A relatively easy project to punch* up some thrift store punch cups!
*get it?

Materials:  Glass Punch Cups, Etching Cream, Masking Tape, Paint Brush, Enamel Paints, Fine Tip Squeeze Bottle

My local thrift store always has a gaggle of these glass punch cups for about a dollar a pop.  You can find etching cream at your local craft store.  In mine, it's located with all the glues, which I personally don't find intuitive.

Directions:  Tape off little triangles with strips of masking tape.

Apply the etching cream to each of the triangles with a paint brush.

Wait and rinse according to the directions on the bottle.  Remove the tape to reveal adorable little etched triangles.  Now, you could stop there, but I didn't.  Honestly, I wasn't satisfied with the edges of my triangles.  They were a little wobbly (using a vinyl tape would solve this problem), so I took it to the next level...

Apply thin lines of enamel paint to an edge of each of the triangles using a fine tip squeeze bottle.  I used three different colors.

Kind of fun, no?  And cheap.
