Glass Etched Plates

Take my neighbor gifts to a whole new level with personalized glass etched plates.  The plates were only $1 and I think they turned out great!

I used a snowflake design and cut it into some regular ole contact paper.  I had the software cut out a circle and I inserted the last name initial of each neighbor (remember to MIRROR the letter, since you will see it through the plate):
Then I brushed on the glass etching goo:
Finally just let it sit 5 minutes, then rinsed it off - at first I thought it didn't work, but the glass etching is kind of hard to see when it's wet, so after I dried the plates, voila, fab:

I do want one!!! Ive entered soooo many giveaways to try to win one!
Ive been really wanting to create custom etched glass for a while now! Yours turned out so pretty, what a great gift idea!! :)

How well does the etching hold up! This seems too easy!

it holds up really well since it is actually changing the finish of the glass - it can't come off.
