- Sheet white printer paper, 8-by-11
- Scissors

Instructions
1. Select a mug for the project. It’s best to use a plain one in a solid color with no logos or other images.

3. Print the image out on printer paper. The image's size will vary, but leave some space around the rim and bottom of the mug.
4. Cut out the photo and decide where you’d like it to be on the mug. Make sure the area is clean and dry.
5. Liberally apply Modge Podge to the back of the photo and place the photo onto the spot. Press firmly.
6. Smooth out any wrinkles in the paper.
7. Apply a generous layer of Modge Podge on top of the image to protect it.
