Last week I shared my weathered photo frame project which I completed with our new Dremel Micro. Now it’s time for my second Mother’s Day-inspired project – and I have a Dremel Micro to give away to a lucky reader!
When I heard about all the different functions that the Dremel Micro has to offer, I was most excited to give the engraving tool a try. It’s the perfect tool to make a personalised gift for your mom (or yourself!)
- glass jar
- word template, printed to the desired size
- washi tape/prestick/cellotape
- dark cloth or paper
- Dremel Micro with silicon carbide grinding tip
Print out a design/word, and cut around the edges. I chose to make a “tea” jar, but you could easily make a spice or cookie jar! Stick your design to the inside of the jar using washi tape/cellotape.
Lie the jar on its side (I found it easiest to fold up a towel to lean the jar against). Use the Dremel Micro to trace around the outside edges of your design.
Remove the paper from inside the jar, and replace with a piece of dark paper or cloth. This will help you to see the outside edges, which you can now fill in with the Dremel.
When you’re done, just wipe down with a cloth and fill with some goodies for your mom!
Now it’s your turn to win a Dremel Micro of your very own! Simply complete the Rafflecopter form below to gain as many entries as you can, and leave a comment to tell me why you want your own Dremel. The competition will close on the 2nd of April, and is only open to residents of South Africa.
Please don’t panic if it takes a couple of days for your comment to be approved 🙂
