Create a customised mug to fit your taste using Cricut joy and smart vinyl. This a great way to add life into plain cheap items and make them your own.
YOU WILL NEED:
-Cricut Smart Vinyl
-Cricut Standard grip transfer tape.
-Cricut Weeding Tool
-Cricut Scraper Tool
Load image 'RAINBOW' #MF08B8AE into a new Design Space canvas, duplicate the shape 5 times and create a line of rainbows, once in place, select all then attach this will keep your design in place for cutting. Resize the image to fit the circumference of your mug.
Next load the gold smart vinyl face up into your Cricut Joy machine. set the material setting to Smart vinyl permanent start cutting.
Once the machine has finished cutting, remove the vinyl from the machine. Carefully cut around your design so that you can use the remaining vinyl another time.
Next, take your weeding tool and carefully remove all of the excess vinyl leaving only the rainbow images on the backing sheet.
Next, take a piece of transfer tape and lay it onto of your design, then scrape both sides of the vinyl.
Leave the vinyl for a few minutes before carefully peeling back the transfer tape layer, making sure that the design is stuck to it as you pull it away from the carrier sheet.
Stick your design in place onto your mug, then give a really good scrape with the scraper tool to sure that the design is well stuck down.
Then peel back the transfer tape on itself as flat as you can, leaving your design behind on the mug.
