Etched Mugs

I fell in love with these mugs that I found at the Dollar Tree. I thought they would be great for hot chocolate. So I bought several and decided to etch names and snowflakes on them. They names were pretty easy to etch, but the snowflakes were a little time consuming. It seemed like it took me forever to tape around everything because I didn't want the etching cream to get everywhere it was not suppose to be. I'm really happy with how they turned out. I am just showing one with a name because there are little snoops out there, lol, and I don't want them to see one with their name on it. I really don't remember what cart I used for the names...I think that I used a few different ones, but for the snowflakes I used Christmas Noel and Christmas Cheer Cricut carts. I used design studio so that I could cut out several snowflakes at various sizes. I plan on putting spoons dipped in chocolate, marshmallows and hot chocolate in the mugs. Thanks for looking!!!!!!

Those turned out great. Im gonna try glass etching when I get a chance. I just got a cricut while visiting the states last week for a smoking 89.99. Its not the fancy create or expression but for what Ill use it for it will work great. Ps I found your blog through the cricut website.
