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!

Spiral Picture with vinyl or HTV

Spiral Pictures who hasnt seen them.

It looks kinda tricky but it isnt as hard as it seems.

It al starts with a cute an perfect picture

Spiral Betty is the website everyone uses to get their pictures turned into a spiral. Unfortunately you can only download a jpg file so you need to do some tracing.

You can adjust your spiral on 4 levels, how many spirals you want, you can crop your picture, you can make your picture lighter and darker and give it more or less contrast.

When you have adjust your picture you can download the jpg.

You can trace the jpg in Scal, inkscape, design space, illustrator and other programs that can trace images and turn them in to svg files.

For the scan n cut users i advice to put your file into fcm because that extenstion loads way faster then svg in the machine.

In this tutorial i used inkscape but i prefer SCAL that is my design program i always use.
