  • White Mug
  • Black Premium Outdoor Vinyl
  • Blue Premium Outdoor Vinyl
  • Cricut Maker
  • Weeding Tool Set
  • Cricut Transfer Tape
  • “One Smart Cookie” Cut File

  1. With your Cricut maker cut out your file in the different colors you’d like. We used black and blue. It’s important to make sure you use Premium Outdoor Vinyl when you’re applying it to something like a mug that you’ll use often and handwash, to make sure you have the most durable vinyl.
  2. Once your design is cut add transfer tape to each of them and add the designs separately and carefully to your mug, making sure the vinyl has well adhered to the surface.
  3. Once you’re done you’ve got a great homemade graduation gift. You could even take the DIY a step further and full the mug with gift cards or the recipients’ favorite candy, just get creative!

I told you this project was a keeper! I thought it was so cute. I was so excited to give them to my graduating friends. I hope you enjoyed learning how to make this mug. I hope you get creative and are able to make them yourself. It’s a lot easier than you think.
