Courtesy of Sonny Franks at Sign Creations I got my hands on some vinyl that looks like etched glass when it's applied. Way cool. I do have some etching cream and want to try out the whole real etched glass thing but I thought this would be fun to try as well. It is so fun!!!
This is really popular among the vinyl enthusiasts right now. Split letters. You take the letter you want (the fancy S is from the font REGAL which can be downloaded free from some of the font sites), "split" it in your software of choice (I use Designer Studio for the Silhouette), create some little rectangles, "weld" it all together...add your name and anything else you want and cut it out. It's really not difficult but gives a really cool look.
I got this cutting board at the Dollar Tree for...yep $1. I doubt it will last forever but I think it still makes a very nice little gift. I want to do one for my son and his bride when they get married in April.
