Sorry pic is so big... can't seem to resize it...also can't get siggy any bigger GRRRRRRRRR
I saw those last week. They are the exact same cups, just in different colors. They look cute!

Okay Morgan...I'm jumping on your DIY cup bandwagon. My FI said I have already done too much - but I don't care! I want cups!

 

Now...are there any special kinds of rub ons? I have three coupons for Michaels for 40% off and I am determined to make these cups!

 

What kind of pen is it? Just a permanent marker? Won't it scratch off of the plastic?

I got rubons at ACMoore. They have them at Michael's too. The pen is a paint pen. It was in an aisle with wood stuff. It all stays on even in the dishwasher.

Post them when you are done!

I took Morgan's advice and went to Target. I got the cups for $.40 a piece. I went to Hobby Lobby to get the paint pen and decal rub ons. Which the rub ons take a while so I spent a good 3 hours to make 15 cups.

 

I apologize for the crappy pics. My digital is broken right now and in the shop! Such a pain!

Mine didn't come out very uniformed = ) more like a creative mess but I enjoyed making them and I know my guests will love them. I just put the rub ons everywhere = )

 

Anyways, here are a few:

I'm loving the DIY cup idea! I wanted to get cups or mugs printed, but the cost was outrageous or I would have to get waaaaay too many. I just added something else to my list!

For any Canadian girls wanting to do something like this... I found some cute plastic cups at Dollarama today. They come 4 in a pack for $1! At my store they had pink, orange, green & aqua. They were decent quality too, not overly thin/cheap feeling!

The sayings are rub-ons. I didn't make them though. If you go to the scrapbooking section of any craft store they have packages of decal rub-ons. Good luck and show us your finished project! = )

Monica, your cups turned out so cute. The rub-ons do take a while. I just plop in front of the TV & do them so it doesn't feel like it takes forever.
