Next week I will be at day camp with my Cub Scout all week! So excited! I hope I survive! ha! Anyways last week I went to walking den leader training & some of the packs mentioned that they had matching pack t-shirts for their boys! What?!!? Our boys had nothing! Whoops! Well, Silhouette heat transfer material to the rescue! Yay! I was able to whip up these cute t-shirts super quick, and we are ready now! Thank goodness we only have 3 boys going! ha! That made it a little easier! I made the boys bright yellow ones, and I have a matching pink one! 😉

The theme for our day camp is Out of This World…so I made our shirts to match this. In the process I learned how to text wrap my words with the Silhouette design software. I was so excited! It was so easy, and I know I’m going to be using this all the time now! 🙂

First you’ll make a circle the size you think you’ll need. You can resize your image later if you need to…so no big deal….basically you just need a circle. 🙂


Then type out the words you want to wrap. Notice that little icon on the bottom corner….

You’ll grab that & drag your words over to your circle….then they will automatically wrap around your circle! Isn’t that ah-mazing??!! Notice how your circle turns gray. When you send this to your Silhouette in just a bit the circle will not be cut…just the words around it will be cut! So awesome!

I wanted my letters to go around the circle a bit more, so I just highlighted them like normal & increased the font size until I got the look I wanted.

Then I added this cute little spaceship from the Silhouette online library to the middle. Then I copied & pasted until I had 3 logos for my shirts. They all fit on one smooth heat transfer sheet. Sweet!

Before sending my image to the Silhouette to cut I made sure I mirrored my images. You want the letters to cut in reverse.

I sent the image to my Silhouette, cut it, weeded it, & now we are ready to make some t-shirts. 😉
