Supplies= acrylic 6x4 photo frames from wal-mart, post-it notes in a huge pack from Costco, Recollections Animal Print Pack from Michaels, matching ribbon from Michaels and Pentel RSVP pens at the dollar store.
Here is the final etched beer mug project for my hubbies guys at work filled with handdipped (by me) pretzel rods. I think they will like them afterall don't pretzels and beer go together.

Matreials=1 4inch clay pot, 1 4inch clay sauser, 1 fish or floral bowl from the dollar store, 1 wooden dresser pull, E6ooo adhesive, a piece of vinyl, an 18in piece of ribbon, paint in any color you want
Clean pot & sauser use E6000 to adhear drawer pull to bottom of sauser allow to dry. Paint pot and sauser in chosen color, allow to dry, adhear glass bowl to bottom of clay pot with E6000 again allow to dry. Cut words from vinyl on your cutter I use the Pazzles Inspiration (the best cutter in the world). I chose to cut the word candy because I'm putting candy in them for a craft fair but how cut would these look in the bathroom with cottonballs and Q-tips in them. Apply vinyl words to clay pot and add ribbon to tie a bow. Put on lid and your all done. How stinkin cute!

and made it my own with a little etching and a few simple changes, I totally love it and I can change out the ribbons to make it work for any holiday, right now its all dressed up for ThanksGiving.
Heres what I changed...
I used E6000 instead of hotglue.
I used batterie candles as I have cats and I covered them in matching ribbon.
I etched our monogram Like in the original.
I used potpouri instead of leaves so it also smells good.

First I got these beer mugs at the dollar store (awesome right) they are not the type of glass you would usly see at the dollarstore so I bought them all, twice.
I still can't get over how nice and heavy they are, Clean them up remove all lables.
Design your stencil in your prefered software I used the inspiration pro....love it. Make sure you add a square around you design for proper placement on the glass and as not to get etching cream all over the glass. (Tip) use a font that conects all the little small inside pieces of your letters it will save you alot of headaches later.
