I Floss For Fun - T shirt Design

I never used to floss but my in-laws are always going on about the importance of dental hygiene so when I did start flossing I found that I actually enjoyed it. I thought it would be a random funny thing to put on a t-shirt and my wife and I finally started putting some screen-prints together so I knocked this out over the weekend. I wanted to work a tooth in some where to give the design a dental look and a molar just happened to make a good 'U' so that worked out. Then I had the idea to add floss itself through the text so that the text then represented the teeth being flossed. I made the floss flow with a happy-go-lucky style and then my wife suggested I should add the actual floss container to seal the deal. I printed it onto a yellow t-shirt that I got for x-mas from my brother-in-law and his girlfriend and I thought that gave it the soft look it needed.

Here is the result...
