Here is the craft project I was working on last week but couldn't show yet. I made three of these little bags, tags, and etched candle holders. I got the pattern for the bag from Splitcoaststampers, it is a 2-5-7-10 bag. It's easy and quick to make, just what I needed! The candle holders were fun to make, too. I haven't done much etching before this project (only once before), but it was just as easy. I taped off the top and bottom of the holder with blue painters tape. Then, using a stamp, I embossed the image onto the glass. You have to be careful the stamp doesn't scoot around, the Versamark ink (which is what I used), makes it slippery. You want to pick an image that has interest, but not too detailed. After embossing the image and letting it cool (I used kitchen tongs to hold the glass while heating it), just apply thick coats of Armor Etch cream with a sponge brush and let it set. Now, the bottle says to let it set for 60 seconds, but there must be a typo. To get the glass etched as much as I had wanted I had to let it set for over 30 minutes. You can peek at how much has etched by rinsing it off and letting it dry. Check the opacity of the glass and if it's not etched enough, add another coat of cream and let it set some more. When the glass is etched as much as you want it, rinse all the cream off. Then remove the tape and embossing powder (I used a scrapper from Pampered Chef for this part) and your candle holder is finished!

This is the scripture on the tag:
I will also be your light in the wilderness;
...wherefore, inasmuch as ye shall keep my commandments
ye shall be led towards the promised land; and ye shall
know that it is by me that ye are led.
1 Nephi 17:13
So I do have a couple of other little projects to show, but those will have to wait until maybe tomorrow.
