About this deal

The Cricut Mug Press is a must-have piece of creative kit that lets you transfer your own design onto mugs in minutes. Create your own mugs with our video tutorial (above) then simply follow our step-by-step guide to make your own Christmas mug. With Cricut Infusible Ink, you get the fantastic finish of sublimation but without the cost. The infusible ink sheets come either as solid colours or patterned designs. The sublimation/infusible ink is already applied to the surface of the sheets so you just have to cut your chosen design with your Cricut machine, weed the unneeded parts away and then press the design onto your project with a heat press. You can fill the DIY Christmas mugs with ingredients to make a warming and comforting hot chocolate. All you need is a sachet of hot chocolate, marshmallows and perhaps a festive candy cane or chocolate sprinkles. Or fill with sweets or loose leaf tea for a different take on this gift. Be sure to use your Mug Press in a well-ventilated space and have heat-safe surfaces to hand. Cricut Mug Press FAQs What's the difference between sublimation and infusible inks?
