The Cricut Joy is the smaller cousin of the Cricut Explore Air 2. It is super cute, super compact, and super easy to use! Like all Cricut machines, it is also easy to set up and use. You will be on your crafting in about 10 minutes (probably less!).

To begin, hop on over to Cricut Design Space. Once that is open, just click here for the mug design. The design says “I like my coffee hot just like my wife.” You may want to make this part of a gift from mom and the coffee canister from the kids.
Click the “Make it” button on the bottom right. When the pop-up asks how will you load your materials? Click “Without Mat”.
Yes, that’s right! For this project, you will use Cricut Smart Vinyl. Smart vinyl is used without a mat!
On the next screen, you will see that the vinyl needs to be 4.75″ x 5.75″. The travel mug we used is 16 oz. You can edit the size as needed to fit your mug. Use the guide on the back of the Smart Vinyl to cut the size you need.
Click continue in Design Space and it will connect to your machine. Load the Smart Vinyl into the Cricut Joy – without a mat.
Once the cut is finished, weed the design. You will find the Smart Vinyl very easy to weed.
Use transfer paper to transfer the design onto the travel mug.
For the coffee container, you can use any font you like to create “COFFEE” or use our design here. Follow the same process as with the travel mug. We used the same Smart Vinyl for the coffee container so no mat is needed when cutting. Just make sure to size the cut so it fits your canister.
Finally, you will need a card for Dad’s gifts. Cricut joy makes the coolest cards!
You will need a set of Cricut Joy Insert Cards. They come in lots of fun color combinations. You will also need a Cricut Joy Card Mat to make the card. Cricut offers a great tutorial on using the Insert Cards and Card Mat on their website.
Cricut offers several Father’s Day options in Design Space. We used this Dad design. You will need a Cricut Access membership to make the cards. The membership gives you access to thousands of fonts, designs, cards, and more!
And there you have it! A great coffee set for a java-loving dad for Father’s Day!
