Do you struggle to wonder what Dad really wants? Let’s make it easy on all of us! If he likes to drink ANYTHING from a glass bottle, aka Beer, Rootbeer, Orange Soda, or even specialty waters, I’ve got the Best Dad Ever SVG Free for you! Plus a fun project to put those best dad SVG files to use.
This is also the Monthly SVG Bundle I share with you from my crafty friends & me, and the theme this month is Father’s Day!
One of the reasons I love this project is how easy it is to make. I used HTV (heat transfer vinyl) for the beverage carrier. I then used permanent vinyl for the bottle opener.
I applied the same SVG on both sides of both items, but you can personalize them more. You decide!
I made the Best Dad Ever SVG 4″ once inside Cricut Design Space and it seemed to fit the beverage holder perfectly. I will let you in on a little secret, LOL!
After I made this the first time, I went back into Adobe Illustrator and increased the size of the dot on the small I and the dot after Co. Then I made another beverage holder with the updated file and I loved it much better and I believe you will too!
Much easier to weed without having a small dot flip into outer space in your craft room. Ha!
The SVG I used for the bottle opener I sized to 3.5″ high and this fit perfectly as well. In fact, it makes good use of your vinyl scraps as well. Got to love when that happens!

Upload into Cricut Design Space, then add to the canvas
Ungroup the 2 SVGs.
Size your designs to fit your project. If you are making this specific project, I sized the Logo to 4″. I sized the bottle opener to 3.5″ High.
Be sure to select the entire Logo design and then select “Attach” so it will cut out together on one mat. The other colors will each have their own mats per color.
Click on “Make It”
Select your Cricut machine and materials. Be sure to mirror if using any “HTV” (heat transfer vinyl) or Infusible Ink.
Once ready to cut, you will only need your fine point blade for either project.
If using HTV as I did for the Logo, place your HTV shiny side down on either the blue or green mat.
Press “load” then “go”
Once cut, turn the mat upside down and remove HTV from the mat.
Now let’s weed the bottle opener pieces, being sure to keep the backer sheet for the 2 bottle pieces as shown below. You will be adding the words: Best, Dad, and Ever to the bottle backer sheet since this design has no solid piece.
Once weeded, place the Best, Dad, and Ever carefully spaced evenly between the top bottle part and bottom bottle part.
Apply transfer tape to the entire design on top of the backer sheet
Clean bottle opener with alcohol and lint-free cloth to ensure the vinyl will stick firmly
Peel the backer sheet off carefully
Carefully line up design and apply design, then firmly rub into place to ensure a good tight seal of vinyl to the bottle opener.
Now peel off the transfer sheet to reveal you’re amazing work!
Let’s complete the beverage holder
Carefully weed the Logo design
Measure the beverage carrier. Mine measured 7 1/2″ across. I used a pencil to mark a line at the top and bottom of the carrier at 3 7/5″. Once HTV is applied you can simply erase the pencil marks.
I used the Heat Press Guide found here For this project using my Easy Press 2. It is a 5-sec pre-heat @315° and applies design for 30 seconds @315° with a cool peel.
Place design and press for 30 sec.
Pressing 30 seconds then cooling off before peeling off the transfer sheet
And once again we reveal your ah-mazing project to your loved ones!
