Personalizing waterbottles...

I am hoping to get some DISigns done on the Creative DISigns forum, and want to somehow apply them to water bottles (like sturdy reusable ones, not clear plastic disposable). Any thoughts on what to print the images onto that I can then transfer onto the bottles? I don't know much about Cricut machines or something similar, but can they print out any image or just from their specific cartridges? I do have a friend who uses one and seems to print out or cut out images with some adhesive plastic and apply that to products to personalize them (similar things I've seen on Etsy and other websites). Any suggestions or input on this?? Am I even making sense?! Thanks for any input!!

I can cut any stencil like image. Cricuts don't print. Vinyl is what I use. Sorry if I am not answering right.

Ok, so if I email my friend the design I want she should be able to cut the vinyl with her cricut? Just want to have my facts straight before I ask her! Thanks

Ok, thanks... I'll email her and find out if she can do it. Saw a few I liked on etsy, but was hoping to avoid paying shipping, higher prices, etc if someone local could do it for me!

I made these with a Cricut, adhesive vinyl and the Make the Cut program. You will need some way to cut from a computer rather than cartridges (Sure Cuts Alot or Make the Cut. Not sure about the Cricut/Provo Craft Studio program). Got the metal bottles in bulk online from a promotional materials site (there are tons of them).

Nice!!! The craft studio still limits you to what cartridges you have. Thanks for the tip on make the cut. I only new about sure cuts a lot. I do love sure cuts a lot, but I am glad there is options. I am doing bottles for MNSSHP soon!

Those are great! My friend confirmed she can do the designs I have from the DISign board, so now I have to get the plain water bottles. Will try to post a pic when they're done!

I got these at Dollar Tree last year and we made them for party favors for my DD's 12th birthday party (Hunger Games themed).





I used Sure Cuts a Lot and an older Cricut Expression, but now have a Cameo and the software it uses. They sell the adhesive vinyl at Joann's.
