In event of awesome job offer, break glass

For my job-hunting boyfriend.

Find a six-inch square shadow box. Good luck with that; I made this one. Make sure it’s deep enough to hold a shot glass. Drill holes in the back to take the wires which will hold the contents and a hanging loop of some sort. Paint it fire-alarm red and varnish it.

Apply lettering to glass. I used Letraset because I am so fabulously retro. You might also use stickers, etching, custom-printed decals, or glass paint.

Secure inside the box a mini bottle of whatever and something to drink shots from. These are held in place with wire collars.

In event of awesome job offer, break glass!

    Chivas, and not single malt? :-)

    I had the Chivas lying around…

    Only a Torah scribe would have the dexterity and precision to use Letraset so perfectly. Well, only this Torah scribe would have created such a vehicle in the first place, but I’m distracted by Letraset envy and can only see thick, black, straight Helvetica.

    I think it is Century Bold actually. I had the devil of a time finding any Letraset at all–practically nowhere seems to stock it any more.

    And I learned my Letraset skills at my mother’s knee. She’s no Torah scribe but she’s pretty good on the precision!

    Oh, and the way you get it perfect is you do a test run first on squared paper.
