I have been dying to share the Christmas Gifts I made for my local HOSTESS CLUB & HSS TEAM MEMBERS that were able to attend the Annual Holiday Party this year. I made these mugs almost 2 months ago, and I can’t tell you how HARD it has been for me not to share sneak peeks or totally spill the beans… SUPER HARD!!
I made sweet little bows to finish off each mug, and these babies are LARGE… they are like Starbucks grande! The ribbon is of course from Stampin’ Up! and I just have to say that I LOVE the wide stuff… the wider, the better!
Creating these mugs is actually super simple… I used contact paper with my TYPESET ALPHABET DIE, which is on clearance right now, and cut out a few letters. I stuck them to the fronts of the mug and then I used these awesome SHARPIE MARKERS I found on Amazon made just for this! This fun mug is for one of my TEAM MEMBERS, Genny Valdez.
I used the tip of the marker to dab little dots all around the letter sticker, I placed them super close together up against the letter and spread them out as I moved further away from the letter. When I was done, I peeled the letter off the mug and I was left with this…
Once I completed the mug, I let it stand and dry for 24 hours. Then I baked them in the oven for the designated time and temp and just to be safe, I ran them through the dishwasher once complete just to be sure that all my hard work wasn’t going to be washed away, LOL!! I did find out that the vivid original colors that the markers produce do change once the mugs are baked. So the Red looked more pink, and the pink went from a melon color to pastel and the deep blue went to more of a teal and so on… but they were still super adorbs!
Now, I bet you are wondering what I did for my long distance HOSTESS CLUB & HSS TEAM MEMBERS… well you will have to check in tomorrow to see!! I am super excited to share that with you too!! I will give you a little teaser about my HOSTESS CLUBS… there are some changes getting ready to happen, and they are AWESOME!!!
