Etched Casserole Dish
Have you seen the etched casserole dishes on Pinterest? I have a friend who makes them for gifts all the time, but I never had - until recently.
Rather than re-create the wheel, I thought I would link up to a wonderful tutorial here. The only things I did different were:
1. I cut the name I used out of contact paper with my silhouette machine
2. I scooped most of the etching cream back into the container before I rinsed the dish. It can be re-used, so why rinse all that cream down the drain?
Lavender Tub Tip: If you do cut out a name using a cutting machine, try to stick the contact paper on your dish with the letters still in tact - and then remove them. Trust me, it works much better this way. Trust me........trust me!
I found a set of 2 casserole dishes at Wal-mart for about $12.00, and etched them both for a gift. I am sooo happy with the results, and this was super easy. It was such fun, I think I might block off an entire day just to find glass objects in my house and then etch them.
Do give this a try. I think you'll really enjoy it, and I know if you make them for gifts - your giftee will be absolutely delighted.
Thanks for stopping by the tub,
