Nothing says retro cool like Palm Springs style! These Palm Spring cocktails come in cut files and clip art files and are perfect for all of your summer swag—tote bags, coozies, and tank tops. Plus see how I put these swanky files on coasters!
There is just something quintessential about the Palm Springs vibe—it’s a bit retro, relaxed, and oh-so-cool. I’ve been to Palm Springs a handful of times and every time I go, all I want to do is drink a fruity cocktail while sitting by the pool overlooking the California desert. When I designed this set of cut files (and coordinating clip art files), I really wanted to get that relaxed vintage Palm Spring vibe. And I love how they turned out! I even added a funny little quote about…staying hydrated. *wink*
You can do a lot with this file. I’ve made these coasters using inexpensive blank cardboard coasters. I just layered regular iron-on vinyl (I’m a big fan of iron-on vinyl over regular vinyl—it sticks to surfaces like card stock, cardboard, and wood much better than traditional adhesive vinyl!). I used my Cricut EasyPress and it was really quite easy. To be honest—I’m no sure how practical these are, now that I’ve made them. I think I will actually ModPodge them before using them as coasters—I’m not sure how the condensation on a glass will play with the vinyl. Live and learn, eh? It was a fun project to test out, though! I am pleased to say that adhering the iron on vinyl to the coasters was effortless!
There is also a line-drawing layer in this file—this comes in looking dark gray in Cricut Design Space (don’t freak out!). Just turn all of the dark gray lines into draw lines (instead of cut lines) and you can use the Cricut pen to draw for paper and Print Then Cut projects. Or you can turn this layer off and cut in other materials. Layer the files or use them individually—it’s a delicious little bundle of files!
