    Finally I have finished our flutes, guestbook, shell ring holder, and our planning brochure! I'm so glad!

    Flutes-
    Etched them myself, and put the ribbon and starfish on.
    glasses: $2 each at Pier 1
    etching cream: $4 michaels
    ribbon: $6 Joann
    starfish: $3 from michaels

    Guestbook-
    Made our own pages, bought the guestbook at michaels, and put the ribbon on.
    book: $9 michaels

    Shell-
    Bought the shell and starfish from michaels
    shell: $2

    Total for all of it I spent $26!!! and alot of time to actually finish them. Here they are:

                      Once I got the hang of it, it wasn't so bad. They make stencils, but I didn't find any I really liked. I just printed out the G and taped it onto contact paper. I put the contact paper on the glass and then used an exacto knife to cut he G out so I had my own stencil. Then you just rub the etching cream on w/ a paper towel and let it sit for a few minutes and then just wash it off and thats its.
