Guys' Weekend Flasks

it's becoming an annual event where my husband and some guy friends go on a weekend fishing trip to canada. last year i started making guys' weekend favors and i started with an etched pub glass http://boogiebeans.blogspot.com/2011/08/bass-glasses.html. this year i decided a personalized flask would be fun. i designed the look, which includes the year, lake they're fishing, the event, and an old fishing quote "may the holes in your net be no larger than the fish in it.
i printed all the papers out on a laser printer and mod podged them to the flasks. then i added several coats of a sealer mod podge - it's specifically for furniture finishes. making sure that all the seams were covered and no water could get down to the paper. after the sealant is done you have to let it cure for about a month before you're completely water safe. then my husband filled them with liquor and gave them to the guys on the drive up. i think they all enjoyed their weekend favor.
