      Thanks Morgan! That's exactly what I did. Once I got the hang of it, it wasn't too bad.

        Monica your cups are SO cute! FI had a cow when I told him I wanted to do them for everyone - so I think I'll just do them for the bridal party.

        Your cups came out so cute! I love the little sayings on them!

          Thanks!! Oh yea, FI gives me a hard time about anything I want to buy for the OOT bags LOL. He is a penny pincher and I like to give, give, give = ) I just meet him in the middle and try to DIY for anything that I can. You will have fun making them. The first cup I did came out pretty bad because the rub-ons take some getting used to.

            Those cups look great. They look like you had them custom made. Thanks for sharing the instructions!

              Morgan... Firstly, I want to tell you that I just love your cups! I think they look great & you've encouraged me to get my arse in gear and give them a go for my bridal party.

              WHERE did you get those brightly coloured floral rub-ons?!! I've hunted high and low (even went to the AC Moore website you mentioned) and can't find them anywhere!

              Also, the "paintpen" you made mention of... did you purchase that at AC Moore also? I saw some listed and wanted to be sure these would work!

                These are too cute, and I'm stealing your idea! :)

                I went to Dollar General this weekend and found cute travel mugs with a handle and lid in bright green and turquoise for $1.50 each. I plan on painting names on them, and I love the idea of the rub-ons. Would those be available at a craft store like Hobby Lobby? Are they with scrapbooking supplies or somewhere else that I wouldn't think to look?

                Great idea!

                  It was all from AC Moore. I would think they would be a hobby lobby. I also saw them at michaels. They are called Rub-ons. They were not with the scrapbooking stuff. They were with stenciles for painting decorations on walls & wood stuff. Ask an employee & they can show you where they are. There were a lot to pick from.

                  The paint pen was in another spot too. I think it was with some wood stuff. There were a bunch of those too & I know hobby lobby used to carry (probably still do). I bought them from HL in high school for crafts.

                      I bought my cups (walmart 4 for $1 all sorts of bright colors) now it is on to the decorating part. Thanks to Morgan I think/hope I can do this myself.
