It’s funny…I didn’t become “addicted” to coffee until I became a stay at home mom. I’ve been drinking it since college, but I never had a solid enough morning routine that included a cup of coffee to really become reliant on it. But now that I’m home with my kiddos every day…give me ALL the coffee. ;-) Of course, as a crafter, it goes without saying that I need a cute/witty/personalized/handmade mug to drink out of. Mugs are pretty much a crafting staple, aren’t they? Well, I’m slightly embarrassed to say that up until recently not only was I drinking my coffee out of generic plain white coffee mugs, I had never even made a coffee mug. GASP. What kind of crafter am I, anyway? So I whipped up this beauty of a crafter’s coffee mug – an “I just want to drink coffee and make pretty things” mug. What an upgrade, huh?
It was really pretty simple to whip this up! I picked up a plain white mug at Walmart, and just used black vinyl (outdoor, which is more permanent and will hold up better to washing) from Expressions Vinyl for the design.
After I finished my design, I cut the vinyl with my Silhouette and used transfer tape to transfer the vinyl onto the mug. Voila! Now I have a cute crafter’s coffee mug! I’ve added this design to my Silhouette Cut File Library, so if you want to make an upgraded mug to hold your upgraded Seattle’s Best coffee, sign up below to get this cut file (and dozens more) for free!
