    Okay, Morgan! How much to "do me" a few cups?! Say, somewhere between 6 & 8?!! Seriously, I love your effort!

      I PMed you. Not sure if you are kidding, but I do have extra blue cups & could make you some. I am going to finish mine this weekend.

                Okay - so I go to walmart and buy some 4 for 97cent hot pink cups. I go over to the aisle where the crafts are and buy an Elmers brand paint pen. It says it works on plastic so I go for it. I already got my rub ons at Michaels with cute beach sayings.

                I go home with my stuff all ready to be your little DIY protogee.

                After I sit down to do the cups, the paint writes and I am totally pumped ! I'm thinking, the girls are going to love these!

                Then, I pick up the cups that I've written on and I noticed that the paint scratches off and rubs off very easy.

                I am SO bummed! Do you have a pic of the pen you used or the exact brand?

                I think the rub ons did okay - but the paint was a zero!

                  I wonder if the cup was different. Is it extra smooth or shiny? I'll check my pen brand when I get home. I think it was Zigg or something like that.

                    I used a paint pen made by tree house studio. I bought it at Hobby Lobby I believe in the wood section. HTH!
