Etching Glass with Paper Smooches dies and Savannah O'Gwynn

Hello, friends:}

Savannah O'Gwynn here, and today I'm sharing an idea that I've been thinking about for SEVERAL months!!!! Ever since Paper Smooches introduced their dies, I've wanted to try etching glass/jars/etc. with a die cut vinyl mask. This is a perfect project for Paper Smooches dies!!! 

Here's the video:

Here's a couple of pictures of my etched jars, cups, and bowls:

seriously! this is a gorgeous technique!!! wow!! you really do have the BEST and most unique ideas! i don't know how you do it, but i LOVE watching these videos! i get so inspired and want to get crafty right away!! your glass containers are beautiful with the etching! and i wanted to tell you how much i appreciate all of the trial and error that goes into the videos BEFORE you make them! (like when you test them out before hand! the tip of waiting for 30 minutes or so, is just fantastic!) thank you again!
