Milk for Santa Glass Etching Mug
Created by OMC Designer Whitney

Supplies Used:

Oh My Crafts Vinyl and Transfer Tape
Armour Etch Glass Cream and paintbrush
Glass Mug or other glass material  

Electronic Cutting Machine (Silhouette)


1. Cut the image you would like to use as a stencil out of vinyl with any electronic cutter.
This image was designed on Silhouette Studio and cut with the Silhouette machine. “Milk for Santa” is the Elephants in Cherry Trees font (free downloadable font).
2. Weed away images from vinyl liner so you are left with the template.
3. Apply transfer tape to vinyl and use it to transfer the vinyl onto glass surface. Press the vinyl down firmly and peel off transfer tape.
Tip: Make sure there are no bubbles around the opening of the images. Bubbles in the solid part of the vinyl do not matter.
6. Clean the exposed part of the glass then apply a thick layer of etching cream. Let the cream sit for about ten minutes.
7. Rinse cream completely off with water and then take off the vinyl. Clean the glass and you’re done!
Behind the glass is Kanban Crafts’ Mirror Paper and a bag of hot chocolate. Adding a solid behind the glass etching really makes the glass stand out.

How to make a personalized tag:

Supplies Used:

Martha Stewart : Christmas Custom Stamp Set
Lifestyle Crafts : Nesting Rings
Lifestyle Crafts : Nesting Lace Circles
Bazzill Cardstock: Red, White and Green
Tim Holtz : Distress Ink Pad for Embossing  
Marvy Uchida - Embossing Heat Tool

Create your own personalized stamp with the Martha Stewart’s Christmas Custom Stamp Set. It is great for monogram setting, address labels, personalized messages, greetings, and more!

For this tag I added the Oh My Crafts stamping letters to the acrylic block and stamped it with an embossing ink pad onto red paper, sprinkled white embossing powder and then heat set the embossing powder.

Next I used the Lifestyle Crafts Nesting Circles to cut a circle around the stamp and then added another circle frame out of white. Finished it off by die cutting the Nesting Lace Circle out of green cardstock and tying it with ribbon to our Christmas treats.
