FREE Design of the Week - Enjoy the Ride Mug



I was so pleased to see the lovely free design (Design ID #144689in the Silhouette Design store this week and knew I had to make something with it. 

I decided that I'd decorate a mug in vinyl with the design and only had to re-jig it a little to make it work. 



These are the main changes I made:
  • Reduced the size to fit my mug (to approximately 82mm x 66mm).
  • Ungrouped the lettering so that I could re-arrange it around the bike.
  • Released the compound path on the bike to delete some of the smaller pieces and the basket work.
The advanced cut feature made for easy selection of the five different colours of vinyl for cutting. 

I was lazy and didn't use an alignment shape as I usually do, I just aligned each piece with the top and left hand edge of the cutting box. I picked up each cut colour with the transfer tape in turn until all the colours were on the tape. Then I transferred the complete vinyl decal to the mug.





Here's the original design. It will be free from the store until next Tuesday morning (August 9th 2016). 



Have I tempted you to make something with the free design? I do hope so.

  1. You have tempted me to try putting vinyl onto mugs. Something I will try in the next week or so in anticipation of making some cost effective Christmas presents.
