5 Fun Summer Cricut Crafting Blanks

I know crafters are always on the hunt for fun new blanks to customize so I thought I’d make a list of some of my favs for the Summer! I’ve linked the exact products that I’ve used as I was really happy with the quality of everything. (Links are affiliate links which means I make a small commission at no additional cost to you!)

  1. DIY Drink Pouches

Oh man, I loved Capri Suns when I was a kid so when I saw these I was so excited! These are definitely a novelty but so much fun to make and easy to take to the beach or to a BBQ. You can do any combination of drink you’d like but my top tip is to leave enough room to add some ice for when you’re ready to drink them! I added some cute sayings to the pouch with permanent vinyl then filled them up. The pack I ordered came with a funnel which made filling them super easy.

I think these would be super cute for a party or Bachelorette if you want to have a signature drink that you’d like to have pre-mixed and ready to go.

2. Drink Spikes

We have beach chairs that are very low to the ground and don’t have a cup holder so these are so handy. They definitely help reduce the amount of sand going into your drink and you can customize them to your liking with permanent vinyl! I ordered these in a multi pack that came in a variety of colors. There’s even a little slot that is separate from the cup holder that will fit your phone or other small items.

3. Popsicle/Freezie Pop holders

These are such a hit with kids and are so easy to customize! You can add a name or a cute Summer saying by applying heat transfer vinyl to them. I use my Cricut EasyPress Mini to make these as the small surface size is perfect to get between the raised edges of the holder. I recommend using a piece of teflon or some other protectant between the holder and your heat source.

4. Tote Bags

If you’re anything like me, you already have an epic collection of tote bags yet I still seem to keep making them haha! I’ve linked the exact brand of totes I buy from Amazon as they’re such good quality and are reasonably priced too. They even have a few colors available, depending on what quantities you purchase them in. It’s so easy customizing your totes with heat transfer vinyl and I like to use them as gift bags when I’m giving a gift to someone, multi purpose! You could even use these for screen printing!

5. Color Changing Cups

Coloring changing cups definitely aren’t new to the scene but I recently found these small sized ones (16oz) that are perfect for kids. We recently were invited to a 4 year old’s birthday and I thought this would be the perfect addition to his gift. He’s a big fan of tractors so I added one of those with permanent vinyl and put his name on the back.

What are your favorite things to customize in the Summer? Let me know in the comments!
