Step 1:

Hand letter a name/word with the iPad Pro and Apple Pencil.

Step 2:

Assemble your Cricut mat (blue) and cut a piece of Cricut vinyl to the desired size.

Step 3:

Place vinyl on to the sticky Cricut cutting mat.

Step 4:

Start cutting with the Cricut maker and once complete remove the surrounding vinyl and pick out the extra vinyl as seen in the letter ‘h’.

Step 5:

Place Cricut transfer paper on-top of the vinyl.

Step 6

Peel the transfer paper and ensure the vinyl is stuck onto the transfer paper.

Step 7:

Position the name onto the mug and flatten with your hands or the Cricut scraper.

Carefully peel the Cricut transfer paper away from the vinyl.

Step 8:

You now have a personalised mug! Please note the vinyl is not dishwasher or microwave safe. Use a soft towel and gently wipe the outside.
