I know I've mentioned a couple times in past posts that I'm helping with the wedding of two of my good friends, Heather & Tillman. They are having a small, simple, winter wedding.
As a nice little something extra, I decided to make bride and groom toasting glasses for their special day.
What do you think?
I started off with two plain champagne glasses, glass etching cream and stencils I made out of vinyl using my awesome Silhouette machine.
I carefully applied the stencil to the glasses. My idea was to do the Mr. and Mrs. designs in relief, so I made sure the stencil was exactly where I wanted it.
Once I had the stencils exactly where I wanted them, it was time to apply the etching cream. I personally use gloves every time I use etching cream, just to make sure I'm protecting my hands.
The directions say that you should leave the etching cream on for about five minutes before washing it off. I usually wait about 20 - 30 minutes before washing the cream off, just to make sure the cream has had time to do its thing. When you're rinsing the glasses make sure you rinse it really well to get all the cream off.
Once the etching cream is washed off, all that's left is to peel off the stencil and admire your design.
I added some ribbon to tie the glasses in with the rest of the wedding decor.
I'm very pleased with how they turned out, and I think it's the perfect idea for a winter themed wedding! The bride loved them, and that's what is really important.
Cheers to Tillman & Heather!
I wish you all the happiness in the world.
