I have to admit that the punch is from Martha Stewart, but I purchased it because it closely resembles the Jumbo Snowflake Punch in the SU collection, which unfortunately, was way too big for this project. I simply punched a few snowflakes out of computer paper and used a bit of glue from the Anywhere Glue Stick to adhere them. Then I glopped on the etching cream. I've etched glass before and always followed the directions with various results. This time around my little glass projects came out much better and more evenly.....I left the etching cream on for about 30-40 minutes. Then I washed off the etching cream and glued on paper. The only issue was that the rim around the top wasn't as even as I had hoped, but the Ziggy Gold Paint Pen (retired) did the trick! Add in a sparkly red votive from the Christmas Tree Shoppe and the project was done.
Below are all the gifts together and how they looked when placed inside the gable box. The little tin was wrapped with some retired DSP and I added in some home-made toffee. Check out this post for more info on this gift.
With a bit of creativity, some time, and just a few dollars, I think the gifts came out pretty well....and I'm pretty certain my ladies liked them!
