Whether it’s graduating from elementary, high school, or college, this year’s graduates definitely deserve a round of applause! If you’re planning on making gifts for any recent grads, this Custom Graduation Tumbler is the perfect way to celebrate their accomplishments.
It can be gifted just by itself (and who couldn’t use a new tumbler!) or you can fill it with additional gifts like in the picture above. Most of the items were inexpensively bought at dollar and big box stores. You could even add a gift card if you’re feeling fancy!
Making a Custom Graduation Tumbler
Making one of these cute tumblers is super easy with the help of your handy Cricut Joy and Smart Vinyl! Using fonts and images that were included with Cricut Access made designing this projects so super easy.
Since I wanted to use different types of Smart Vinyl (Shimmer & Permanent), I sliced the two layers together. This created a cut-out section in the black “GRAD” image for the silver name to lay flat on the tumbler.
This made designing and layering a little more complicated but the finished look was so worth it!
Graduation Card & Chocolates
Of course, no graduate gift would be complete without a greeting card and some tasty goodies. No worries…Cricut has got you covered with those too!
I wanted to keep with the whole “GRAD” theme so I found a “ConGRADulations” design and used it to make a Cricut Joy Insert Card.
Since it wasn’t specifically made for insert cards, I had to adjust the size a bit to cut correctly. Super easy to do if you open an insert card file in Design Space and just copy the dimensions.
Making the mini candy wrappers is just as easy as the card! I used Cricut Joy™ Smart Label™ Writable Vinyl and the machine wrote and cut the stickers for me. All I had to do was peel the stickers from the backing and apply to the chocolates!
Making Multiple Graduation Gifts
The best thing about this project is that, whether you’re making one gift or twenty gifts, the Cricut Joy makes it so easy to accomplish! I thought it would be fun to randomly select three followers on IG with Graduation Tumblers for their kids so I had my work cut out for me.
I created three different color schemes in Design Space to match the colors of each of their different schools. All I had to do was send all the cut files over to my Joy and it told me which colors to load. Making all three customized graduation tumblers was totally a breeze!
Hope you enjoy making these Easy Custom Graduation Tumblers for the amazing graduates in your life! Leave me a comment if you’ve got any questions!
