 Personalized Party Set
GlueArts Designer: Julia Sandvoss

Supplies:

GlueArts Accent It All
Cricut Machine
Kraft Gift Bag

Designer Note: I was searching for a unique gift for a friend and her hubby's 40th party. This was a fun and easy gift to make that no one else came with!

 1. Select glasses and chose a font that is readable and fits well on the glass. Apply the Accent It All carefully working from the middle letter out. I chose a his and hers monogram incorporating both of their initials and last name.
 2. I cut a second set of letters from the Accent It All and applied those to the gift bag. I then cut a large design out and used the design to decorate the back of the glass and bag for a fun matched set!





How fun are those projects? And best of all...they are completely doable! That's right!

You can sit right down and make them! And to help that happen..we're giving away a set of our GlueArts Accent It All vinyl!
