Etched Wine Glasses

Machine Used: BossKut Gazelle
Software: Funtime Scrapbooking IV
Files Used: Simple Fruit Grapes
Materials: Oracal 631 vinyl, Armour Etch

This simple project was created as a gift.  I purchased a set of 4 white wine glasses, something I knew that she would like, and added a little personalization to them.

For the first one, I started with the sentiment, "Aged to Perfection."  I used the BlackJack true type font and welded the letters together in Funtime.  It's one of my favorite fonts to work with lately because I love the look of it when it's welded together.

From the Open Clip Art Library, I downloaded the Simple Fruit Grapes and used the auto vecto feature in Funtime to create the cut file.

For the second one I typed out "Mimi's Sippy Cup" in a true type font called first-grader.

The third and the fourth took a little more time to complete.  I stared with the initial of a first name and used the font Easy Street EPS.  To create thicker lines, I outlined the letter and deleted the original inital.  The benefit to doing this was create the thicker lines and then making it easier to see in the design on the wine glass.


The first names were typed in BlackJack true type font and again I welded the letters together in Funtime.

When I layered the intial and the name together it seemed as though the first name would be lost in the initial when they were etched together.  To get the first name to appear on top of the initial I started by creating an outline around the name.  Then in Funtime, I took the outline of the name and placed it where I wanted it to appear on the inital.

Make sure to first select the border of the name, right click, and then select To front.  This is important to make sure that you do because it is what will make the subtract function work the way we want for this application.

Once you have the name on top of the initial, select both and select the icon on the left of your screen to Subtract all selected objects to the first element.

Now if you go ahead a line up the name on top of the initial you will see a border around the name that goes through the inital.

When you're ready to cut the vinyl, make sure to cut all of it together.  That will make it easier and will keep the integrity of the design that you've just worked on!

Thanks for looking!!

  1. Hi!!what blade did you use it??
    I have never done one like this.
    And what kind of paper or sticker?
    Thanks so much

    1. I used the vinyl blade in my Gazelle when I cut this.
      When I cut the stencil/template I used indoor vinyl. I used what ever scraps that I had laying around.
