simple design notes:firecracker t shirt 3

For the Lil Fire Cracker shirt, I used the wick and spark from a silhouette design download but I created my own stick.

For the Land of the Free shirt, I used the Statue of Liberty design from Silhouette, but it’s not a rhinestone template so the rhinestone part I free handed in the software.

So cute and so fun!!!

Did I mention how excited I am for the 4th of July?!?!?!
