Alright alright alright! Christmas is almost here and it is time to finish up those DIY presents you thought were a really good idea about a month ago. For my work friends, I’m making personalized tumblers using my Cricut Explore Air 2!
Here’s what you need:
- Cricut Explore Air 2 – Emerald color available at Walmart!
- Permanent Vinyl in your chosen color (this is teal!)
- Transfer tape
- Clear Tumblers
- Optional: confetti!
Here we go:
First, get your design ready in Cricut’s Design Space. When it’s cut out, cut a piece of transfer tape to approximately the same size as your design.
Remove the transfer tape and smooth it over the top of your vinyl design. Use the scraper that comes with your Cricut to help adhere the transfer tape to the vinyl.
Peel the excess vinyl away from the transfer tape, making sure that the design stays attached to the transfer tape. This can be done with your hands when you have a simple design but might need the weeding tools if the design is more complex.
Your design will be the only thing left on the transfer tape!
Carefully place your design on the tumbler and make sure that it is where you want it to be. When you have it in the correct place, smooth the design down with the scraper. Slowly peel the transfer paper back – the design should remain attached to the tumbler.
For a fun extra touch, I add confetti to the inside of the tumbler and then tie a tulle bow around it. I’ll probably also put a hand cream or gift card in the tumbler too! It turned out super cute and was so easy!!
