Personalized wine glasses in Santa Pants bag

Happy Sunday everyone!
Today I have a super cute project to share. My husband and I are doing Christmas with some friends and for their gifts I thought to do personalized wine glasses with their monogram etched. It is actually a SUPER EASY and cheap project. In all I spent $8 doing this, and I still have two wine glasses I can etch for a future gift. However, I already had a lot of the materials leading up to this... So, this being said here is the total rundown if you are doing this for the FIRST time.


  • Etching cream: (20 oz.) $23 at Michaels (you can use a 40% off coupon though)
  • Vinyl: $1 at the dollar store
  • You will also need a digital cutting machine or stencils. If you opt for stencils there is the added cost of buying the different alphabets. If you have a Cricut or Silhouette Cameo, you are in luck. Nothing else needed not even a special needle.
I used my Cameo and used Goudy Old Style for the smaller letter to the side of the big cursive letter (their last name) and Baroque Script for the last name letter. As such:
Next, I cut it using the dollar store vinyl on my Silhouette and weeded the letters out. I then placed a new uncut piece of vinyl (roughly about the same size) on top of the previously weeded stencil and made sure all the little pieces stuck to the new one, including the main silhouette (or negative) piece out. I used it as transfer tape since I didn't have transfer tape.
Finally I just applied some etching cream and left it on for about 5 minutes. After, I just rinsed it and lifted the stencil and little pieces in the middle.
And here you have the final results:

To package it I made the Santa Pants using SVGcuts.com free Happy Holidays file.

After a lot of consideration I have decided not to continue the Tuesday Print and Cut series. Thank you all for the interest expressed and for the following. If I make any new files I will make sure to add them as I do. The files will remain available under the Tuesday Print and Cut label.
