Etching glass

Etching glass is something that's new to me...I love it! I bought this etching cream at Michael's (with a 40% off coupon) 

I use vinyl from Joann's to make a stencil with my Cricut. (Be sure to cut it out as a mirror image so that it looks backwards to you for the bottom of the baking pans. For mirrors or other items you can skip this step) I use transfer tape to pick up all the pieces of the stencil at once. 

I placed my stencil on the bottom of the glass baking pan. 

I peeled off the transfer tape and pushed out all the air bubbles in the vinyl. 


Then I put the etching cream on. (Using gloves is recommended when using etching cream) It takes a healthy amount of cream. I left it on for about 30 seconds and then scraped the excess cream of and put it back into the jar. 

Next rinse the cream off with warm water.

After I rinsed the cream off my daughter peeled off the vinyl.

Voila! You have a personalized gift! 

The great thing about these is that people will know who these pans belong too. 
The wedding card was a file I got from The Cutting Cafe. If you'd like to see more on that you can click here.

There is so many possibilities with glass etching. Here is a few more projects I have done following the steps above.

Thanks for stopping by! Happy Crafting!
