Tumblers & Vinyl

I've been having some fun with vinyl and insulated tumblers lately.  I have made 5 of these so far as gifts for friends.  Here are my first two glasses.

This is a take-off of a popular coffee shop logo.  I am very pleased with the way it turned out.  My GF who got this one is completely addicted to coffee.  (Well, since she's prabably going to read this, let's just say she loves coffee very, very much). 

I used Make the Cut software to create the specialized design.  I have had this software since it was released, and it is super stuff.  But, I am slowwww in designing my own art, so I typically prefer to use Cricut cartridges when I can.  In this case, though, there was just no cartridge which would make the perfect design.

The second tumbler was for another friend who recently paticipated in a Warrior Dash.  I recreated the Warrior Dash logo for one side of the cup (with a little added color for a better show on the cup).  This cup was also completely designed using Make the Cut software.

The fire jumping part of the race was the part which worried her the most.  She did it, though!  So, on the other side of the cup I created a custon logo for her - Champion Fire Jumper - with a little flame!

These were a lot of fun to make, and I have several more to share here.  I also have a couple more still to design!  :-) 

Happy Crafting,

I love my tumbler, Charlotte! Thank you so much again for making it for me! I promise to get you a picture still if you'd like. :)

you did a great job on your tumblers!!! I just ordered some vinyl to try on a tumbler I bought for myself and my daughter.

I love your tumblers! I just went to the make a cut site and they say they no longer support cricut machines....? I want to be able to cut logos. Any ideas? I have a cricut expression cutter. Thanks!

do you have the starbucks logo for download?

Where did you get the tumbler for this?! SO cute.

Anonymous - Yeah, unfortunately, the current version of Make the Cut! software does not work with the CE. It works fabulously with other cutters, though, including the Silhouette Cameo! You can check out the Make the Cut forum for a lot more information about these other cutters. HTH!

Kailey - Thanks for asking! I do not have downloads available on my blog yet. Since I do not own the Starbucks logo, I would not feel OK about sharing it, anyway. You can make your own, though, for your personal use with Make the Cut (or SCAL - I'm sure) software. Have fun!

Shannon - I have been finding good deals on these tumblers on E-Bay. Good luck!

If I may ask, what font did you use and did you have to purchase the font?

how do you use two colors for the warrior hat?

Jennifer August 3, 2014 at 10:12 AM  

Hi, can I ask what you used to get the vinyl to stick to the tumbler? Thank you

Charlotte September 20, 2014 at 3:08 PM  

Jennifer - The vinyl comes with a sticky backside. :-) I generally buy mine off of Amazon because I can find the best color selection and get Prime shipping!

Anonymous - On the warrior hat, the way I get the 2 colors on the hat is to layer the colors. In this project, the base layer is red and the second layer is silver. I used transfer tape to build up the layers. HTH!

HELP! I'm a cheer mom trying to save some money and wanting to make spirit wear for our girls. We have our own little cheer logo that I'd love to add to cups, tshirts, etc. but just don't know where to start. I've purchased and applied iron-on vinyl and heat transfers for years, but I'd love to figure out a way t make these myself and just looking for advice on the best machine/package to invest in. Any advice would be SOOOOO welcomed and appreciated!
