    We have been looking for flutes for a LONG time. We just can't seem to find some that both of us like. Although we did see a set that was personalized w/ just the first letter of their last name, and we really liked this. We thought it looked a little nicer than have both of our names and a wedding date. So, I decided to etch my own. It's actually a bit harder than it sounds. Mostly just time consuming to get it perfect.

    Our last name starts w/ a G so I just put a G on the flute, we're going to glue the small starfish on w/ a fuschia ribbon.

    All in all, we really think its worth it. I bought the flutes from Pier 1 for $2 each. I spent $5 on the etching cream. I then just printed out the g and taped it onto contact paper. Put the contact paper on the flute, used a small utility knife to cut out the g. then removed the cut out g from the contact paper and smeared etching cream all over it wait a couple minutes and wash it off. VOILA!

    We really like it, and it only cost $9 to do the set. We're thinking about doing 8 more for the entire bridal party, and then we'll have a set of 10 champagne flutes for our house. And, they won't have the wedding date etc, it will just elegantly have a g on them.

    Here is the one I did last night

                I did one this morning and it took about 20 minutes.

                The shot glass idea is a good idea!

                  That looks so amazing! I am a bit confused on how it works, but maybe I will go to a craft store and figure it out. Thanks for sharing!
