Here’s how we made our recycled glass bottle garden markers.

Step 1: Drink many beers. Fine, I suppose it could be any beverage in a smooth bottle.

I love those family rules signs. That would be at the top of my to-make pile!

I have a ton of freezer paper shirt designs in my head, but I would probably make a ‘last name – established’ wall hanging first.

I would start by making labels for my pantry jars and craft room organization.

Your idea for the plant markers was fantastic and so creative! If I win I’d make some stencils for a project with a chalkboard theme that I’ve wanted to attempt for a long time! Thanks for the giveaway!

I’m a 67 year old retired grandmother. Recently took up a hobby using recycled bottles and using stencils to decorate. I wanted larger stencils than I could find and decided to cut my own. I’ll tell you what…not easy to do with arthritic hands. I have never won anything in my entire life but I guess if you don’t try you never will. This machine would really make things soooo much easier! Guess what I just realized this promotion was for 2013. See what I mean.
