July Group Projects

Tonight is our monthly stampin' get together, however this month's projects don't require a lot of stamping! I usually try to teach one technique a month....etched glass for July. We'll be using the glass votive holders my husband picked up while he was visiting Fl.

I created some samples using recycled baby food jars and a larger one from the roasted peppers I had used for lunch the other day. They turned out really cute...the etching is much more visible in real life! These would make great table decorations.

Attempted to get a glowing evening shot....

We were also keeping with a outdoor theme so we made some rather pretty BBQ apron invitations. The BBQ stamp is heat embossed in white (difficult to capture in pictures). Yes, I know these are not your typical BBQ colors, but I wanted to use some of SU new In Colors and purple is my we have a girlish invite. The inside details can be printed and then attached or simply handwritten.

How about a Tic~Tac~Toe game on the tables?

...or some water bottles?
I think these would be nice as part of a coordinating gift set or for a group.

Okay - what time should I be there and what tools do I need to bring? ;-) What a fun class! Love those projects! (I've always wanted to try glass etching, but I'm too scared!) Have fun!

All you need is some contact paper, punches, and glass etching cream. Give it a try...quite simple!
