It’s no secret I’m a coffee lover. So when it’s time to think about gift giving; my favorite gift is a custom mug for coffee or tea. With my Cricut machine and Cricut Access , I usually can whip up something in under 15 minutes. Talk about an easy and budget friendly gift idea!
Let’s get started!
DIY Teacher Mug | Gift Idea with Cricut
What you will need:
- Cricut Explore Air 2™ or Cricut Maker
- Cutting Mat
- Cricut Vinyl
- Cricut Transfer Tape
- Cricut Tools
- White Mug
- Teacher Design in Cricut Design Space
If you are new to Cricut, be sure to check out my video for cutting vinyl with your Cricut. It’s great for beginner crafters!
Open my design in Cricut Design Space and click the Make It button. The design will display on the virtual mat, then click Continue.
Move the dial to Vinyl. Since this is a two part design, you will need to load a scrap of green vinyl on the mat for the stem first then repeat the process with the red vinyl for the apple.
Once the mat is loaded you can click the GO button in Design Space and the info will be sent to the Cricut. Click the Cricut Logo button on the machine to start cutting.
Once the design is cut, unload the mat. Using your Cricut Tools; weed the vinyl to expose the design.
Cut a piece of Transfer Tape close to the same size of the design and remove the paper backing. Apply the transfer tape on top of your design.
Rub the Transfer Tape firmly on top of the vinyl, using the burnish tool. And slowly pull back the Transfer Tape. The design will then come off the paper backing for easy application.
Line up your design to the space on your mug and apply the vinyl. Rub the Transfer Tape firmly and slowly remove the Transfer Tape. Repeat the process with the stem. This will leave a nice and clean design on your mug!
And that’s it, a sweet Teacher Mug, the perfect Teacher’s gift for the end of the school year! It’s also great for Back to School. You can fill it with candy and attach a card, or just deliver it as is.
