Thankful Thursday design- honor someone!
Okay, so here's how I did it, and here's what you will need:
4 4" glass tiles (your choice of color)
cork adhesive backing
cricut cartridge of your choice.
The tiles were 4", so I cut the images at 3 3/4"- both the W and the swirly from the Storybook cartridge. I adhered them to the front of the tile and etched according to the bottle. Rinse and dry WELL! (hint, you want it dry.)
after you have the glass etched, and remove the vinyl (btw, I bought a H-U-G-E roll of cheap contact paper to etch with, no point in spending money on "good" vinyl to not use it on my walls!) Cut the cork backing 3 3/4" square. do 4 of them. peel sticky off and attach. You can see what I did in this picture here:
Note: if you don't have etching cream, you can still get the look by using a frosted spray to give your glass a frosted look. Warning with that: it may come off, or smear, or whatever. I've never worked with it, I just know it's an option. :)
Hope you enjoy!
