Written Instruction:

Print and cut your desired template onto cardstock. Use scissors and x-acto knives to help you cut.

Step 1

Feed piece B into the slot of piece A, make sure that piece A is facing as shown above.


Step 2

Fold over the scored lines of piece A.  The horizontal score line is not to be folded as it is a glue guide.  Place glue along the highlighted areas and then sandwich piece B inside of piece A.  Give piece B a pull after glue to make sure it hasn't been glued down. Set aside.


Step 3

Take piece C and decorate with the accessories included.  Those that have a cut out need only be decorated with the handle piece.


Step 4

Place glue along the underside of the slit of piece A (shown in blue above) and the back of piece C along the bottom section of the mug and the top rim. Glue piece C on to piece A.


Step 5

Continue to decorate with the rest of the accessory pieces.  Glue the candy cane together.  Glue the large whipped cream piece on to piece B placing the glue in the highlighted area in yellow (shown above). Glue the candy cane into place, line the back of the small whipped cream piece with foam dimensionals and glue that into place.


Happy Crafting!
