I really love giving gifts. Don’t get me wrong, I like getting too, but I love giving. I tend to get really excited and want to give right away. Like tonight when I finished Boyfriend’s Valentine’s Day gifts and I made him open them. I figure who really wants to wait anyway. Not me. Here’s one of his gifts.
I started with an 8x10 frame. I ordered mine in a set from Walmart.com because I have a few other projects in mind as well. Then I cut the amersand out of contact paper with my Circuit. I prefer contact paper to vinyl for etching because it is cheaper.
Slather on a good layer of etching cream and let it sit for however long the bottle says. I usually let it sit for a bit longer just for good measure. Then I cut the words out of vinyl using my Circuit again. I love my Sure Cuts A Lot software because I can use whatever font I want. Make sure you flip it before you cut it because we want to adhere the vinyl to the back of the glass. Voila, you’re done! You can put in a picture or a piece of paper. Plus you can change it out for different looks. Boyfriend loved it and I do too.
