My love of Harry Potter is still going strong.
I want soooo bad to go back to The World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios
like we did a few years ago.
So I made a little jar to start saving my money to do so.
I found this jar at Hobby Lobby.
I like it's flat sides - perfect to write on.
I've seen a few things on instagram that showed heat embossing on glass.
I used to do heat embossing back when I was a scrapbooker,
so I pulled all of my old stuff out,
and picked up a few new things.
(those are all amazon associate links)
The link for the anti static bag is to Michaels, where I purchased it.
I drew the words onto a piece of paper, cut it into the shape of the jar
and taped it to the inside of the jar.
Then I rubbed the static eraser onto the surface of the jar.
It works to remove some of the static so the embossing powder will only
stick in the places intended.
I traced the letters onto the jar with the black embossing pen.
I still struggled keeping it straight, so I used a piece of tape as my guide.
Then I poured the embossing powder over the top of the word.
I tapped off the excess, but there was still a bunch in places I didn't want it.
I used a medium and small paint brush to remove the excess powder.
Then I used my heat gun to melt the powder and make it stick.
I wish I had a video of this. It's so cool watching the powder melt.
The glass gets super hot (obviously) so be careful not to burn yourself.
Near the bottom of the jar I embossed the name of each of the
houses in their corresponding colors.
I just love seeing the house names on there.
Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff and Slytherin.
Did you say those in your head in Dumbledoor's voice like I did?
I hope to save up enough money to make a trip to the Harry Potter world soon!
