Make Your Own Photo Cup

Updated on April 24, 2014

DIY Custom Photo Cup

Personalize your own photo cup with your own printed pictures. It's easy to create your own custom designed drinking cup with a design for every day of the week. Or make several for graduation presents, birthdays, or Christmas.

Photography is my passion and I also have just a slight case of ADD, so I like to mix things up to keep from getting bored. I'm that way with purses. So why would I want the same travel mug or cup every morning?

The point is, I don't have too.

With this customizable tumbler cup I can use my own photos and design a custom cup to change ever week, or every month, or every season. What fun!

How to Create a Photo Mug

METHOD 1: remove the template, measure and design a digital photo collage in your computer to print on your home computer.

METHOD 2: traditional scrap booking method by cutting photos and pasting them to colorful backgrounds.

Like any arts and crafts it takes patience and the mug needs to be washed by hand and not fully immersed in water. You can scrapbook, like I did for my first mug, and attach cut and trimmed photos to the template, or you can fully design a collage in a photo editing program. To protect your creation the photo collage can be laminated before inserting.

Below are some links to take you to sites with pre-made designs and also Photoshop templates for those who want to use their own photos.
