Etched Cookie Jar

I wanted to personalize a Christmas gift for someone special this year. I found a great glass canister and thought it would make a terrific personalized cookie jar.

So here is what I started with.

Here is a sample cut before I cut the adhesive paper.

Again, I used my etching cream, and $1 adhesive vinyl shelf paper for the stencil.  Apply the etching cream on designated spots and leave for 10 minutes.  Rinse off, or as a reader mentioned in my previous post, you can scrape it off save it and use it again.  Good tip!

I filled the jar with a variety of delicious individually wrapped Italian Biscotti.

Now since Angela reads my blog every day, she will surely see her Christmas Present early.
Merry Christmas Ang, I couldn’t ask for a better co-worker!
