I drink tea year round, but nothing makes me crave tea more than a good ol’ head cold. The kids and I have been passing around a cold for the past few weeks, which means I’ve been been drinking multiple mugs of Bigelow I Love Lemon tea a day. The warmth and comfort from a hot cup of tea soothes the throat and provides relaxation at the end of a long, cold day. My mom introduced me to tea in my twenties, and I’ve been drinking it since! Tea is also a nice gift idea for a tea lover. A true tea lover can never have enough varieties of tea to try! The next time someone you know is feeling under the weather, here’s how to create a simple Tea Lover’s Gift Basket, complete with a DIY Tea Lover’s Mug.

DIY Mug Supplies:

  • Blank Mug
  • Permanent Vinyl
  • Transfer Tape
  • Cricut Explore Air 2
  • Measuring Tape

Measure the front of the mug and determine how large the words need to be.

Open Cricut Design Space. Design the words, using the measurement that you obtained in the step above.

Cut the words with the permanent vinyl and the Cricut Explore Air 2.

“Weed” the vinyl, which is basically a fancy term for removing the vinyl that doesn’t belong.

    Oh my goodness! I love that mug. That is so creative and adorable and would certainly make me feel better. I always drink lemon tea when I’m not feeling well, so this would be perfect. Such a beautiful gift basket! #client
