Easy DIY Coffee Mug with Your Cricut Machine and Vinyl | Beginner Friendly Gift Idea!
hi guys welcome back to the crafts Channel today we are gonna do something super super
easywe are going to do a DIY
coffeemug so all you're gonna need is a
coffeemug um I got this at the dollar store so super affordable it's a hue I love a big
coffeemug that is for sure I love a big
coffeemug so they have a great selection at the dollar store also you will need some
vinylso this is just oracles they cannot see that at all sorry I thought you wouldn't be able to see it better but there's a little bit there anyways this is six-five one oracle
vinylso this is permanent so you're gonna want it some kind of permanent
vinylit doesn't have to be Oracle I know
Cricutdoes have a permanent
vinylalso so any kind of permanent
vinylyou want to use
coffeemug and also some transfer tape I'm gonna be using this um masking transfer tape that auntie Kate sent me it's the best transfer tape it's literally just like a roll so you don't have to worry about a carrier sheet or anything like that so it's awesome and that's pretty much it so let's get started and actually there is a special announcement in the video so if you find it or if you pick up on it leave me a comment and let me know what you think okay let's get into the video alright so we are going to be making this
coffeecup and we are going to use this this is just a scrap of gold permanent so this is six-five one permanent
vinylso this is what you're gonna want to...
coffeemugs um wine glasses anything that you want to be permanent obviously I usually don't seal my
coffeemugs or wine glasses just because usually they're just for me or their
gifts and if you're using permanent
vinyland you take care of them and you let the
vinylreally cure to the bug or the glass you should be okay without sealing it so we are just gonna put this on our mat so I'm using my blue mat and you don't need to use this 12 by 24 mat I'm only using it because my mats are very dirty right now and this one is the one that has the most grip to it right now which is really not a whole lot honestly so I'm just scraping this down onto my mat making sure that sticks up there and you can use any color
vinylyou want I'm using this gold just because I like the gold I think I look pretty on here but you may want to make sure that it's permanent and I know cricket has a as a permanent
vinylI like Oracle personally but you can use whatever you want alright so once our cricket light here turns blue or our power light rather we will change our settings on our
machineand sorry I don't have a screenshot of this but basically I'm just gonna be using the regular old
vinylsetting um that's all you need for this
vinylso now that our light is flashing here we can load our mats and I have to pull my
machineout just because it doesn't have room and so now once this starts flashing we can cut all right so now I can...
unload our mats take this off and so now we are just gonna weed out the stuff that we don't need and because this design is a little small sometimes Mike I feel like my Coke
machineit just is like too aggressive with it and so it kind of cuts it a little bit funky but I think this will be okay so let's queue this down so you can see so what I like to do is I like to just try and pull up so we're gonna be weeding out this negative space that we don't need so we're just left with the letter so I just peeled up a corner and now I'm just going to gently remove the XS see what I mean by gently what is happening with my G here ladies are all crazy but but that is totally fixable oh my G is on my finger alright so I'm just gonna leave it there for now and and so the font that I used for this was Sweet Pea and I think this was from UM font bundles I'm gonna guess most of my fonts if they're not in
Cricutare from font bundles all right so we have we got all of our letters out of here so we can scoot that aside and the bottom part of the question mark came off so I'm just gonna put that bag all right put the G where it belongs not on my nail and I will say so a font like this that is very delicate and tiny is not going to likely um you know stand the test of time with a mug like this you know if I were making this for somebody else or selling it or something I'd pick a way more like robust font that I knew what last but um this is just for...
personal use so I'm okay with it you know maybe peeling up at some point it's not that big of a deal but again I'm gonna warn you guys when you're doing
vinylwith mugs or wine glasses the chunkier the design the bigger the design the better it's going to stay without you know sealing it if you want to seal it by all means if you know how to do that go ahead I have not dabbled with that so I don't seal my stuff but you know if you just take care of it you know no no dishwasher no microwave no soaking just hand wash it gently all of my all of my mugs have lasted for the most part so right now I'm what I'm doing I'm just weeding out the insides of these letters all right I think that's all so now I'm gonna do this part again I'm just gonna pull up a corner and peel away this little design here is from crooked design space and how cute is it these little numbers oh my god so perfect I wasn't even gonna put a date on here and then all of the sudden I found these numbers and I was like oh these are perfect all right so if you haven't picked up on it yet I got engaged yesterday and after six years of being very patient or what I like to think is very patient um Jill proposed if you're following me on Instagram you already know that but I thought it'd be fun to come on here and do a craft also because I mean getting engaged any wedding baby shower this is the best excuse to craft so again so I'm gonna put this on...
this mug and I'm gonna put it so the writing on the outside so if I hold it with my left hand it'll say does this ring make me look engaged which it very much does he did a great job I just need to make sure I remember which side and put so I'm gonna put on this so bring this down a little bit so you can see all right and so now this is the easiest part this is why I love using
vinylnow all we have to do is just a slap this on so I'm using this roll gigantic role of transfer tape that auntie Tay sent me and this is literally the best it has no carrier sheet so you don't have to worry about peeling it it's just this giant roll that you can just grab and go it's like masking tape transfer tape basically and it's just the best the literally the best stuff that I have used and I really like Oracle transfer tape but this stuff is just it put it the
vinylpeels off like butter you can reuse it I'll use this piece you know a couple times it's awesome and you can see you can see through it still so it's even though it looks like it's not see-through it's still just opaque enough so we're gonna put our transfer tape on here we're just going to scrape it down good and then we're just going to peel off like when normally would this G is like giving me problems okay all right so we're just gonna peel this off and we're putting on this side right cuz I'm gonna hold my cup like this so we're just going to let...
see you can I bring this down anymore see even lose really see so we are just going to Center this as best as we can I think that's good all right so we're just gonna slap this on here I like to kind of like press the middle down first and then work my way out to try and avoid bubbles or anything like that I'm just gonna kind of go line by line alright so now that we have this on here I'm just gonna scrape it down real good try not to mess up the
coffeemugs wine glasses are the best and easiest
ideathey are so
easyand quick and relatively inexpensive this couple is a dollar like I said and the
vinylitself I don't know I bought it a while ago but it's relatively inexpensive also and so I'll link that below too so now that we have this on here we're just gonna slowly and carefully peel this ah I like to kind of like hold it down and like press and peel so just in case anything starts to lift all right seriously can't believe I'm engaged it is like that crazy thing so now when I hold it you can kind of see all right so now I'm gonna put just the date I think I'm gonna do mmm I'm gonna do it on the back so if for some reason I hold this with my right hand there's still something on the other side so again using the same piece of transfer tape no need to waste another whole piece press it down oh yeah we're just going to peel if anything is stubborn just kind of like press it down and...
encourage it a little bit so now we're gonna put this on the opposite side and I'm just going to put it right and again just pressing go back with my scraper alright so just gonna pull this away and how cute does that look on the back oh my gosh so freakin cute all right so I hope you guys enjoyed the video um I don't know if that was cheesy or not but I thought that would be super cute so um and I just love my new mug I can't wait to take it to work tomorrow and show it off and anyways so thank you for watching if you like this video make sure you give it a thumbs up subscribe and follow me on instagram at the crafts underscore scraps and I think that's it so as always happy crafting
