Cricut Joy is a fun little crafting machine that lets you cut and draw custom designs for just about anything. Because of its diminutive size, you can only cut items up to about 5.5 inches wide. However, you are almost unlimited in length; the Cricut Joy can cut decals up to 20 feet long! Just keep those dimensions in mind as you plan your projects.

A mug like the Maars Skinny Mini Insulated Tumbler (opens in new tab) is a great place to start. It has a small, smooth surface area, and it lends itself to just about any design. You can use Cricut Joy Smart Vinyl - Permanent (opens in new tab) if you want your decal to last through wash after wash, or you can use Cricut Joy Smart Vinyl - Removable (opens in new tab) if you want a more temporary decal.

I'm kind of obsessed with Infusible Ink Transfer Sheets (opens in new tab), which come in a huge variety of colors ready to be infused into your item of choice. I love my inked up Infusible Ink t-shirt (opens in new tab), and the color has not faded as I've washed it.
