I know that you think tomorrow is Friday but you’re wrong.
Well, technically, I guess you’re right but it’s more important than that. Tomorrow is the start of the Winter Olympics.
He loves the Olympics! Winter or Summer Games — he has no preference. He just loves the Olympics. Period.
Over the years, we’ve watched your regular events like Ice Skating and Hockey but we’ve also watched Luge and Curling. Summer, with it’s larger variety, is even crazier!
This year, with my goal to use my craft supplies more regularly, I decided he needed an Olympic inspired mug.
Granted, I’ll be the first to tell you that we definitely do not need more coffee mugs but it was better than making him a t-shirt which he needs even less than a coffee mug!
Thankfully, Expressions Vinyl is running a sale for the month of February!
I chose a very simple design from the Cricut Design Space and just altered it a wee bit.
Thankfully, the Cricut Design Space is super user friendly! They have some amazing designs, all of which can be customized. Rock on! Right?
I selected the Victor Party Favors and deleted all but the torch.
This design was perfect for him since he had the privilege to see past torches and the current one while he toured the first modern Olympic Stadium in Greece
Once the design was cut, I weeded the image. P.S. If your new to this, that means that you take away all the stuff that’s trash. Personally, I wish someone would have actually told me that.
Finally, I used some Transfer paper to move the image to my coffee cup. I lined that baby up and used my scraper to press it on down.
Pulled off the Transfer paper and ba-bam! Olympic Torch Coffee Mug.
