My Cricut Craft Room's 25 days of Christmas - Hot Chocolate Theme

Welcome to Erica's Craft Room
25 Days of Christmas,
with 25 Cricut projects a day.
Don't forget to stop by Erica's blog to see 24 more projects today....
and every day in December.

For today's project I helped my Besty, Mindy, make these mugs to give as gifts around her office. She bought the mugs from The Dollar Tree and we added everyone's initail to the mug using vinyl. We then wrapped the mugs in cellophane and added a cute tag to finish off our project.  Above is the finished project.  Keep scrolling down for more details. :)
Mindy included in the mug Hot Chocolate, Starbucks Via Instant Coffee pack, and a Candy Cane.
The letters were cut from Art Philosophy using the Decorative Font Feature button.
I can't remember the size they were cut at, but I believe it may have been 2.5. 
We used vinyl to cut the letters.

For the tag we used Winter Frolic.
Using the Tag Feature we chose button 17 on the overlay and cut it at 4" and 3.65" to layer the tag.
The sentiment can be found on the same cartridge using the Phrase Feature Button 32. 
This was cut at 2.41" along with it's layer which you get by pressing Shift.  To give the tag a finished touch I doodled some stitching with my White Gel Pen.

I love how these turned out and it is a perfect inexpensive yet personalized gift. 
 Mindy and I had so much fun creating these together. :)
