This is a fun one — Hot Drink! My design team sister, Katrina, challenged us to include a hot beverage on our projects this week at Cut it Up. Our sponsor is Newton’s Nook, so I wanted to use one of their products, too. I chose their Festive Forest Die Set.
I wanted my project to actually include a gift of a hot beverage, so I looked on my computer for a cup file and found one called Mel’s Mug Card. The Newton’s nook die is 2.25 x 1.25, so I sized my cup accordingly. It’s always cool to be able to use different kinds of products together, in this case an svg cut on my Silhouette and a physical die cut with my eBosser.
The mug svg is just one piece. To make the patterned paper pieces, I copied/pasted mug and used the knife tool to cut it in half. I used the internal offset for each piece set at .12. For the part with the handle, I used mirror right to make the piece to line the inside of the mug. I really enjoy working with the Silhouette Design software!! 🙂 It’s so much fun!
I hope to see your Hot Beverage projects over at Cut it Up! You could win a $20 store credit from Newton’s Nook! They sell adorable stamps and coordinating dies!
