Okay I “scraplifted” this from another site, the The Frugal Crafter, and I have to say she has some excellent stuff over there! :) Yup I’m learning the lingo as I carry on with my Cricut. LOL I actually just grabbed the freely available .svg file and then sized it, cut it, and decorated it to my liking.
When I get to the grocery store I’ll pick up some cinnamon sticks to stick in with the apple cider. I’m thinking of getting some hot chocolate pouches and maybe a candy cane too.
I’ve uploaded the scut file (works with Sure Cuts A Lot Version 2 or SCAL for short) here. Two mugs will be cut on one sheet of 12x12 paper.
This design cuts as one piece but I found it not quite sturdy enough and I also didn’t like the back of the Christmas tree paper, so I “flipped” the design and cut another set to paste together. If you only want to make one mug then flip the bottom one on the scut file before cutting, or delete it if you want to use different paper. I then used the Cuttlebug to emboss the back and handle. Fold the front over and glue. I tied a ribbon onto the handle and I also glued ribbons on other ones I made.
I like this design for not only Christmas, but “Tea for Two” with two teabags inside, or if someone has a cold/flu a pouch of Neo Citron with “Get Well Soon” or a “Cup a Soup” pouch… the ideas are endless! :)
