Vinyl in the Big Shot - Personalized Cups

 This is one of the projects we'll be making at a So You Want To Be a Big Shot classes. This Big Shot class is all about using this phenomenal machine, the Sandwiches, the Dies, the Embossing, with Cardstock, with Fabric, with Vinyl, with several materials. I have three cups to show you - a cute, whimsical one with butterflies die cut from Chocolate Chip Decor Elements, a more conservative monogram cup with Chocolate Chip Decor Elements, and a fun, Valentine's cup with Chalkboard Vinyl.
I die cut a few hearts from the Chalkboard Decor Elements sheets using the Hearts Framelits die from the new Occasions Mini Catalog. Before applying them to the mug, I first cleaned it with rubbing alcohol to remove any oils, dirt, etc. Then I transferred the die cuts to the Decor Elements Transfer Sheets that come with the vinyl, peeled the backing and applied the die cuts to the mug. Then my daughter promptly wrote on them! She had to check out the Chalkboard Element! Here are a couple of views of the hearts, the chalkboard vinyl and her notes.

For the next two mugs, I followed the same process as above, only using the Chocolate Chip Decor Elements Sheets. I die cut the butterflies using the Beautiful Wings Embosslits and the monogram is from the Simple Serif Bigz dies. For all of these mugs, you'll want to hand wash, the vinyl won't last if you put them in the dish washer.

The class is great! Everyone who owns a Big Shot should take this to learn, or review, its many advantages.
