Wedding Gift-- Monogrammed Pitcher and Glasses

We went to a sweet wedding on Saturday and watched two beautiful, young lovebirds tie the knot.

I cried through the whole thing,

even the slideshow at the reception showing pictures of them as children,

and I didn't even know them as children.

I need help.

Anyway, I wanted to share the gift that I made for the happy couple.

Using Armor Etch and my cutting machine, I monogrammed a glass pitcher and glasses.

I have also done this before with an exacto knife and contact paper.  Just print out your design and trace it on the contact paper, then cut it out.

Stick it to your glass and follow the directions on the glass etching cream.

I went with a Lemonade Theme:

Inside the pitcher, I placed a recipe for my favorite drink: lemon-limeade made from freshly squeezed fruit.

Ooooh, this recipe is making me crave some warm afternoons on the patio.

Love,

  12. Oh my goodness I love this! I've been wanting to do etched glass!! What kind of machine do you have? I've seen it done a lot with the Silhouette. I have a Cricut and want a Silhouette now so badly. I'm your newest follower!

  13. I love this! What a great idea. I have a quick question for you about Armor Etch...do you ever have problems with it being blotchy? I have tried it a few times with contact paper and paper punched shapes (snowflake, circle, etc.) on clear glass plates and glasses, and it is always blotchy! I am wondering if maybe I have a bad jar of Armor Etch? Thanks!

  14. Yes-- I always leave mine on for at least 10 minutes (the bottle says 5) and that seems to do the trick. :)
