The Super Bowl is coming up this weekend and we’re keeping things low-key with a simple menu and few guests. It’s a bit different than what’s happened in year’s passed, but I really haven’t been very engaged in sports this year (my teams, all of them, are playing AWFUL).
If I am being completely honest, I can’t even name BOTH of the teams in playing in the game this year. However, I am absolutely aware of who’s playing the half-time show and you better believe I have a full (Weight Watchers-friendly) menu planned.
My Spotify has been tuned in to Justin Timberlake all week and I’ve shopped for all of the ingredients in my white bean chicken chili, as well as a tray of “lighter” nachos. The last task at hand? Pulling together a suitable outfit! I’ve been working hard at loosing weight and so I am not purchasing anything new now. The answer? Updating a plain t-shirt in my closet with a bit of vinyl.
In light of my lack of interest in the NFL as a whole, this I’m Just Here for the Nachos Cut File is perfect for my t-shirt and the occasion!
Just Here for the Nachos Cut File
To recreate this t-shirt with the Just Here for the Nachos Cut File, you will need:
Just Here for the Nachos Cut File PNG or SVG
Electronic Cutting Machine (I am using this one.)
(I buy all of my heat transfer from Expressions Vinyl.)
Heat Press or Iron (I use this press.)
- Download the cut file in the format that works best for you (see supply list above).
- Upload the design to your design software and create the appropriately sized layout. I sized this cut file to about eight inches wide.
- Mirror the image so that the text appears backwards on the screen. Feed the heat transfer material into your machine with the glossy side down. Select HTV in the media menu and cut.
- Peel the negative space in the design off the plastic backing, leaving only the words and shapes on the clear plastic transfer sheet.
- Pre-heat the t-shirt you’re planning to transfer the design on for about five seconds and crease the center for reference creating a vertical line for reference.
- Position the design face down so that you see it through the clear transfer sheet. Your text should be facing the right direction at this point.
- Place a thin cloth or parchment paper over the design and place a heat on top PRESSING FIRMLY into the design for 45-60 seconds OR if you have this amazing little portable heat press 15-20 seconds!
- Remove the iron and cloth. Gently peel up the transfer sheet. If the HTV continues to stick to the transfer sheet, replace the cloth and iron again making sure to apply pressure.
Note: Follow the instructions on your HTV to determine if the transfer sheet should be pulled back when the vinyl is still hot or if you should wait until it’s cooled.
I totally am JUST HERE FOR THE NACHOS folks…the nachos and JT. If you use this Just Here for the Nachos Cut File, be sure to send me a photo. I’d love to see your creation!
