This here is one of my favorite projects because as you can see we not only used a coffee mug but we actually turned it into a succulent holder, so after we applied the vinyl we added sand and then put faux succulents right into the coffee mug and added a really fun bottle saying. I absolutely love this project I think it’s fantastic to share how you could take a coffee mug say from the thrift store upcycle it into a really fun succulent holder.

  1. For the flip flops and the XOXO round zipper bag you used HTV.
    1. Did you use the easy press to apply?
    2. Whatbsetting did you use so the plastic/foam didn’t melt?

    1. Yes, we used the EasyPress to apply the Iron-On to the projects! We heated ours to 315 for both projects but you’re welcome to check the Cricut EasyPress Interactive Quick Reference Guide on the Cricut site for exact temps!

  2. Received my Cricut for Xmas 2018. While I was trying my first project, I accidentally dropped my mat on my rug. After I picked it off my rug, of course it had to land face down. My mat looked awful. I sat down and started plucking off the rug fibers off mat, it was taking too long & very tedious. I started to think, “what can I do to make this mat look just as good as when I removed it from its wrapper”? I went into my closet and used my clothing lint roller. I started carefully on one corner working across mat. Within a few minutes my 12×12″ mat; was lint free. It looks like new again! Yes, it is still very sticky the lint roller did not damage the mat. I was able to start my next project within a few minutes. I have seen posts of spraying mat with cleaning solutions, lightly rubbing off residue from mat, rinsing in water and leaving to air dry. I prefer my way, much faster, very effective and mat is ready to use quickly. Just thought I would share this with all Cricut People.

    1. Can what be used on ceramic mugs? Vinyl? If so, yes! It’s not exactly waterproof, but you can gently wash it by hand and it will be fine.
