I'm not 100% sure this was the right place to post this, but...  I made these as a gift for a friend's wedding last month.  His new bride is obcessed with penguins and loves teal.  The original idea credit should probably go to my sister.  I think she suggested etching glass.  The cups are from Ikea.  I have them in red and really like them... plus they're sturdy, actually colored glass instead of just coated, and reasonably priced.

These little penguins were on the invitations, so I knew she'd like them.  She may have drawn them herself, I'm not sure.

(sorry for the crappiness of the photo, glass is tough to photograph in a dark apartment)

....so what to put them in?  I was originally going to just spraypaint a box, but my health and the weather changed my plans.  The night before the wedding, while still rushing to finish the glasses, I grabbed some tissue and borrowed some Mod Podge from my sister and did this...

The next morning, with the bottom still wet, I packed it....

(you can't see the wax paper guarding against the dampness)

.... and ribboned it....

Exceedingly last-minute (I had to contact the bride telling her to varnish the box if she wanted to use it in the bathroom because I didn't have time to do it myself), but I was pleased with the results.  The box even matched the wedding's color theme.

The bride and groom have both said how much they like it, but I was never actually thanked.   Roll Eyes

Cute glasses!  I think it took my SIL a little over a month to send out thank you's, and my husband never did do his (I told him I would do my relatives, and he could do his. This was before I knew him as well).  Roll Eyes   So I guess I'm trying to say that you may be receiving a thank you sometime soon, and you may not get one if she's counting on him to do his friends. 


Where did all this fabric come from? I CAN'T have bought THAT much!
