Since I don\'t own a machine that I can use to make stencils, I had to figure out another way to decorate my cups.  

Luckly, I found that I had clear decals that I bought from Hammermill Papers that I could use. My only problem is that they didn\'t stick really well to the slightly rough sides of the travel mugs I had. Since I had already bought the travel mugs for gifts, I used them anyway.

But they worked well enought for us to have our "The North Pole" drink in them on Christmas morning. Next year I will use the white mugs.
