Valentine’s Day T Shirts for Boys with Cricut

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Cricut. The opinions and text are all mine.


It can be hard to find Valentine’s T shirts for boys but I’ve got everything you need to make your own using a Cricut! 6 different designs and ideas!

I have had a hard time finding some Valentine’s Day shirts for my little boy that were my style. I don’t love the color red and wanted him to be excited about them! Plus, hearts aren’t really a boys thing normally. I think these 6 designs incorporate some fun Valentine’s themes without looking girly.

What you’ll need for your Valentine’s Day Shirts for Boys

Cricut Explore Air 2

EasyPress 2

EasyPress Mat

Standard Grip Mat

Light Grip Mat

Butcher Paper (Comes with your Infusible Ink Transfer Sheets if that’s what you’re using!)

Blank Cardstock

Infusible Ink Tee Shirts

For the science themed shirts you will need:

Plain paper

0.4 Black Infusible Ink Pen

Galaxy Infusible Ink Sheet

For the jungle themed tee shirts you will need:

Jungle Patterened Infusible Ink Sheet

Black Everyday Iron on

For exact instructions for the individual shirt designs you will go to this Science Shirts for Boys post and this Jungle Boys T Shirts post. Here I will show you how I made the ‘I love you to the Moon and Back’ design specifically as a start!

Find that cut file here.

Start by loading your plain paper onto a light grip mat and place your Infusible Ink pen in the left cartridge slot.

Load up the project linked above and be sure to click ‘Mirror for iron on’. I have a screenshot below of what that looks like.

Set your smart dial to ‘Paper’ and then follow the prompts. You will ‘Load’ and then press the Cricut button and watch it work it’s magic!

After your file is drawn I like to cut out the empty white space around the file. 

Iron on your Design

Grab your Infusible Ink T Shirt and place the piece of cardstock inside of the shirt. This protects the design from transferring onto the back of your shirt. 

Next you will place your paper that you used your pen on face down on your shirt where you’d like it to go. Make sure the side with the ink is the side touching the shirt.

Place your butcher paper on the top of the paper.

Heat your EasyPress 2 to 385 degrees and place it over the butcher paper for 40 seconds.

Take care not to move the iron, shirt or paper or you may end up with a smudgy looking image. Once the timer has ended, lift the iron straight up. Your papers and shirt are still hot so you could still mess up the ink if you move things around too much.

Once the paper has cooled, remove the butcher paper and sheet with the ink on it. You should be left with a sharp looking design like pictured below.

There you have it! A beautiful shirt for Valentine’s Day. Don’t get me wrong, I made these for my son, but I would also totally wear these six designs!
