August 6th, 2018 • Contributor: Jessica Roe from Everyday Party Magazine

Hi there! I am SO.IN.LOVE with the new Cricut Premium Permanent Vinyl! It’s easy to remove from the packaging, it lays flat on the cutting mat without ninja skills, and it cuts and weeds like a dream!

Armed with my new Premium Permanent Vinyl, Design Space Access, a Cricut, and a plain cup begging for some vinyl, I got to work and made the coolest insulated tumbler ever!

Supplies to Make Your Own Octopus Tentacle Glasses:

1: Measure the Cup

Measure your cup’s height and circumference.

2: Create Your Design

Open Design Space (or use this cut file) and adjust the tentacles to fit your cup.

3: Cut Out Tentacles

Apply the Premium Permanent Vinyl to the Cutting Mat, and send the design to your Cricut to cut.

4: Weed the Vinyl

Remove the excess vinyl from the design.

5: Add to the Cup

Apply Transfer Tape to each tentacle, and apply to the cup. Have fun with this and place them where you want them; this is your cup, after all.

I wiped the cup with an alcohol swab and allowed it to dry before I applied the tentacles one at a time.

6: Take It to the Beach

Fill your new one of a kind cup with ice and a beverage and enjoy it seaside on a warm night!

NOTE: This vinyl is permanent, but since not all dishwashers are the same, it is not recommended for use in a dishwasher. I did not wash my cup for about 2 days after applying the vinyl.

Pin this for later and show us yours by using #CricutMade!
