Do you drink coffee? How about water? Like to keep your margaritas frosty while poolside? Then this vinyl craft idea is perfect for you. DIY vinyl cups are a great project for even the occasional crafter. You can customize these cups to say whatever you want! They’re great for travel, perfect for gifting, and they encourage us to drink more water. Who wouldn’t want to add one of these adorable cups to their travel mug collection?
I think a set of these will be a MUST at the next girls night gathering. DIY vinyl cups are fun to make and the end result is so cute! I think you could even use one of these adorable cups to encourage yourself to drink more water. I find that a straw cup (one that is especially fun and festive) can help me drink more water, and get closer to my healthy lifestyle goals. Crafting also helps in that area…a few moments of calm and distracted bliss can help reset those anxious feelings!

Directions to Make Your Own DIY Vinyl Cups:
Measure the space on your straw cup to see what size your decal should be. Open the file in your cutting software and resize according to your cups. Cut the vinyl and remove from the machine.
Use an xacto knife to remove the center pieces of the letters. I like to ‘stab’ the vinyl to pull away the material. Use the hook to remove other parts of the vinyl if necessary.
Cut a piece of transfer tape the same size as the decal. Remove the backing and place the sticky side onto the front of the decal. Smooth the transfer tape onto the decal with the scraper tool. Press firmly.
Remove the vinyl backing and place onto the cup.
Use the scraper to firmly adhere the vinyl to the cup.
Gently remove the transfer tape.
Repeat with the desired number of cups.
To Care for DIY Vinyl Cups: Hand wash only to preserve the sayings.
