Yesterday, I shared with you just one of the gifts I am making, and giving this year. Now, I’ll let you in on the other’n.
It’s a flask. Seems like we only hang out with boozers, doesn’t it, but we don’t, I mean, they aren’t.
When I made Husband his flask for our anniversary, I ordered a set of 4 5oz flasks as well. I couldn’t decide what size to get without seeing them, so I just got all of them – they were ridiculously cheap. Since this meant I now had four extra flasks, I figured I’d give them out as gifts, but I can’t just leave them all plain. It’s a blank canvas, just waiting for my creativity to gussy it up.
I was making the flask for a man, and wanted it to have a manly, yet current sort of theme. So I went with plaid.
First, I masked the flask with different widths of tape. Then, I took it out to our media blaster, and went to town. It looked like this…
I just peeled off the tape, and washed it to get this…
I’m quite pleased with it. And the guy I gave it to? He seemed quite happy.
Now you know how I’m spreading the Christmas cheer.
