Use these summer drink cooler cut files to personalize your summer entertaining gear!
The unofficial start of summer is almost here! We’ve already spent several nights enjoying the warm (but not too hot) weather on our back deck. I love eating dinner our deck and relaxing with a cold drink at the end of a long day. It’s the perfect way to unwind. And no need to go back and forth to the fridge for more drinks when you have a drink cooler handy. I love to personalize ALL.THE.THINGS and today I’m sharing my newest cut files with you… my summer drink cooler cut files.
How fun are these cut files? I love how the white pops against the blue cooler. I bought the cooler last year and have gotten a lot of compliments on it so I wanted to dress it up a bit this year. It’s going to look so good at our Memorial Day get together.
HOW TO USE THE DRINK COOLER CUT FILES
If you are not familiar with cut files, you may want to first read this post about how to use SVG files. SVG stands for scalable vector graphic and it is the format that most cut files come in. In addition to SVG format, I’m also offering the cut file as a DXF, and PNG. DXF files can be used with Silhouette Basic Edition software and PNG files are for use in either Illustrator, Photoshop, Canva or any other program that supports PNG files.
If you would like to make a project like the one shown above, here is what you will need:

Don’t want to use adhesive vinyl? No problem! There are many other ways that you can use these files. One of my favorite ways to use cut files is to customize clothing with heat transfer vinyl.
