How to make a Heart Scribble Mug

Draw a heart (or any other shape) onto sticky back plastic (I drew around a heart shaped biscuit cutter).  Cut out the middle of the shape.

Stick the sticky back plastic onto your mug.  Make sure the cut out heart is where you would like your heart design to be on your mug. Smooth around the edge of the heart shape to make sure it is flat against the mug. Then get scribbling!

When you have finished your design leave it to dry for a minute or two and peel off the sticky back plastic.

To make your design permanent and washable follow the oven firing instructions on the back of the pen. If you follow the instructions they are even dishwasher safe. 

Cup of tea anybody!

  4. These look lovely. I couldn't get hold of sticky back plastic here in Holland unfortunately. Do you have any suggestions for what else I could use? Wide sellotape maybe, or masking tape? Thanks!

    1. A few strips of tape should work in the same way as sticky back plastic
