I still want to put a palm tree on the other side but haven't found a rub-on yet. The guys get the white and orange and the girls get the light pink or dark pink.
    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.
