I Mustache You to Make this Father’s Day Gift for Dad
I Mustache You to Make this Father’s Day gift for Dad by Cupcake Wishes and Birthday Dreams. I love Cupcake Wishes and Birthday Dreams‘ creativity! She can make just about anything! This etched glass jar is something I have wanted to try for a long time, and I may finally have the courage to try it after seeing how easy it looks!
From Cupcake Wishes and Birthday Dreams:
In our home, dad is king – except sometimes when it comes to keeping his special candy stash all to himself. So, to make sure the kids know that dad’s favorite treat (bubblegum) is off limits I created an etched candy jar just for him for Father’s Day!
Using my eClips2 Electronic Cutting Machine, I created an image to make a stencil with adhesive vinyl. Once the image was cut, I weeded out the positive pieces (the solid letters) – I left the pieces in place for letters that have negative spaces like A’s and D’s.
Then, I placed transfer paper over the vinyl to keep all the pieces in place and placed it over the glass jar.
The etching cream was next. I learned that etching cream is not nice to skin or certain surfaces. So, I was sure to protect my work table….and didn’t put gloves on my hands because I like to live dangerously….but you should really wear protective gloves when you work with it.The application is pretty simple, you just apply it with a Popsicle stick and let it sit for about 5 minutes and then rinse it off. Allow it to dry properly and then remove your adhesive vinyl.
