As part of my gift to Justine for her birthday, I decided I really wanted to make these mugs I found on Pintrest!
Aren't these adorable? They're long distance BFF mugs, so you can enjoy your warm morning beverage (I say that because I don't like coffee, but tea is fine with me). I thought they were incredibly cute, and since the two of us drink coffee and tea at work this would be a great thing to take to work.
You can find the original post here.
These are really easy to make. I obviously did a few thinks differently than the original directions called for.
1. I'm not a great drawer...so I printed out a map of the Northwest, and cut out the shapes of Montana and Oregon. I then traced those images onto cardboard and cut out a stencil. I taped those stencils onto the mugs and traced them onto the mug.
2. DON'T USE A SHARPIE. The last project like this I did with a sharpie, the image had washed off after 2 runs through the dishwasher. Do yourself a favor and buy yourself a Porcelain 150 pen in the colors you want. You have to let it dry overnight, but once it's baked it's on there permanently.
3. I also wrote our names on the handle instead of on the back of on the inside. I just thought it looked better. Plus, I didn't want to smudge the front with my clumsy left hand :)
That's it! Pretty easy right?
