Teaching is a tough job. When we come across a teacher that goes the extra mile to make sure that students are taken care of, I like to make sure they know how appreciated they are. Gifts like this "Nacho Average Teacher" Shirt are a fun way to say thank you, and will definitely make your favorite teachers smile. You can even go the extra mile yourself by pairing it with nacho ingredients or a restaurant gift card! See how I made this shirt and grab the cut file so you can create something "cheesy" for all of the teachers in your life, too!

To make your own Nacho Average Teacher shirt, you'll need these supplies:

Nacho Average Teacher Cut File in Cricut Design Space

Upload the "Nacho Average Teacher" cut file into Design Space and size the image to fit your shirt. Make sure to mirror your image before cutting the iron-on vinyl! Otherwise, your design will be backwards when you put it on the shirt. To do this, select the mat thumbnail in Design Space before cutting, and click the "Mirror" toggle to reverse the image.

Place the vinyl face-down on the mat and load it into the machine. Change the material settings to the type of vinyl you are cutting, and then click the "Go" button to cut the vinyl.

"Weed" the excess vinyl by removing all of the parts that don't belong in the design. I usually peel away the outer edges starting at the corner and working my way around the design. Then I use weeding tools to remove the smaller pieces of the design.

Nacho Average Teacher Shirt with Cricut EasyPress

Plug in the EasyPress 2 and power it on. Each kind of HTV has a different heat and time setting, so be sure to check the recommended EasyPress settings before getting started. Adjust the heat and time setting to your shirt and vinyl specifications. Once the light turns green and the machine beeps, it's ready to use.

When the EasyPress is up to temperature, place your shirt on the EasyPress Mat and preheat the area for 5-10 seconds. Lay the HTV down on the shirt, with the clear carrier sheet facing up. Set the EasyPress over the vinyl and press the green "C" button. Hold firmly in place while the timer counts down. Turn the shirt over and press the EasyPress firmly again for 15 seconds. Peel off the carrier sheet while the vinyl is still warm.

If you use different vinyls like I did, it's important to protect the vinyl that's already been pressed. Place the other cuts of vinyl onto the shirt, and cover with the Cricut Iron-On Protective Sheet. Press the vinyl into place with the EasyPress 2 the same way and remove the carrier sheets while the vinyl is still warm.

The cut file comes with multiple file types, so you can actually cut the design with any vinyl cutting machine. All I ask is that you use the file for personal use only. I hope you enjoy using this cut file, and I would absolutely LOVE to see your creations!!
