    Default Glass-etched Christmas mugs...under $5 gift

    I took tons of pics, because couldn't get the letters and reindeer to show up well in the photos. They look sooo much better IRL. :/

    I made one for Kayson and one for Cohen. I thought it'd be special for them to have their own mugs for hot chocolate on Christmas morning and Eve.




    I used Alphalicious font and Christmas Cheer for the reindeer on the back.





    just trying for a better shot.... ugh....


    Gwen, you're the photographer here...any ideas how I could take better pics of etched glass?

    Anyways, these are really easy and inexpensive gifts. I bought the mugs at Walmart for 2.50 each, so less than $5 total. for those of you who are new to glass etching, I used Armour Etch, vinyl and my Cricut to make these. First you cut your image(s) out of the vinyl. Then place the vinyl on the glass, use a q-tip to spread the Armour Etch on top of image, wait 5 minutes, then rinse off. Then peel vinyl off mugs.

    those came out GREAT! LOVE them!!! I still haven't tried glass etching with my cricut. I keep seeing these type of projects on the Crituc MBs, but I never tried it. I will have to venture out into that sometime...you have inspired me
