Coasters and a Deal!

Well, the cat’s out of the bag.  Silhouette is being incredibly generous and giving away some of their machines throughout blogland.  Don’t we love them?  I’m going to be cruel and make you wait a couple more days before I do my giveaway.  This way, if you don’t win the other giveaways, you’ve still got mine!

Just to show you that I’m not allll mean.  I made a little housewarming gift for my girlfriend who just bought a brand new home!  Lucky girl, right?

I, of course, turned to my new Silhouette for some help. I started out with these craft mirrors from Hobby Lobby.  They were 30% off, so that’s…well…less than $2.47 for two of them.

I wanted to find just the right image to etch onto the glass, so I paid a whopping .99 cents for this flower.  LOVE.

I used the adhesive vinyl, cut out the image, and applied it to the coaster. A little (expensive!) bottle of etching cream was applied. ETA: The etching cream is called Armour Etch, and it was $8.50 for 3oz.  It’s pricey, but I used very little. I imagine it will last quite a long time.

10 minutes later…voila!

Here’s another picture ‘cause I think they’re that pretty, and it’s rather difficult taking a picture of a mirrored object!

After simply slapping some cork on the bottom and wrapping some pretty ribbon around it, I now have a charming and personal gift for my friend!

IMG_1923 She’ll love them!  And even if she doesn’t, she’s nice enough that she’ll lie and say she does.  In the hopes of tiding you over until the giveaway, Silhouette is offering some FANTASTIC promotions for you, as well.  Just enter the code “sweet” once you place your order.
