How to Make Cricut Donut Disturb Mug
Whether mom needs a little R&R on Mother’s Day or she just needs a moment in the morning before she’s had her coffee, this custom Donut Disturb Mug is the perfect gift for mom.
Create your custom design in Cricut Design Space using the Mug Design Setup.
Place the Infusible Ink transfer sheet on the Standard Grip Mat and cut out your design.
Use a lint roller to remove any fibers from the mug. Place the Infusible Ink transfer design on the mug.
Set your mug in the Cricut Mug Press and firmly press down on the lever to secure the mug in place.
Once the transfer has finished all 5 LED lights will light up and the machine will beep. Using the handle carefully remove the mug and place it on an EasyPress mat, and let it cool completely before removing the Infusible Ink sheet.
Now you have an adorable custom mug that’s 100% permanent and will last wash after wash.
