I chose to make a gift for my mom that reflects her interest and her at home business. Most of the year my mom alters and repairs clothing. She is an excellant semstress. In fact she made my wedding dress. During Homecoming Season for highschool football she makes Homecoming Mums (a Texas/Oklahoma thing). She sells them to the students of local highschools to give to their sweeties. She loves doing both. For my project I made a lighted glass block that features both of these passions. On one side is a dress form (cut from Summer in Paris) and her monogram "S" (cut from American Alphabet). On the reverse side is the Eagle head (cut from Car Decals) and the word "EAGLES" (cut from the Lite cart Varsity). I made the cuts from vinyl, stuck the vinyl on the glass and then frosted the glass using Armor Etch. When the etching was complete I removed the vinyl and washed the glass. I cut the monogram "S" again out of black high performance vinyl (because it is shiny) and blinged it out with hot fix gems. I added lights inside the glass block and a ribbon around it. I put it on a stand. This is the first time I've made a glass block. It was fun and I have several more in my mind that I can't wait to get started on. Noticed today that they are 50% off through Saturday, May 7th at Hobby Lobby.
