TACO + BEER T-SHIRT
To make it, open:Taco + Beer Design Space FileWhen making the t-shirts, you're going to use Iron-On (HTV) in whatever color works with the t-shirt you bought! To make the shirt, use the same step-by-step instructions as I explained for the Taco and Beer Menu Signs.
The only difference is that you need to set set your material as Iron-On and then you'll use an EasyPress 2 - 9x9 (or whatever you have) to apply the Iron On onto the t-shirt! Make sure and use the Cricut EasyPress Heat Guide to determine the heat and time need for your shirt material!
Make sure and use the Cricut EasyPress Heat Guide to determine the heat and time! I did these designs on the LOW setting on my EasyPress Mini for 30 seconds with a Cold Peel.
CUSTOMIZED TACO TRAY
I ended up ordering these brown food trays to serve the tacos in! To theme them I wanted to add a little vinyl in the tray! I used the same Design Space file that I used for the napkins, but sized them to fit in the trays!
Cheers and Beers Design for Accessories Design Space FileWhen making the taco trays, I used Removable Premium Vinyl in Navy Blue! To make them, use the same step-by-step instructions as I explained for the Taco and Beer Menu Signs. But, set your material to Removable Premium Vinyl and DO NOT mirror your design.After you cut the vinyl, using your Weeding Tool to weed the excess vinyl from around the design and apply Transfer Tape over the vinyl words. Use your fingers to make sure the design is adhered to the transfer tape good and apply the words to the brown serving trays!
