Fantabulous Cricut Challenge!










It's Monday !!!! Time for our next challenge! This challenge was to create a Christmas themed project.
I created snowflake candle holders with the Christmas cricut cartridge. I cut the snowflakes out in vinyl and used them as stencils to etch a snowflake on each side of the candle holder.

I made tons of etched gifts last year from wine glasses to candle holders. These candle holders were purchased at the dollar store for of course one dollar apiece!

Please play along and show us your Christmas themed project at the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog!

These are just stunning - for $1 a piece!! I've never tried glass etching. I love the look you've created - so perfect for holiday decorating!

These are awesome! No way do they look like $1 candle holders. Thanks for the inspiration - one of these days I'll work up the nerve to try some glass etching!

Beautiful job Michelle, I have not tried etching glass yet. I need to get something as try it how long do you leave the creme on the glass before washing it off.
