Glass Etching with Vinyl!!

I just got this little toutorial from Susan at SRM- and I just had to share it with you!!  AND... we just happen to have a bunch or their new vinyl coming too!! 
Many customers have asked about Vinyl and Glass Etching.  You use matte vinyl as a stencil!  Yes, that's one of the many great things that you can do with vinyl.  Today I'd like to share with you a fun and fabulous project from Kristen Swain, a long time user of vinyl and a great friend and fan of SRM!  

It's a coffee mug etched with the words I {heart} COFFEE and filled with sweet treats.  Kristen loves the look of etched glass.  She used Armour Glass Etch in this project and matte vinyl in any color to create a stencil.  

After cutting your vinyl, apply your stencil to your cup or glass. 

Wear gloves and protect your surface.  Dab etching cream onto the class in the open spots on the stencil.  You may need to adjust the stencil vinyl to conform to your round shape. 

Completely cover the stencil openings.  Allow to sit according to directions, then scrape off excess.
Remove remaining etching cream in the sink with water.  Then peel off vinyl.

And here's your finished cut with sweet treats inside.  

Thanks to Kristen for this wonderful tutorial.  She's a vinyl star!  You can see more about this project on her blog:
