*Merry Monday* Etched Juice Glasses

I love little juice glasses don't you?  They are so cute and small and the possibilities for personalizing them are endless.  So I thought - what a great gift!  Inexpensive and unique.  I bought some glasses at Tuesday Morning for $1.29 each, but my hubby also saw some at Goodwill for $.37 - super super cheap!

Next I browsed around on Google and found some images that I liked - deer seem to be really in right now so I decided to make 2 glasses - a Mr. and Mrs. Deer. 

Here is what you will need:
contact paper or masking tape
a picture to use as a stencil
juice glass
etching cream
exacto knife

Step 1: Print out the image onto cardstock.  Cut out the silhouette to make a stencil.
Step 2:  Trace the image onto the contact paper or masking tape.

Step 3:  Tape the stencil to your glass and cut out the image (right on the glass - it won't ,matter if it scratches it, you are engraving).

Step 4:  Follow the directions on the etching cream - put it over your stencil, let it sit (I found it took 5 minutes not 60 seconds), then rinse off.

Step 5:  Remove the stencil and admire your work!

Happy etching and have a merry merry Monday! - jessica
