(jars purchased at Walmart for $2.97/each)
I remember making acid etched mirrors in high school and it was quite the labor intensive project. However, making acid etched projects with a cricut is so simple! The Young Women at our church recently did a Girl’s Camp fundraiser and made acid etched plates to sell. They were a hit. My friend, Tanya, let me use a little bit of her acid etching to make a casserole dish for a wedding gift and these little jars. A little bit goes a long way. I hardly used anything and was able to make several fun gifts. Now I wish I had a bottle of my own so that I can make things for myself. Casserole dishes, jars….it’s a bit addicting. I’ll have to print out a 40% off coupon to Hobby Lobby and grab a bottle sometime.
I went to Target and picked up a bunch of 50% off chocolate bags. Kisses, PB Cups, and mini candy bars. They were in fall colors, but for $1 bag, I couldn’t beat that. I put a small piece of black construction paper behind the etching so that it stood out and didn’t blend in with the candy. It also looks like a little chalkboard! Perfect for a teacher’s gift!
