Turn an ordinary coffee mug into a personalized gift using cut-outs from wrapping paper old magazines!

Step 1: What You'll Need

  • scissors or X-acto knife
  • Dishwasher Mod Podge
  • sponge brush

Step 2: Prep Work

Cut out images and words that you like from your old magazines or wrapping paper, and plan out your arrangement on your mug.

Step 3: Glue Them On

Now, using Dishwasher Mod Podge, brush on a nice, thick layer and stick on your cut-outs. Then, once dry, brush on at least 2 coats of the Mod Podge to seal, and allow to dry and cure.

Step 4: Ready to Use

Now, you can sip on your morning coffee in style with these trendy mugs! Since the Dishwasher Mod Pdoge works best for projects, like this one, you can rinse your mugs in the sink or put in the dishwasher, and the images won't wash off!
