Need a Guy's Gift? Etched Monogram Mugs ... DIY

Monday, June 11

I seem to be the "Little Shop Around the Corner"
for my friends that need last minute gifts.

***btw...not complaining here***

My friend's son was getting married last Saturday and she realized
he hadn't got his groomsmen anything.

The conversation usually starts like this,
"Could you do me a favor ...."

So wham-bam-thank-you-ma'am ... we decided on 
Etched Monogram Mugs.

Having done these before  HERE with Super Hero Logos ... I knew they'd be great!


Here's a  pre-project tip ... get those nasty price tags off using a hair dryer.



First step ... cut out vinyl monograms on the ole Silhouette.

My new Cameo's been getting a good workout these days.  Learning the ropes.
This is the most involved part of the whole process.  The more I do ... the easier it gets.

I used regular shelf lining vinyl to cut the monograms ... stuck on the transfer paper ... and
positioned it carefully on the mug.

***Scissors work too ... just keep the letters simple!***



Here's the easy part.   Really slather the etching cream on.
Just be careful not to let it run or drip onto the bottom of the mugs.

I leave my etching cream on a good  30 minutes ... after that ... hold it under a warm
 faucet spray to  wash off all the cream ...  then  remove your stencil.




I did 10 mugs in all ... and to be honest ... the whole project took
about 2 hours ... tops.
We put some bright ribbon around the handle ... dumped those puppies
in a decorative bag ... and  bazinga ...

Perfect Monogramed Bridesgroom Mugs.
