Make these cups for a gift for a tween or teen in your life! These mugs paired with a favorite drink or coffee house gift card make a perfect gift! Plus, these take less than 10 minutes to make (yes, it’s that easy). I love getting the base of my DIY projects from OrientalTrading.com. These mugs come in a pack of 6 and these are great because you can change out the inside with photos, papers and fabric!
Along with the mugs from Oriental Trading, I used my Cricut for the outside of the cup. If you don’t have a Cricut, you can do this DIY without one with just the inside. However, if you don’t have one I highly recommend you consider one. The possibilities are endless and it’s truly one of my favorite tools to craft with!
- These mugs from Oriental Trading
- Patterned Paper (the cactus and pineapple are from Joanns)
- Permanent vinyl (I use this Oracal 651 from ExpressionsVinyl.com) and Cricut machine
- Trace the inner paper on the back of the scrapbook paper and cut it out.
- Place the paper inside the cup.
- Cut out your shape on the Cricut. I used the cactus above!
- Once cut, adhere it to your cup and you are done!
For cursive style font on the Cricut:
- This is a little tricky so I am going to try to explain this the best way I can!
- When you use a cursive style font in your project, you’ll notice that when you start typing the font is spaced out and not attached in the Cricut software.
- You’ll need to change your “letter-spacing” to be closer together (go down).
- Then once it’ looks like cursive, you should then “weld” so it cuts the word as one and not separately by letter.
