Do you ever wake up in the morning and crave that cup of coffee, tea, latte or maybe a nice cup of hot cocoa? Well since the Summer mornings have been so cold lately and the evenings even colder my husband and I love to lounge around the house and drink our specialty drinks together. What better way to enjoy our drinks than with custom made “Good Morning Beautiful” and “Good Morning Handsome” Coffee mugs? I turned these Dollar Tree mugs into a beautiful keepsake that we can use for years and years plus they look great displayed in our kitchen.
Project: DIY Dollar Tree Quote Mugs using Silhouette Cameo
Expert Level: Beginner
Project Time: 20 minutes
- Mugs (I purchased mine for $1.00 each at the Dollar Tree)
- Vinyl (Any Color)
- Silhouette Cameo Machine
- Clear Transfer Tape
Open up your Silhouette Software and pick your desired fonts. I used font Pacifico for Good Morning on both Mugs in size 50 and I used font Fontdinerdotcom Luvable for Beautiful and Handsome in size 50.
Once you are happy with the set up of your text send the text to cut function. I chose to only cut Good Morning twice on black vinyl and chose to not cut the others since those would be different colors. It took me 3 cuts through the machine using black vinyl, green vinyl and pink vinyl to get the desired look on my mugs.
Place the vinyl on your cutting mat and feed through the machine using a 2 cut blade.
After cut is complete remove from cutter and weed out your excess vinyl.
Apply clear transfer paper and apply to mug in desired location.
That’s it, nothing else is needed.
Once your vinyl is firmly pressed on it can be washed in the sink or even the dishwasher if you wish.
