Then I rubbed on the white flowery circle. I didn't get it on exactly centered but it was ok, it wasn't that bad. Then I cut out a black "P" and rubbed it on top of the flowery circle. The typical black for pepper and white for salt. It didn't like the way it turned out. You could hardly see the "P". SO I took my kraft knife and scrapped off the rub on and removed the rest of it with more rubbing alcohol. Drying it off with the paper towel that was still sitting on my worktable (not a surprise since I rarely clean it off when I'm working - I allow myself a placemat size area to work!!!) Then I cut out a cute flower and started to rub it on and I wasn't holding it firm enough and it slipped and ripped and I couldn't match it up. So once again out came the rubbing alcohol!!! See where I'm going with this??? LOL Well at this point I decided to go with the original flowery circle so I cut out another one of those and rubbed it on. I decided I was not going to put the "S" and "P" on because it has just (yes just at that very moment, not the day I bought the shakers but about 20 minutes ago) dawned on me that the glass is clear and if you put salt in one of them you will be able to see it's salt in the container and if you put pepper in the other one you can clearly (literally) see it's pepper!!! Doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that one!!! So I left them with the simple yet elegant flowery circles. So much for trying to be too creative. Sometimes it's best to keep things simple!!!
So here's your tip. Make sure you clean the surface from any finger oils which also include greasy hand lotion. Rubbing alcohol works best to do this and it's cheap. And if you can't wait for it to evaporate (it takes a whole 30 seconds) you can wipe it off with a paper towel!!! Not your hands, even without greasy lotion on there are skin oils that could cause the rub on not to stay put.
I have these sitting in front of me and I still chuckle at the thought of labeling the obvious!!! LOL
This is a very simple project and you can make it as simple or as complex as you wish. I think I would save the complex for something larger.
Thank you SO much for stopping by,
