Yes, I am coming back with another Super Mario Bros inspired DIY post. This time we’re making a Super Mario Bros inspired Starbucks tumbler. I know you have seen the cold cups decorated all over social media in so many different ways, so why not Super Mario Bros? The Nintendo Switch is my daily accessory so having a Starbucks tumbler decorated with my favorite characters was an easy decision. Though stay tuned for an Animal Cross one (Because I’m obsessed with Molly and Marina).
Super Mario Bros Inspired Starbucks Tumbler
Here is what you’ll need to create your own Super Mario cold cup:
- Starbucks Cold Cup Tumbler
- Cricut or Silhouette Cutting machines
- Different color permanent vinyl
- Transfer tape
- Free SVG file (Download here)
It is totally up to you if you want to do the entire design in one color. I used multiple colors on the cup to represent the characters. The file can be opened on Silhouette or Cricut machines. You can use full sheets of vinyl to keep everything together or just arrange everything to minimize vinyl usage. I chose to minimize vinyl usage so I will be placing each piece one by one. The only thing I kept together is the black.
Grab transfer tape to place on the cup and a scraper to burnish it to the cup. You need to be careful with the smaller pieces because they can get lost. I tried to make some of the outlines thicker to make it easier to weed. I carefully placed each image onto the cup using the transfer tape. I re-used the transfer tape for more than one piece. Arrange each of the images to your liking.
Once all the images are placed, you are done! Ready to enjoy your new Starbucks cold cup. By the way, I added my name to the cup but the SVG I am sharing does not have my name. You can arrange the images to add your name if you’d like. You can find the Starbucks cold cups in any location. But you can also just use a plain reusable cup you can find at your local Walmart or Target.
To wash the cups just use warm soapy water, do not place it in the dishwasher. The vinyl I used is permanent. I’ve washed and re-washed the cups multiple times without it lifting or peeling. Would love to see your cups if you decide to make it!

Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury
Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury offers two action-packed journeys, including the new Bowser’s Fury adventure, which features a land full of kittens and a catastrophic new foe – Fury Bowser. In Bowser’s Fury, you’ll freely frolic through Lake Lapcat, an explorable world with a variety of islands … as well as take control of the fur-ocious Giga Cat Mario, a colossal new transformation for the hero. Mario will need all the help he can get – this time Bowser’s bigger, badder and madder than ever before! Luckily, Bowser Jr., equipped with a handy paintbrush, is ready to add a splash of color and camaraderie to Mario’s efforts.
Because Bowser and Bowser Jr. have large roles to play in Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury, their amiibo figures, which will be available again for purchase at select retailers, have special activations in Bowser’s Fury. The Bowser Jr. amiibo triggers a powerful shockwave, while the Bowser amiibo triggers the treacherous Fury Bowser. Light a fire under Bowser’s tail (or Mario’s!) with these amiibo triggered tricks.
New amiibo figures for Cat Mario and Cat Peach, which offer in-game enhancements for Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury, will also be available at select retailers. The Cat Mario amiibo grants players the ability to transform into an invincible White Cat form, another debut for the series! The Cat Peach amiibo causes helpful power-up items to appear randomly.
Plus, stay tuned as I’ll be sharing so many more awesome games coming this Spring and Summer!
