Upcycled Measuring Cup: "Grandma's Love is Immeasurable"


A few weeks back I posted an "Inspire Me!!" looking for inspiration for this worn our measuring cup. I've been trying to decide what to do for a while. Fortunately this month's Silhouette Challenge was a $5 and under project. I knew just what I wanted to do: An upcycle project.  You can probably do this with any unused glass container, but I think the measuring cup just makes this saying perfect!! :D Since this is an upcycle and I already had some scrap vinyl, I only had to buy the small jar of Armour Etch. (This tutorial assumes you already know basic Vinyl work.)

1. Cut THIS file, or your own design.

2. Transfer the vinyl to the glass.

3. Apply the etching cream per the instructions.

4. Rinse per the etching cream instructions.

5. Remove vinyl. I only removed the heart and left all the lettering. You can do any combination you like.

I like the abstract of the rough edges. It's hard to get a good picture of the whole container, but I think it turned out GREAT! We gave this back to my MIL and she loved it.
