Bride sweatshirt, Mrs/Mr ring trinket tray, and a bride tumbler

My best friend recently got engaged and being a crafter and a gift giver I was SO excited to start making cute little "bride" gifts. Here are a few things that I made that were pretty simple to make, but she loved!


1. A "Bride" Cup

This is such an easy and cute gift to give! My best friend loves rose gold, so this vinyl was the perfect option. You can customize this specifically for your bride by changing up the font to meet their style as well as the color of the vinyl and the phrase! I've seen cups with sayings such as "Wifey", "Future Mrs.", "Mrs. (last name)", etc. You can totally do this for a bachelorette party too!

Or check out how to apply vinyl to any curved surface here.

Make sure you use permanent vinyl and let them know that it is suggested to hand wash your cup!

2. A Ring Trinket Tray

Your bride to be is going to need a place to store her new ring! A trinket tray can be customized by adding just a bit of vinyl.

The most important how-to for making the trinket tray would be weeding your vinyl and using transfer tape! Learn more about transfer tape here.

3. A Custom Sweatshirt

Probably my favorite option is making a sweatshirt. I customized hers using iron-on vinyl (HTV) to add "bride" on the collar so it wasn't as "flashy" and then added "I do" on the left sleeve, so when she shows of her ring it would show! You could customize this SO many ways depending on your bride! I also think it would be so cute to add the wedding or engagement date on the sleeve under the "I do". My best friend likes a flashy but subtle design, so I thought this was perfect fir her!

With iron-on it is most important to remember to mirror your design!

I added all of these gifts in a box with a little notes so that it was a whole experience to open! I love how you can customize the gifts to fit any type of bride.
