My son is in marching band, it is a HUGE deal where we live, and for practice he got a water jug, but so did everyone else in the band. All the jugs are identical! So to help him personalize the jug, a little vinyl and soem cuts on my Cricut are in order!

Check out my vidoe to see how to layer the vinyl and add it to the water jug!
First I let me son pick out the colors and textures of the StyleTechCraft vinyl. He loved the holographic silver vinyl, which was a perfect fit for the clarinet. We needed to add a background to really make it pop, so craft blackwas the pick. For a little added fun I added a white circle beind the black one. He then found a fun opal blue vinyl that he wated for his name. So we loaded everything into my Cricut Design Space measurment out the space for each element on the jug so all the elements would fit.
I place all the colors of the vinyl on the mat and set it out cut, one cut and done if you space out the vinyl in the correct places. I did mess up on the black circle, so I had to redo the circle again at the bottom, no biggie we all make mistakes!
Now time to weed out the parts of the vinyl that is not needed. That opal vinyl is so cool!!!
I just love that silver holographic vinyl, it cut out the perfect clarinet!
Now time to layer everything up and place it on the jug. You start with the top layer first and attach it to the transfer tape, and work back in layers. The add it to the jug. Check out the video to see how easy it all is!
My son was super excited to use his jug, now it will not look like evryone else. YEA!!
I love how easy it is to personalize out everyday items that the kids use, what will you personalize?
