Decorating Tips

Hi friends!  I am SUPER excited about today's project because it's really easy, super cute and is a perfect and affordable Valentine's Day gift option.  Yeah, I know, Valentine's Day is just around the corner.  I can't believe it either.  So, let's get right to how you can make these DIY his and hers mugs yourself!

DIY His and Hers Mugs Tutorial

Materials needed for DIY His and Hers Mugs:

How to Make DIY His and Hers Mugs:

1) Create your Silhouette cut file.  If you want your mugs to look exactly like mine, you can download my Silhouette Studio cut file here.  Just bear in mind that if your mugs are larger than mine, you may want to scale then entire design accordingly.  Also, remember to change the vinyl if you want your hearts to be a different color from your text!  Once the hearts are cut, you can reposition the text to the top of the screen so you don't waste vinyl :)

This is what my cut file looks like.

2) Weed your design and use transfer paper to add the text to the mugs first.  Then repeat this process for the hearts.

That's it!  How easy is that?!  And don't worry–if you don't have a cutting machine you could totally do this with Sharpie paint pens.  You can follow the directions for that method here {you have to use a specific kind of Sharpie and bake them in the oven when you are done}.

Check out how cute these mugs are.  I'm the designated talker in my house and my husband is the designated listener {God bless him}, but it may be different in your house :)
