DIY: A Beautiful Etched Mirror with Personalized Ribbon for Mother’s Day

DIY: A Beautiful Etched Mirror with Personalized Ribbon for Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and what better way to show your love and appreciation for your mom than by giving her a personalized, homemade gift? In this DIY tutorial, we’ll show you how to create a stunning etched mirror with a personalized ribbon that your mom will treasure for years to come.

Here’s what you’ll need:


  • A mirror
  • Vinyl adhesive 
  • Transfer tape
  • A cutting machine (or scissors if you prefer to cut the design by hand)
  • Glass etching cream
  • A paintbrush
  • Tweezers
  • Ribbon
  • An iron /press
  • My digital cut file available in my webshop
  • Iron on vinyl

Step 1: Design your mirror

Start by designing your mirror on your computer.

Load the file to your cutting machine, with vinyl you have loads of or an ugly color you never use.

Step 2: Apply the vinyl to the mirror

Use transfer tape to apply the vinyl to the mirror. Make sure the vinyl is firmly adhered to the mirror with no air bubbles. Use tweezers to hold small pieces of vinyl in place if necessary.

Step 3: Apply the etching cream

Apply the etching cream to the open areas of the vinyl with a paintbrush. Follow the instructions on the etching cream packaging for the correct time and amount. Make sure you use a well-ventilated area and protect yourself with gloves and safety goggles.

Step 4: Remove the vinyl

After the waiting period, rinse the mirror under running water to remove the etching cream. Then, remove the vinyl from the mirror. When you remove the vinyl, you’ll see your design etched onto the mirror!

Step 5: Personalize the ribbon

Now it’s time to personalize the ribbon. Make a text with your Iron on vinyl or your mom’s name to put on the ribbon. Heat up the iron  or press and place the ribbon on top. Iron the ribbon and letter stencils until the letters are well attached.

Step 6: Finish the gift

Finally, all that’s left to do is tie the personalized ribbon around the mirror and your gift is ready! Your mom will love that you put in the effort to create a unique and personal gift just for her.

Etching a mirror and personalizing a ribbon may seem intimidating at first, but with a little patience and creativity, you can create a beautiful gift that your mom will cherish for years to come. Happy Mother’s Day!

This is what you need to know about your Blade Holder!!!

Blade holder settings scanncut
Blade holder scanncut

Have you ever struggled with the blade holder settings on your ScanNCut machine? It can be frustrating to constantly hear that the settings are variable, especially when you’re trying to cut a specific material.

The problem is caused by the fact that the settings are simply determined by two stickers, which are not placed in exactly the same spot on each holder. This means that every time you switch to a new holder, or even if you have multiple holders for different materials like I do, the settings will be different.

But don’t worry, there is a simple solution to this problem. I’ve made a short video to show you exactly what I mean, rather than trying to explain it through writing and leaving things open to interpretation. Check it out and see how easy it is to get consistent blade holder settings on your ScanNCut machine.

Winter lantern

Paper winter lantern

What do you need

Cardstock paper

Double adhesive tape or glue

Gel pens if you want to use the draw funtion with your cut machine

Scanncut ( universal holder), Silhouette of cricut

A little light on batteries for inside the lantern

The lantern is made in 2 parts the bottom (everything that is black on the picture) and the top ( which you can remove to put a light in/ all the white parts)

We will start with the bottom

Put the adhesive tape like in the picture and stick the long sides together. Stick the 4 short sides to the black square. Now the bottom is finished.

Lets make the top now

Put the double adhesive tape on the white parts like the picture.
Stick the corners on the inside border.

Now you have the top. Now put the tape on the white snow parts. Stick those around the top border. Now you only have to put te white square on top. Now your lantern is ready to decorate.

The tree is drawn with the draw function on the brother scanncut. I used glitter gel pens.

The tree can be put on the corner of the lantern or at the side. The winter flower you put to gether by size and you can put it on top.

You can add your own decorations if you like of course.

I would love to see your creations of this lantern so if you post it tag wiccatdesigns or mail me a picture and i wil post it on my page.
