Covering a Dollar Tree Travel Mug

I wanted to make a covered mug for a girlfriend who had a stroke and uses a walker. I bought her a cup holder for her walker that not only holds the travel cup, but also holds a small bottle of hand sanitizer and her cell phone.

Dollar Tree has changed the pattern on the outside of their travel mugs and here’s the link to how they look now. https://tinyurl.com/y4bltpfr

The paper I used was the 12 x 12″ cover sheet for Graphic 45’s Home Sweet Home. Here’s a link to it on ebay, as it is a retired collection, so I’m not sure where else you can find it. https://tinyurl.com/y58wol46

I took the paper that’s inside the mug and laid it on the bottom back of the Home Sweet Home paper I was using, and traced it, then cut it out. I then cut out the front of the image, including the woman hanging clothes and two pieces of the border that I could glue on either side of her. I glued them down then put it back in the mug and called it done.
