Being a nanny, I am continually thinking of ways to preserve children’s art, because let’s be honest…we make a lot of it! Remember that Personalized Child Signature Tutorial I did a while back? Well, this project is the same concept of utilizing your child’s art, the magic of the trace feature in Silhouette Studio, and your CAMEO. But this time, with Silhouette’s Stencil Vinyl & a mug! And… it’s just in time for Father’s Day!
Using a drawing one of the little boys I nanny for drew of his baby brother, I traced the drawing in studio and sized it to fit my mug. You can get more detailed steps on tracing in Studio here. To keep the transfer more durable, I used a Porcelain 150 marker to fill in my stencil and followed it’s baking instructions to cure the drawing to the mug.
Do you already have a drawing lying around you’re kiddo drew up that you’ve been wanting to keep around longer? Grab it and turn it into usable house ware, a gift, or so many other possibilities! In the meantime, I’ll be over here making a million more of these, because holy. cute!
