tropical monogram party tub

Make this bright and fun Tropical Monogram Party Tub for your next summer party!
Step 1

First, click here for the design link in Cricut® Design Space™.

Step 2

Add your initial or monogram to the middle; then, if needed, size the design 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.

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

Step 9

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