Subway Art Candy Dish

I am a little slow at trends. The whole subway art thing almost passed me right by! I thought it was cool but couldn't find the time or wall space for a huge project like that. Then it hit me! I could do a candy dish and be oh so trendy....if you ignore the fact that the trend is months old! So I got this very heavy (the glass is thick) dish at Walmart for a few bucks and got out my cricut, etching cream and vinyl. I did the layout on Design Studio. Used Lyrical Letters, Wedding, Printing 101 and Plantin Schoolbook.
I did the etching on the inside of the dish. Next time I will do it on the back but you have to remember to do a mirror image thing and I forgot.......
Because the dish is so heavy, I think it has an expensive look going! Not bad for less than 4 bucks! Diana


  1. Not bad at all... you do lovely work! Etching is a thing I've always been in awe. Good going!
