Chalk Board Message Mug by Cathy A.


Wouldn't it be great to leave little messages when you give someone a coffee or tea?  Well now you can!  Cathy A here today to share a fun vinyl and chalkboard project with you.

Take a plain white mug, preferably with straight rather than tapering sides.  This makes it easier to add the vinyl. Then die cut a piece of black vinyl using Penny Black's A Pocket Full die to create a very fun edge.

Carefully add the vinyl to the mug making sure that there are no air bubbles as you go around. Your message mug is then ready to use.

Take the White Fine Tip chalk marker and shake before use, pump the nib several times when first use to get the chalk down to the nib and then write or doodle what ever message you want!

You can change the message each day by simply taking a damp cloth and wiping off the current message.  What a great way to personalize the start of each day!  And what a great gift idea!
