Hi Friends! Do you love to personalize things?? So do I! It makes such a difference between a gift and an amazing gift. People love to receive items that are handmade and that have their name on it. This is one of the many reasons I love my Cricut Explore! You can customize anything and save so much money on making gifts for friends or loved ones. Today I have a quick tutorial on how to glitter a tumbler and a whole set of FREE split letter monogram files.

This is one of my last glitter tumbler tutorials for you and I finally made a video of the first part of the process! I know, a little backwards, but it’s also one of the easiest steps. This time I purchased a powder coated clearance mug at Wal-Mart for $5 so I didn’t even have to spray paint the bottom coat! Check out the video tutorial on how to apply the mod podge and glitter below!
Once the glitter layer is dry, you will want to add your first layer of epoxy. For my full tutorial on how to apply epoxy resin with video click here! If you would prefer to use mod podge instead of epoxy, click here for tutorial.
After your first layer of epoxy is completely dry, you’ll want to add your vinyl (I used holographic vinyl) decal. Check out my tutorial here on how to apply vinyl to a stainless steel cup easily. I added the split letter monogram with a name on the front and an image I found on google of a dog to the back. Then you’ll apply the second layer of epoxy resin and you’re done! The holographic vinyl is fun and looks different colors in different lighting. I love it!

You can use the script split letter monogram files to personalize bags, tiles, mugs, signs, t-shirts, etc… But please for personal use only. Tiles are an inexpensive and easy gift to make for weddings or anniversaries. Here is a different split letter monogram tile I made last year just to give you an example.
