Valentine's Day Mug Decals Step-by-Step Guide
Step Two - Design Space Changes
There are quite a few designs in this package and you will need to choose the ones you want to use.
Before you begin, you will need to ungroup the SVG file so you can pick out what you want.
If you choose the lips, select all the lip parts and then Weld them together. This way they will cut as one piece.
Some of lips have many parts - make sure you select all the parts before you weld.
Do the same for any of the other designs you want to use.
You can leave everything one color and then move the pieces around the mat in the next step in order to use different colors of permanent vinyl.
Save your project, then click on Make It.
Step Three - Cutting and Assembly
When you first have the mat on the screen, you may want to move your decal pieces around on the mat so you can use more than once color of vinyl. This way you can use smaller pieces and not waste materials (see the video).
Once everything is cut, weed out the negative parts and only keep what you will be using on the mat.
Cut pieces of transfer tape to fit over each of the decals. Remove the backing from the transfer tape and stick to your decal.
Pull your decal off the backing so that it is stuck to your transfer tape only. This may take a little bit of work using your scraper to make sure your decals does cling to the transfer tape.
Do this for each decal you will be using.
Step Four - The Finishing Touches
Now that you have your decal on the transfer tape, it is time to place it on your mug.
I usually put a piece of parchment paper underneath my decal and only let a small portion stick out at the top. The part that is sticking out is the part you will be placing on your mug first.
Parchment paper makes it easier to line things up before you press down on the whole decal.
Gently press your decal in place and smooth out any bubbles.
