Inevitably you end up with some gift cards for the teachers. I wanted to make cute gift card holders, so of course I pick….mugs!
It was either a plain gift bag or a cup, so I decided to be different, but I wanted to still decorate them.
Ceramic mugs (black from the dollar store)
Sharpie oil pens (metallic)
Wash the mugs. When dry, wipe with alcohol/alcohol wipes to remove any residue.
Use the oil pens to draw or stencil your design. In my case the school mascot is a lion so I searched for lion drawings. There are some amazing artist out there.
Place the mugs on an oven safe tray. Put into a cool oven. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes Turn off and let the mugs cool in the oven.
Your gift cups should be ready for their gift cards.
I think I am ready to buy some expensive mugs to make for myself.
