teacher appreciation tumbler

Place a gift card inside a clear tumbler then add a fun message or quote to the front with vinyl to gift to a very appreciated teacher!
Step 1

Clean your tumbler with soap and water. Let dry.

Step 2

Click here for the design in Cricut® Design Space™.
TIP: Hide (or delete) the translated version you do not need.

Step 3

Now, click ‘Make It’ in the upper right corner, and then click ‘Continue’ in the lower right corner of your screen.

Step 4

Place the first layer of vinyl, grid-side down, onto your cutting mat and load it into your Cricut® machine. Select ‘Vinyl’ as your material and follow the prompts to cut out your design. Once the machine has finished cutting, carefully peel the vinyl away from your mat. Repeat for your second vinyl layer.

Step 5

Use scissors to cut away the vinyl around your design. Next, use your weeder tool to peel away the remaining negative around, and within, your design. When you’re done, only the design itself should be left on the backer paper.

Step 6

Cut a piece of transfer tape that’s just a bit larger than the design. Peel away the tape’s backer paper and place the tape, sticky-side down, over the bottom layer of your design. Burnish the vinyl so that it is completely stuck to the tape.

Step 7

Now, gently peel the white backer paper from the cut-out design, which now should be stuck to the transfer tape.

Step 8

Hold the transfer tape with the design over your surface to determine where you’d like it placed. Press it onto your surface. Burnish the vinyl once more to make sure it’s completely stuck to the surface and gently peel away the transfer tape, leaving the vinyl transferred to your surface.

Step 9

Repeat Steps 6-8 for each layer. Work from the bottom of your design to the top layer.
