Hello, friends! Today, we’re sharing a fun and easy vinyl project that is perfect for a Back to School teacher gift…just fill with a gift card or single serve Crystal Light packets, tie with a ribbon, and you have an amazing gift that anyone would love! Here’s the how-to:

Step 1: All you need for this project are the decal kits from Belvedere Designs (click here for the Single Monogram Tumbler Decal Kit, and here for the Triple Monogram Decal Kit) and plain acrylic tumblers (I used these from Amazon).

Gather your supplies, and get ready to begin….

Step 2: Let’s begin! We’ll be doing this in two parts. We’ll first apply the initial decal and then we’ll apply the polka dot decals. First, place the initial on the cup, and, using the tape as a hinge, flip up decals and peel off backing. Lay decal back down carefully. Starting from the center, squeegee the vinyl decals firmly. Carefully peel back the transfer tape. To do this, start at a corner and peel the transfer tape off at a 180 degree angle-back and down rather than up and away. If necessary, use your fingers to press down on the letters as you peel back the tape.

Step 3: Using the same technique, apply each of your polka dots onto your tumblers.

And that’s it! I made two for my son’s preschool teachers at the end of last year and filled with them single serve drink packets. I kept the third tumbler for myself 🙂
