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!)
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.
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.

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.
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!

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!
