Christmas Craft Show-Off

Processed with VSCOcam with t1 preset

This is the week when everyone can finally reveal what crafty things they’ve been making for Christmas gifts, right?

I only have one small handcrafted Christmas gift to show, but I was really pleased with the way it came out. I made my parents a set of coffee mugs emblazoned with their Sandybrook Ranch cattle brand. I created the brand in Illustrator and then printed it out and traced it onto the mugs using graphite paper and then filled in the design with black porcelain pen. I baked them in a 350 degree oven for 40 minutes to set the ink and that was it!

My parents really liked the gift and I’m sure next time we go to visit they’ll be sipping their morning coffee out of their new Sandybrook Ranch mugs.
