Decorative Mugs for Father's Day

I was trying to decide what treats to make for Father's Day.  I was cleaning out some of my kitchen cabinets and decided to throw out a bunch of old coffee mugs that have been around forever.  I went on Amazon and brought some mugs that I could personalize.  They had a whole bunch that you could choose from.  This was so easy to do, I can't believe I didn't think of this sooner.  They are going to look so much nicer than the ones I threw out!

All you have to do is unscrew the bottom of the mug and take out the paper insert and use that as a pattern for whatever paper you decide you want to use. Cut it out and just pop it in and screw the bottom back on.  The first one I used the back of a sheet of scrapbooking paper and decorated it with the stamps from the set One Wild Ride.  I thought it turned out great!

The next one did not take a very good picture, but I made it for Joe using snowmobiling paper and stickers.  The paper is blue and dark which made it hard to photo.  I love it!  I think I'm going to make one for myself.

The next mug is for the camper in the group.

I hope the guys will like them, I know I do!!  What's nice is that you can always change them up if you want.  I kept one of the inserts for a template in my stash. 

Yesterday we had so much fun.  Jennifer had her Pre-Kindergarten graduation.  It was so cute.  They sang some songs and even wore cute hats and received a diploma.  We then went out to dinner and of course stopped for ice cream for dessert.  We hope everyone has a wonderful Father's Day weekend.

Thanks for stopping by,

Oh, my word, these are amazing gifts! I thought at first you stamped on the mug and wondered how in the world, but what fun that it's a paper insert. So cool!

Oh I Love these. I had bought one a couple of years ago and put Owl paper in it. But it opened at the top. Just didn't like It. Going to have to look into these. Looks a lot better than the one I had. I'm sure they loved them. Thanks for visiting my blog and for the nice comment.
