I love personalized items with my last name. You would think with a name like
Our niece is getting married March 20, 2012. I had an itch to get creative with her wedding gift. She is still in college and will be setting up a home for the first time, so of course she is going to need it ALL. Since one of my favorite things to do is cook, I went on a Pinterest search and ran across a few glass etching projects with Pyrex casserole dishes. Who doesn't love a good casserole? Who doesn't like to impress their family with a great casserole the first time you have them for dinner? Or, have you ever taken a casserole dish to a potluck or to a friend and had to leave the dish and never have it returned?
Here is the gift that my niece opened yesterday from us- Personalized Etched Casserole Dishes, etched personally by ME!
It only takes contact paper, Pyrex/Anchor Hocking Casserole Dishes, a Cricut, a single use sponge paint brush and a magic ingredient from Hobby Lobby called Armour Etch- $19.99 for the 10oz size so make sure you use a 40% of coupon! And of course rubber gloves and eye protection (yeah right- I had to put that disclosure in there).
|Cut contact paper line side up with Cricut. You will need to predetermine size according to number of letter and size of pan.|
|Peel paper off of the contact paper. Lay the sticky side of contact paper on the underside of pan. Make sure all edges are completely smooth and even. No gaps.|
|When you flip it over, this is how the letters/name will appear.|
|The 8x11 dish- ELLIOTT on the bottom|
|The 9x13 pan- ELLIOTT on one side.|
I etched from the inside on this one.
|The other side of the 9x13- EST 2012|
|The 11x13- the happy couple's initials!|
