Happy New Year! Who’s ready to ring in the new year?! What’s a better way to ring in the new year than with brand new projects using your Brother ScanNCut. I love how versatile this machine is and how diverse the projects are that can be made with this machine. You can create a fun, fashionable jacket to super fun drinkware. The options are endless. The only thing that limits what can be created is your creativity because this machine can create just about anything.

To ring in the New Year, I thought it’d be fun to create some custom drinkware. This project is great because it’s very inexpensive and easy to do. We love beginner friendly projects over here! Simply pick up some glasses at a dollar store, visit the Brother website for your choice of vinyl and you’re ready to get started. These glasses would be so cute in your home as a pretty addition to your bar cart. These glasses would also make for a great gift. If you’re thinking about gifting these to a friend, adhere the same design on a wine bag (don’t forget the wine!) and you have the perfect gift.

Don’t let the celebration end here! Use this file to create sweatshirts, t-shirts, tote bags, and more!


  1. Upload the design into CanvasWorkspace, and resize to a width of 4 inches. Be sure that you add the disco ball as a layer and resize it to fit. One thing that I liked added to this file is a weeding box. This is optional but it helps a lot.

  5. Set your machine up to cut a half cut. Be sure to test the cut prior to cutting out your design. When your test cut comes out perfect, proceed with cutting out your design.
