Wedding Favor Boxes

Just one last wedding related thing that i had forgotten to post. Rob and I frequently enjoy sushi and chinese cuisines, so it made sense to incorporate 'take out' boxes for our wedding favors. Well I knew that the material would not allow for stamping (slippery surface) so to keep things simple I made a simple heart monogram that we glued on to boxes. I love how they turned out.

Groomsman Gifts

Well wedding is over. So here is a little bare minimum step by step of our homemade etched beer mugs:

Basically I had wives/significant others send me photos of their police badges. From there, using photoshop, I did my best re-creation of the badge in a more simplistic version. Cut it out with MTC, applied it to the mugs and used Armour Etch to etch into it... here are the three mugs in the three phases...

Etched final version
Badge 2 Original

Final etched version

This project was fun, but tedious. Hoping to have reason to etch more stuff in the future!
