You can see here that we used the outline of the circles cut with a Cricut machine, and then cut out letter Vs for the middle. This way the V would show up inside of a circle.
Quick pause here to say that Melissa's parents actually have the same glasses, and I was drinking water out of one of their glasses while working on etching these ones. Well, I picked up a glass to put the circle outline on...and spilled the water all over myself. I mean, seriously, like all over. It was actually quite funny. Anyway, back to the tutorial!
We dabbed Armour Etch onto each glass and let it sit/brushed it around for about 5 minutes and then brushed the etching cream off (putting leftover cream back into the bottle), rinsed off the glasses in the sink, removed the vinyl, and ta-da!
So beautiful. A set of 12 custom monogrammed etched glasses (and for just $10 - we had all of the supplies on hand so the only cost was the glasses themselves)! I bet she loved them, I know I would!
