Hello!!! Happy Monday to all of you!!!
Today over at BBTB2 we have a super fun challenge starting!
Now you know I LOVE my Cricut and making cards, but one of the other things I love my Cricut for is to make other types of crafts including - Glass Etching! Have you ever tried it before? Well you can use your Cricut to create stencils for just this type of project!
And that is what the challenge is - to use a Cricut cut as a Stencil.
You can create any type of project, I decided to etch "Treats!" on this fun glass jar I picked up from Tai Pan for $2. The cut comes from Birthday Bash, it's one of the phrases you can find on that cart.
I have pictures to show you the different steps I follow when I etch.
1. Cut the stencil out on some vinyl and position it on whatever glass you are using.
2. Using a paint brush, cover the stencil with a good coating of the Armour Etch. You can buy this at any craft store or online. I bought mine at Hobby Lobby and used a 40% coupon. Let it sit for 30 minutes or so then wipe it off with a paper towel - be sure to follow the directions on the bottle and take the precautions like wearing gloves and such :) Peel off the vinyl and just use some water to rinse off any remaining "paste" (don't know what else to call it). Dry off the glass and you're good to go!!!
3. My favorite step - Fill It Up!
Actually, my favorite step is eating the treats inside :)
Honestly though, this is one of the things I do for birthday gifts for neighbors and friends. I just tie a cute little ribbon or some tulle around it and make a tag to add and it's good to go!
But I think I am keeping this one for myself :)
I hope you are able to join us over at BBTB2 this week and be sure to check out all the amazing projects done by the Design Team!!!
Thanks for checkin' in!!!
