Supplies needed to make I Love You Mugs
How to make I Love You Mugs
Step 1: Choose your design. I found these FAB love day sayings drawn by the super talented Jodie York in the Silhouette Design Store, and then I used my Silhouette Portrait to cut it out. Next, rub the design against your vinyl transfer paper.
Step 2: Peel your saying back so it sticks to the vinyl transfer paper, position it on the mug and then rub the design onto the mug, using pressure so it will stick.
Step 3: Peel back the vinyl transfer paper, pressing down any parts of the vinyl that may have lifted.
Step 4: Time to Mod Podge! For this step, it is super important to make sure that you are using Dishwasher Safe Mod Podge. This will help to protect and seal your design and make it last much longer! Apply a thin layer over the saying, allowing it to dry per package directions.
That’s it, your I Love You Mugs are finished! Now all you have to do is fill them up with something yummy and snuggle up with your Valentine!
Happy mug making!
