Today I'm sharing the personalized tumblers that I made for my destination wedding guests. I put these inside of their Welcome Bags that I made and was surprised by how much my guests loved these, my dad is still using his years after our wedding. I got the idea for this from a past vacation my husband and I took, I read many reviews and found that bringing a large cup that keeps drinks cold is a commodity at all inclusive resorts and quickly went out to buy some Tervis'. For my wedding I wanted guests to be able to use something that would have them stand out as being part of our wedding party and to be a fun reminder of their trip.
I ordered the mugs from discountmugs.com and had planned on having them create some kind of a logo for the tumblers, but while searching for logo ideas I found several photos where vinyl was used and knew this would be a more affordable option and a project for my cricut! Supplies:
- 20 Tumblers
- Cricut cartridge - Winter Wonderland
- White Vinyl
Here is a photo of the tumblers I bought. I got tumblers with lids to keep everything contained. :) I did have several of the straw stoppers broken and all I had to do was call discountmugs.com, send them a photo and they sent me more straws. Definitely an awesome company!
This project was so easy! All that I had to do was attach the vinyl to the Cricut cutting mat and start inputting what I wanted my Cricut to cut out. The best part about vinyl is that it's sticky just like a sticker and the water from your drink sweating, the ocean, the pool does not cause it to come off. I decided on having 'Jamaica' on one side and the names of my guests on the opposite side. I eyeballed the location and made sure to keep a steady hand to keep the words straight.
They came out pretty awesome! I made a Bride and Groom one for hubby and I and put everyone's first name on their tumblers. The best part was other guests at the resort asking where we bought our tumblers ;)
Here are our tumblers in Jamaica! I was trying to get creative with the different pictures I could take with our wedding rings. It would be so easy to cut out different colored circles and create a polka dotted tumbler.
What designs would you do using vinyl?
