Give your plain 'ole cup a makeover with this beautiful SparkleBerry Ink designed vinyl!
Step 1

First, click here for the design; then open a new project in Cricut® Design Space™. Upload the file.

TIP:
To do this:

  • Click on the ‘Upload’ icon in the left panel.
  • Click ‘Image Upload’, then ‘Browse’. Find the file on your computer and double click to bring the image into the ‘Image Upload’ preview screen.
  • Choose ‘Simple’ and remove all of the negative space around and within the design with the ‘Select & Erase’ tool.
  • Click ‘Continue’
  • Choose the ‘Save as a cut image’ option, enter an image name and click ‘Save’
  • Now choose the uploaded image and bring it into your canvas.
Step 2
If needed, size to fit your surface.
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 your sheet 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, gently peel the vinyl away from your mat. Repeat for each layer, as shown in the preview panel of your screen.

Step 5

Use scissors to cut away the vinyl around your design. Next, use your weeder tool to peel away the remaining negative space surrounding the 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 each layer of your design. Peel away the tape’s backer paper and place the tape, sticky-side down, over the cut-out design piece. Burnish the vinyl so that it’s completely stuck to the tape.
TIP: Use rubbing alcohol to clean the tumbler in the area where you plan to add your vinyl design. This will remove any oils or smudges that might keep the vinyl from fully adhering to the surface.

Step 7

Now, gently peel the white backer paper from the design layer, which now should be stuck to the transfer tape.
TIP: For a design with multiple layers, be sure to start with the bottom layer and work up to the top layer.

Step 8

Hold the transfer tape with your design over your tumbler to determine where you’d like it placed; then press it onto your tumbler. Burnish the vinyl once more to make sure it’s completely stuck to the tumbler and gently peel away the transfer tape. Your first, or bottom, layer has now been transferred to your tumbler.

Step 9

Repeat Steps 6-8 for the remaining layers until your entire design has been transferred to your tumbler.
TIP: Once you’ve added vinyl to your tumbler, be sure to wash it by hand only.
