Personalized Drink Cups with a Friend
Hello friends. Today I am going to share some fun, personalized drink mugs/cups that my friend Megan made for her female family members. The women in Megan's family get together before Christmas for a girls only day of lunch and celebration. Megan and her grandmother, mother, aunt, and cousins gathered last Sunday for their girl's day. Megan contacted me last month and asked if I would help her personalize a few gifts for the ladies.
Megan purchased double-walled, shatter proof drink "jars" with colored lids. She had a plan before meeting with to plan. She knew she wanted her mom's and grandmother's cups to have a Christmas theme, her cousins to have fun designs with fun colors, and for her own and her aunt's mugs to have a University of South Carolina theme. I am going to be honest here... The Michigan State Spartan in me had trouble with those Gamecock mugs!! I kept thinking how much better they would look with Sparty on them!
It was fun watching Megan learn to manipulate the vinyl - - which became much easier once I introduced her to transfer tape!!
Megan liked the fun font I used for Maddie's mug so well that she asked if I could use the same font for her first initial too. This font would be no fun to transfer without the transfer tape.
Oh the gamecocks - shudder! I created a while frame for the bird so that he stood out a bit.
We added two layer USC initials to the side of Megan and Cindy's mugs....
And to their lids.
I think Megan had fun making the mugs. She reported back that the mugs were a big hit at her girl's get together. I am so happy that the other family members liked their mugs. I thought Megan did a wonderful job of planning what she wanted, selecting colors, and applying the vinyl!
Thanks for stopping by today. I will be back tomorrow with another Christmas themed post!!
