Personalized Coffee Mug

I’ve been brainstorming great gifts to give as a thank you when I stumbled upon Running With Glitter’s tutorial for these super cute personalized coffee mugs! 
I bought my customizable travel mugs at  several months ago but they seem to not sell them anymore. =(  I’ll update this post if I can find them again….nothing beats a Starbucks mug and they were super affordable at only $10! 
I had lots of fun creating these mugs and they turned out super cute! 
This mug insert is by far my favorite.  Using my Sure Cuts A Lot 2 software, I cut out the different frames and glued them on top of each other.  The only change I made was on the top frame.  Instead of cutting out the name and gluing it to the top frame, I cut it into the frame so all I had to do was lay it on top of the orange frame and I was finished.  So easy!
I decided to put it all together in a gift basket.  Remember the name I cut out from my last frame for the mug?  Since I didn’t use it, I added it to the front of the envelope!  Love it!
I’m super excited about giving these away to two people who did so much for me this year!
