with etchall creme

This cute little jar makes for a great treat gift. What a fun way to say thanks with a little jar filled with a special treat. I etched a design around the jar using etchall creme and to make it more special I colored it with silver rub-on wax to match the hardware.

To etch the jar I used etchall etching creme and a stick-on stencil from the Dollar Tree. The stencil wrapped perfectly around the width of the glass jar.

clean with alcohol

To prepare the glass surface for etching, I always clean it first with alcohol. This removes dirt and sticker residue.


I applied the stencil around the glass jar and then covered it above and below the stencil with plastic washi tape as an extra precaution against any etching creme going beyond the stencil.

using the etching creme

etchall etching creme takes 15 minutes to work its magic. I set a timer for 7 minutes, and then move the creme around in case I missed any spots. For this project, I turned the jar upside down at this point and then set the timer for an additional 7 minutes.

Once the time has passed, I removed the creme and put it back into the jar. etchall etching creme is reusable. Then I “washed” the etching with a baby wipe, peeled off the stencil and tape, cleaned the glass again with alcohol, and finally buff the etching with a cloth.

finished no wax

Here is the jar with the etching and it could be finished at this point.

wax rubon

I chose to enhance the design with a rub on metallic wax in silver. Using a cotton swab to apply the creme and then I buffed the excess off with a cloth.

final with treat

Here is a perfect little single serving treat in a specially etch jar ready for gifting.

3d Paper Christmas Ornament – Square

How fun to make your own Christmas ornaments? Make this 3D box ornament with a free SVG file.

I love the look of a decorated Christmas Tree. This year, my youngest daughter asked if we could make a lot of homemade ornaments for the tree and string popcorn. This ornament has the look of a quilt. I wanted to design an ornament that you could see into the middle and have it look different. To achieve this look, you will use scrapbooking paper that is two sided. 



  • personal cutting machine
  • free svg file
  • scrapbooking paper
  • Square stitch Glue Dots
  • Bakers twine
  • Bone folder
  • Scissors

SVG file:

Using your personal cutting machine, set all red lines to fold and black lines to cut. Cut two of this design to create an ornament. [SVG file]


Cut out two of the designed SVG file on your personal cutting machine using paper that is different on front and back. 

fold up triangles

Fold in all the triangle shapes on each piece. If you want you can use one Square per fold to hold the triangles down or leave them so they add an additional dimension. 

using glue dots
triangles glued down

Fold all the long folds. 

3d part

Attach the one flap that will make the piece 3D.

Now join the two pieces together using the flaps and Glue Dots.

Cut a length of the  twine, fold it in half and tie a knot. Place a Glue Dot on each side of the knot and hid it in the corner of the ornament.
