Now I am no hero when it comes to Photoshop so after failing over and over again I gave up and used Windows Word ( I know, ) If you know your way around Photoshop I definitely recommend  the tutorial on the blog! Now if you don’t have Photoshop and no idea how else to do this then you can take a look at my steps down here 🙂

You’ll need

Computer with printer / Stanley knife and ruler

The print screen of my steps :

 photostrips word

 Step 1

 Import  a square .

Step 2

Copy/paste the square 3 times and line them up.

Step 3

Go  to the formatting image menu and choose the content which in this case is an illustration,  do this for all four squares and you are ready to print !

Step 4

When printed use your Stanley knife and ruler to cut out your strips, more strips on one paper makes it easier to cut them and it saves paper obviously.

And you’re done !

You can use coloured photos ( filtered by Instagram ) or black and white .  On the original tutorial she made the frames white which also looked pretty cool.

Step 3

 very carefully peel of the tape ( and when I say very carefully I MEAN very carefully !!! mine ripped about 4 times do to my lack of focus and patience which meant I got to start all over) .. and transfer  the cut out to your mug

And paint over it !

Step 4

Let it dry for 30 minutes or so , you don’t want the paint to be completely dry.

Remove tape en voila ! your very own customized mug !
