So I have decided to go on an uber budget to pay off my credit card.  This translates to not spending any money on anything not needed to survive.  It won't be forever.  But in the meantime, all my friends keep having birthdays!  I love 'em so much, so that's why I found this site so I can learn how to make gifts.  I tell ya... I'M HOOKED!  I think I'll be making all my gifts from now on, budget or not!

I've seen some great glass etching on here, and followed some great tuts, and came up with this idea.  I was hoping to find a glass mug, but no such luck.  So I decided to experiment with ceramic, and it worked!!!  Still, as a back up I bought a candy jar.  I etched on his favorite quote that he made up himself.  I thought maybe he could put it on his desk and toss candy to students who came up with the right answer.  I bought some hard candy and filled it up before giving to him.  Dollar store mug, dollar store jar.  Etching cream and letter sticker cost a bit, but it's better than giving a cheapo $10 gift... Way more heart in this, and I do have cream and letters left over for another project, so a good investment!  His name, btw, is Mr. Steenburgh...




Thanks for all the inspiration, craftsteronies!~

That looks awesome!!! I did some etching for a swap but I couldn't find the letters. Sad I did mine by sticking contact paper on and carving the letters out with an xacto knife. It worked very well but with my horrible penmanship, it didn't look as nice as your letters Smiley
