Taking Another Look!

Well as promised a while ago, I said I would post pictures of my "Thanksgiving craft".  For those of you that have only recently begun to follow my blog or even if you are just dropping in to check it mother's family every year gets together for Thanksgiving, and all the ladies exchange some kind of handmade gift to eachother.  Ranging from baked goods to Christmas ornaments.  What ever your heart desires.  Mostly we give ornaments, though.  Well, I love glass and Christmas lights and how it all sparkles together.  So I came up with this idea from an old magazine. So here is the results of what this all came to be!

I used:
Inkssentials 2x2 Memory Glass
Inkssentials Memory COPPER foil tape
Copper jump rings
Soldering Iron, and solder and flux
Stampin' Up! Snowflakes, Recollections, Close To My Heart, stamps
Gold and Silver Embossing ink and powder
StazOn Ink
Ribbon from Michael's

Here is the picture I shared with you all way back in September! 
I made about 30 of these and only broke one, not to bad, knowing how thin the glass is.

I am fairly pleased at how these turned out.  They were pretty easy to do, too.

Well, thanks for stopping by and being patient and waiting for my "reveal".  Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!


  1. These are beautiful! My family exchanges ornaments also and hand crafted is always preferred. I need to check into the Inkssentials. Thanks!

  2. Love these!! Can you give us instructions?

  3. I will try to get some kind of instructions made up here really soon. Thanks for the kind words!
