Patriotic Party Cups With Kassa Adhesive Vinyl

Hi, friends! Kayla here from Kayla Makes with a quick and easy, patriotic DIY. Keep reading and I’ll show you how simple it is to use Kassa adhesive vinyl to turn plain dispoable drinkware into fun, customized party decor.


Step One: Design Set Up

To begin, upload the free stars and stripes SVG into Design Space and then use the shapes tool to create multiple sizes of stars and duplicate them until you have enough to cover the number of cups you plan to decorate.

Step Two: Load and Cut

Place the sheet of vinyl on the cutting mat with the colored side facing up and load the mat into the machine. Double check that the correct blade is loaded and the machine is set to the vinyl cut setting. Then, press the flashing start button to begin cutting.

Repeat this step for each color of vinyl.

Step Three: Weed Images

After cutting is complete, remove the excess vinyl from around the designs using a weeding tool where necessary to remove the smaller pieces.

Step Four: Apply Transfer Tape/Transfer Images

Apply a piece of transfer tape over the vinyl and use a scraper tool to apply pressure over the entire design.

Align the decal onto the cup and press down firmly using your fingers or the scraper tool again. Carefully remove the transfer tape, leaving behind just the vinyl decal on the cup.

The stars can easily be placed by hand. Just peel them away from the paper backing and place them around the cup.

Alternate applying red, white and blue stars until the cup is covered.

That’s all there is to it! You can even add a festive paper straw for an extra pop of color.

These cups are a great way to add a bit of customization to any party and they’re much more affordable than their predecorated counterparts.
