So if you have followed my projects for a while, you know by now how much I adore all things personalized!!!! When my crafty mama friend Emily showed me her tumbler, I knew I had to make one. While she used acrylic paint to decorate hers I turned to my trusty Cricut and used some vinyl for mine. And with some girls throwing me and my little bean a baby shower, I decided to make some for thank you/appreciation presents for them.
Process and Supplies:
- Vinyl sheets for the Cricut (got mine online super cheap)
- Double walled tumblers from Wal Mart (These are not dishwasher safe)
- Clear paint sealant for acrylic from Michaels (This is dishwasher safe)
- Small foam paint brush to apply sealant
I cut out the vinyl with my Cricut in a 4" letter and 2.5" burst shapes using the Lyrical Letters cartridge. Attached the letters to the tumblers and then sealed the outside of the tumblers with the sealant. (Memo: You can't wash the tumblers for 10 days with the sealant because it takes that long for it to permanently seal into the plastic. The actual dry time is about 3 minutes, but it will permanently alter the cup so it can be washed over and over without coming off or spoiling.)
Finished project....Love me some reusable and personalized cups!
