personalized ceramic mug with initial

Make everyone in your family a personalized mug. That way you’ll know who’s not washing their dishes!
Step 1
Start a new project in Cricut® Design Space™.
Step 2

Click on the 'Text' icon in the left panel and type an initial; then, choose a font and size it to fit on the front of your mug. 

TIP: Repeat Step 2 for as many mugs as you'd like to make.

Step 3
Click ‘Make It’ in the upper right corner and then ‘Continue’ in the lower right corner.
Step 4
Place your vinyl, grid-side down, onto your cutting mat and load it into your Cricut® machine. Select ‘Vinyl’ for the material and cut out your initial(s). Once the machine is done cutting, gently peel vinyl from the mat.
Step 5
Cut your design away from the vinyl sheet with scissors, and then use your weeder tool to separate the negative space from the surrounding area (and within your initial(s).
Step 6
Cut a piece of transfer tape large enough to fit over an initial and peel off the backer paper. Place the tape, sticky-side down, over the vinyl initial and burnish. Gently peel back the transfer tape and the initial should be transferred to the tape.
Step 7
Place the transfer tape with your initial on the front of your mug and burnish.
Step 8
Gently peel back the transfer tape, and the initial should be transfered to the front of your mug.
