From Your Little "Deers"


The teacher gift is complete.  I saw the idea for the reindeer fingerprint mug on Pinterest and just thought it was adorable.  The mug came out absolutely delightful - wish I could keep it for myself.  (This was the original pin: http://pinterest.com/pin/159666749260777499/ . It is on my crafty items and gifts board)
 
I am not a big card maker but thought I would try my hand at it using my cricket cartridge.  I thought I had a different looking reindeer.  While writing this post I realized it was on a different cartridge. 
 
So the teacher in me had a hard time writing "deers" since I know the singular and plural form is deer (no s).  People may refer to kids as my little dears, so it is the play on words that I need to keep in mind.  Needless to say, it was hard to write "deers" knowing it was going to a teacher.
 


Can't wait to see her expression when she opens it.  I know the students are going to be excited and I really had a fun time making this gift.  Thank you origianl pinner!

Happy Creating!

  2. Just curious, how did you get the finger prints on the mug and make them permanent?

    1. I believed I used Pebeo paints and then baked it. The black is sharpie marker that I did before baking and then hoped that would bake in too. Not sure if that stayed. They have Pebeo markers too!
