Apologies for being MIA for the past week. It's been super-busy here and still is! I'm grateful to have found a spare moment to share a project with you that I should probably have shared with you a while back. Still, better late than never, right? *wink*
Think back to the holidays. Seems like a long way back now, but over the holidays I got a little bit busy with my Cricut Mini and some cool Cricut vinyl to whip up these mugs for my deer friends (Oh c'mon, humour me and embrace the pun!) as well as myself to inject a little bit of the crisp winter indoors whilst we sip on a hot beverage or store something inside of them. :)
This project is soooooo easy. I simply loaded up the shapes in the Cricut Craft Room software, made them the right size, loaded my Cricut Mini with some silver vinyl, clicked 'cut', and peeled cut the deer shapes and applied them to the mug. Easy peasy!
- These mugs require gentle cleaning by hand. No dishwashers!
- A mug is not just for drinking from. I like to use my deer mug to hold my pens and pencils in!
- When giving these away as a gift, you can fill the mug with a warming sachet of hot chocolate (complete with compulsory marshmallows of course!) *wink*
For a finishing touch, I used the positive hearts of the folk-art deer to decorate the mug handle:
That's all from me today. A cuppa is calling me...!
FYI: The mugs were purchased from my local supermarket at a bargin 49p each! :)
