Etched Portion Control Wine Glass
OK, confession: I’m on Weight-Watchers. And a major part of the program isn’t completely restricting what you eat and drink, but you DO have to watch and control your portions. This goes for wine, too. And since I do like a glass of vino now and then, I thought I’d made my own special glass to hold my five ounces of joy! I chose a stemless wine glass and measured out 5 ounces of water and poured it in the glass. Then, using a Bic Mark it, I drew a line all the way around to know where to do my etching. I used plain ol’ painters tape along the line, and burnished it down well with my fingernail. I then applied the Armour Etch Cream (see my review of that here) to the bottom of the glass. Now, you could leave it here and you’d have done the job- now you know just where to fill your glass! I chose the flower head icon of the Songbird Cartridge (using my “j” monogram) for the Cricut and cut it out at 3″, using some craft vinyl. So there it is…my special, portion-control wine glass.
