Hey Friends,

March is Craft Month and it’s all about making new things whether it is

  • Arts and Craft
  • Gardening
  • Painting
  • Sewing
  • and so many other things…

Today I will be sharing with you how I engraved my name into a piece of wood that came from one of my shelves that broke. This is my first time using a engraving tool. So lets see what happens.

You will need:

  • engraving tool
  • piece of wood
  • stencil (of your choosing)
  • rag
  • Cricut machine
  • Cricut mat
  • glitter of any colors
  • laptop
I click on my first project with my name on it.
I click the “Customize” button
Select a photo from your upload tab on the (left) side of the screen. Used the text on the (left) side of the screen and type a name of your choosing under the picture. After you finished typing the text of your choosing click the make it button on the (right) side of the screen.
After you click on the (make it) button make sure that everything is looks good and click the continue button on the bottom right side corner.

After I cut out my stencil that I wanted to used I will tape it to my wood and start tracing it with hand engraving tool.
