Christmas In July Day #5 "Handmade Gifts"

Welcome to Day 5 of  "Christmas In July Celebration". Today's theme is 'Handmade Gifts'.
This is my hand made gift project.  I actually made 2 .






Wanted to try my hand at glass etching, it is really pretty easy. On the coaster set there is a little floral image from "Joys of the Season"   in one corner on each coaster ( sadly it is barely visible) for the inserts in the place for a picture I stamped some tag images also from my collection) in Tuxedo Black ink on pieces of cream CS, Wish the etching showed up more. The second gift project are a couple of glass candle holder/ candy dishes. The etched images came from "Wall Decor And More" All were cut from black vinyl with a 'kiss' cut so I still have the positive image in black vinyl for future projects. I really enjoyed this project. Hope you like it as well.
Remember I am giving away a "Your Story" at the completion of this week long celebration. All it takes is a comment on my 5 projects posted here ( one more to come).
For some really awesome projects please stop by Giselle's Blog and see what the rest of the designers have prepared and enter to win some awesome blog candy there as well.
Thanks for stopping by!
Big Blog Hugs, Janet

These are gorgeous Janet! i have never tried any kind of glass etching but I am fascinated by it. I probably will never try it as I have too many crafty addictions already :)
