Do you see the pretty blue and green stones and
the beach glass in my vase?

I just love Beach Glass also known as Sea Glass.
If you don’t live near the beach
and would like to know how to make some faux beach glass
that is my tutorial today, over at Stacey’s.
Bring the beach to you and create a nice little collection
for your own jar.
I will let Stacey take the floor and
show you her magic.
Hello Crafters!! I am Stacey from:

I am all about painting, sewing, crocheting, thrifting, and anything else to make the project just right. I am a fan of being inspired and I try to inspire others. Aside from crafting, I am a wife to a great guy who just graduated from law school. Whoop! Whoop! (He walks in graduation on Saturday!!!) Can you tell I am proud??! Then I am a Mom to 2 small kiddos, a boy and a girl. They keep me sane and crazy all at the same time. I wouldn’t have it any other way.

The project I am sharing for you today was SUPER easy. On to the tutorial….
Start with a cute plate. I got mine from Walmart for a dollar or two.
Then design your phrase in Make the Cut.
This is one of the print preview modes so you can more easily see what will print.Here is the machine doing the work for you and cutting out the vinyl.Here is a sample after it has been cut.
After it is cut out, peel off the main background and toss it.
Use your transparency tape and adhere it to the whole word strip. I only wanted to do the top word first, so I cut mine in half lengthwise so I could adhere the first word by itself.
Once the word ‘together’ was in place, then I lined up the second word strip and stuck it to the plate once it was positioned correctly.
Wah-lah! It is a fun saying and an easy Mother’s Day gift. I know it was last Sunday and all but I couldn’t spoil the surprise. So this is also a fun gift for anyone that needs a quick pick me up! Change the saying to fit whatever the occasion! You could also include a plate hanger or plate stand to display…but since I am in the middle of the move, I don’t really have one out to use for pics. So you will have to visualize that one on your own!

Thanks again to Cheri for having me here today. It was an honor!! She has such an amazing blog and is such a great person!

Love it!! I can so do this project. 🙂 Thank you for the inspiration. I have a quick question- – is Make the Cut the same as Sure Cuts A Lot? I just got SCAL yesterday, and am thinking it is the same. I’m now looking for projects that I can do with it!
