How to Make Personalized Water Bottles With Cricut – The Basics
The easiest way to make personalized water bottles with Cricut is to cut the design you want from Cricut self-adhesive vinyl.
Load your image into Cricut and cut the design using the fine-cut blade.
After the image has been cut, weed away the negative space and apply transfer tape to the front of the image.
Peel away the backing from the vinyl design and place it on the water bottle.
Burnish the design onto the water bottle so it adheres well before removing the transfer tape.
Alternatively, you can cut your water bottle designs from vinyl sticker paper.
Simply peel the sticker off the backing and place it on the water bottle to customize it any way you like.

Resize The Image To Fit Your Water Bottle
Measure the surface area on the water bottle that you want to cover with the vinyl design.
Use a fabric tape measure to do this so you can measure around the curve of the bottle.
Resize your chosen design to ensure it will fit the way you want it to when you apply it.

Cut Out The Design Using Vinyl
Place your vinyl sheet on a regular cutting mat and set the machine to cut vinyl with a fine tip blade.
Once the cuts are made, weed away the negative space in the design. Leave the design on the vinyl backing.
Apply Transfer Tape and Place the Design
Transfer Tape makes it possible for you to achieve the exact placement of your design by gripping the design from the front and giving you a grid for placement.
- Stick the transfer tape to the front of the design then pull the backing off of the vinyl.
- Use the transfer tape to place the vinyl where you want it.
- Burnish the design firmly onto the water bottle, then peel off the transfer tape.
- That’s it! You’ve customized your water bottle, and the sky’s the limit for design ideas.
Water bottles are a great way to show your personality and stay hydrated.
You can find water bottles in all sorts of colors, sizes, and designs, but sometimes it can be hard to find one that represents you.
That’s where Cricut comes in! With Cricut, you can design and make your personalized water bottle perfect for you.
