“Sweetie, you are not putting Star Wars characters in Santa hats on your Christmas cards, are you?” M4P Mom asked in a worried tone last week.
One of the things I do as my day job, is designing custom, high-end cards. So needless to say, I always design our own Christmas cards. I have been working on this year’s design for a month now. I never give any sneak peeks, and my mom was concerned, thinking with the movie and all, the cards were going to be Star Wars themed. Because that would be just…. Wrong.
Well mom, I will not tell you whether or not Star Wars will be featured on the cards, (though for the record, it never has before), but, thanks for the idea!
So all this week, I will have downloadable stencil patterns of, you got it, Star Wars characters in Santa hats.
Enjoy. And, THANKS Mom, I love you too.
Of course, as always, we ask you not to make and sell these. A, because Lucas Film and Disney owns the rights to all characters, and B, because we made the designs and it would be unfair for you to make money off them. We also we want to remind you that we should get credit when they are used. So, if you show your work using our designs anywhere (online as well), put a “Pattern © Anette Nam Design” and link to “Maythefourthbewithyouparty.com” somewhere close by. THANK YOU!

- Down-load the pattern below.
- Load pdf file on computer, and reverse the image.
- Cut out on Cameo. (There are lots and lots of great You Tube tutorials on how to use your Cameo to cut out vinyl, so I will not get into how to use the machine here.) OR print out on printer, place on vinyl and cut through both paper and vinyl layers by hand (NOT the clear plastic layer).
- Weed the vinyl sheet (get rid of all the unwanted little pieces), I find an X-acto knife is best for this.
- Close cut the shapes, so there is just a little bit of the sticky clear plastic around each piece.
- Lay them out (sticky side down) on the T-shirt, cover with cotton fabric, and iron for about a minute (on cotton setting, with no steam).
- Carefully peel the clear plastic off.
- Let cool for a while.
