Father's Day Engraved Pilsner Glass Tutorial Featuring The Proxxon Glass Engraving Kit

Tammy here today with a fun Father's Day project using the Proxxon Glass Engraving Tool
 I received the glass engraving tool and it was packaged in a sturdy carrying case and had easy to follow directions. My daughter was happy to be able to make a Father's Day gift that she knows her dad will enjoy using.

Supplies I used:
Pilsner glass from The Dollar Store
Sharpie marker

How I did it:
1. My daughter used a Sharpie marker to write a note on a piece of copy paper. 

2. I placed the paper face side out on the inside of the glass and taped it to the glass.

3. I was able to easily trace the fine details of the drawing with the glass engraving tool, so it looks like she drew it on herself!

This would be a great gift for any dad that enjoys a cold beverage every once in a while, and you can easily trace any image with the tool so the possibilities are endless!

I hope this gives you some ideas on how to use the Proxxon Glass Engraving Tool. It is becoming my new favorite tool for sure!

Plan With Me Video Tutorial by Tammy Santana for the week of May 1st through 7th

Happy Monday everyone, did you happen to see my fun plan with me video over on the Sabor Papel blog last #fiestafriday? I used papers and cutouts from the Sabor Papel Ole' collection, along with a free printable I found on Pinterest. The Sabor Papel Ole' collection papers are so fun to work with, they always put a smile on my face. Did you know that you can buy the Ole' collection papers over on!
 I am creating recipe cards by printing my favorite recipes on clear label paper and cutting the recipe out and adhering it to the cute Recuerdos cards
 I plan on using The Happy Planner photo insert pages to keep the recipes I'm using for the week in my planner for easy menu planning.
Next week I will show you the cute recipe box I created to store all of my recipes I'm not currently using for the week.
In addition to the photos, I have also prepared a "plan with me" video so you can watch my process! Just click on the video below and you can decorate with me...
