Hello! My name is Lizzy from Crafting by Lizzy and today I am sharing how to personalize a water bottle using Kassa’s Holographic Vinyl! There are 10 different shades in Kassa’s holographic collection, and each one is GORGEOUS. For today’s tutorial, I am using Pearl White. I’m so excited to show you the process of how I personalized this water bottle. Let’s get started!
Step 1: Lay Your Materials Out
To stay organized, I like to grab all the materials I need for a project before I get started. For this project, go ahead and grab a:
- Kassa Permanent Holographic Vinyl Sheet
- Blank water bottle
- SVG File
- Transfer tape
- Weeding tool
Step 2: Working in Design Space
If you are using an SVG file, upload it to Cricut Design Space, or create your own!
Once uploaded, resize it to how big or small you want it to be.
When you are finished resizing, select the entire image, right click and hit “Attach”. This ensures all of the pieces cut exactly how it looks on the screen.
Step 3: Cutting the Vinyl
Cut out a piece of holographic vinyl about 4” by 4” and load it shiny side up on your cutting mat.
In Cricut Design Space, I selected “Holographic Sparkle Vinyl” as my cut setting and used normal pressure.
Hit “Go” on your Cricut, and watch your design cut out!
Step 4: Weed the Design
After the Cricut has finished cutting your design, it’s time to weed. With the shiny side up, carefully remove the excess pieces of vinyl so that only the words remain. You can do this with your fingers or a weeding tool. I am using the cricut weeding tool.
Step 5: Applying Transfer Tape
We are almost ready to apply the design to the water bottle! But first, we have to transfer it on to the transfer tape.
Cut a piece of transfer tape the same size as your design and carefully place it on top of your design, making sure there are no air bubbles underneath. Use a scraper or credit card and gently apply even pressure to the whole design ensuring that the vinyl will have a good grip on the transfer tape.
When you think it’s ready, flip the design over and peel. The design should stick right to the transfer tape, but if not that’s okay! You can repeat the scraping process until the vinyl is transferred properly.
Step 6: Applying the Design to the Water Bottle
Tip: cut tiny slits around the perimeter of the transfer tape. This will allow the vinyl to transfer to the bottle much easier without bubbles or messed up lines.
Carefully place your vinyl where you want it to go on the water bottle and gently press the design with your fingers. You can also use the scraping tool we used in the previous step.
Gently peel off the transfer tape and you have a beautiful customized holographic water bottle!
