There is nothing quite as special as a mother.

Mothers are amazing in their own right as they give everything to everyone and expect nothing in return. There is a beautiful light that surrounds them when they realize their divine role and calling.

I came across a quote recently that said,

“MOM – a title just above Queen.”
– Unknown

As a mother, I definitely don’t feel like a queen. We often think of the royal grandeur of beautiful gowns, well-set hair, having servants at our beck-and-call. But, this isn’t the only thing about being a queen.

A queen is beloved, almost revered by her people. A mother is beloved and respected by her children throughout time as she purposefully and righteously reigns in her home.

Today, I’m going to show you how you can make this same mug to hold your favorite drink. This way, you can remind yourself (or your favorite mother in your life) of the irreplaceable role to so many in life.

Mom & Queen – An Easy Vinyl Cricut Project

Supplies Needed:

Don’t forget to turn on and connect your Cricut machine with Design Space.

Instructions:

The first thing you’ll want to do is connect your Cricut machine with your laptop and open up Design Space.

The words, “MOM” and “Queen” will need to be the same font. I used an elegant font called, Sophia (I’ll share with you at the bottom of this post how you can use my file to make this project!)

The words, “a title just above” is the second type of font. I kept the font for these words simpler so they’re easier to read.

Once you have your fonts and words assigned (with the sizes you like), click the “Make It” button in Design Space and watch your machine work.

After cutting your vinyl pieces, carefully remove each letter and add them to your mug. You can easily peel off your vinyl and reposition your letters as needed.

    My boys and I made some vinyl decorated bowls yesterday and some of the vinyl is peeling off; any suggestions for getting it to stick really well? I’m so afraid when I go to wash the bowls everything is going to fall right off. I did use the Cricut brand of vinyl but am starting to wonder if other brands might be stickier?? Any help you have would be greatly appreciated; I just got my Cricut Maker for Christmas and I’m still learning all the ins and outs of it.

    1. Okay, Joanne. I finally found your answer after a bit of trial, error, and a lot of research. The first thing I recommend doing is wiping the outside of your bowls, mugs, etc. with rubbing alcohol (using a cotton ball is perfect) and allowing this to air dry. Once your bowl is dry, you’ll be able to apply the vinyl (with or without transference paper. I love transference paper because it makes life a little easier, but whatever works for you and makes your life simple is what you want). After your vinyl is placed on your bowl, you’ll want to let the vinyl cure for at least 48 hours so it really sticks. If you want to REALLY make sure the vinyl isn’t going anywhere, you can run an embossing heat gun back and forth (hovering over your vinyl and then press down really hard with your finger to make sure it adheres really well.) Just be careful, not to touch it when it’s too hot! As a reminder, anything with vinyl should be hand washed (no dishwashers). As for the type of vinyl you’re using, it really doesn’t matter. I use off brand to save on costs and keep my husband happy (heaven knows some crafting costs would need me to get a third, fourth, or fifth job to be able to afford some of the supplies people sell). Haha. I hope this helps, Joanne. Have a happy day!

        Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

  2. This is so cool and I have a Cricut! Can it be washed though?

    1. I’m so glad you like the mug, Rhaina! As with any vinyl mug, I would handwash and not place in the dishwasher. This will preserve the vinyl for many uses to come. Thanks for stopping by!
