Glitter Vinyl Hiking Adventure Shirt Tutorial

My family’s favorite springtime pastime is hiking. It’s an inexpensive activity that is perfect for all ages. We love exploring new trails and my kids seem at home in nature. My 6 year old loves collecting unique rocks and it’s now a tradition that we bring home one special rock from each hike. I write the trail name and date with a permanent marker on each rock. My littlest has become quite the little adventurer, so I made her a new hiking shirt with the saying “oh darling, let’s be adventurers” for our inaugural hike. Keep on scrolling to grab the cut file for yourself. In preparation for our next hike, we hit up Sam’s Club for trail mix and Nestlé® Pure Life® Water bottles (stay hydrated out there!). Get your hiking gear ready and craft up a glitter vinyl tank top with me!

Step 1: Head to Sam’s Club to grab hiking snacks and Nestlé Pure Life Water ( you’ll get 5 more bottles for the same price as the 35 pack!). Available in select Sam’s Club stores, ask your Club Manager about getting Nestlé Pure Life Water in your store if it’s unavailable. They are filtered through a 12-step quality process and enhanced with a unique blend of minerals, which makes them our favorite water bottle brand. We always have these water bottles on hand to conveniently keep us hydrated during our hikes!

Step 2: Now that you have your hiking snacks worked out, let’s make a shirt! Save the oh darling, let’s be adventurers image.

Step 3: Upload the image into your cutting machine’s design space. Define the cut lines, making sure to erase the spaces in between letters. I recommend leaving the flower solid for a less complicated design. Follow the cutting machine’s instructions and cut the image onto glitter vinyl. Make sure to flip the image before cutting for an iron on.

Step 4: Weed your vinyl image, removing the vinyl that you don’t want to iron on to the shirt. I left the flower solid.
