crafting, cont.



I'm still working on these. They are little charms that will go in the ballerina cupcakes for Rosanna that I showed you Friday. I found a whole bunch of photos of children with teddy bears, cut them to size and started applying liquid glass to some of them. I think I'll add a little flower inside each one and tie a little bit of ribbon to the top. I'll also add a backing with the name of the event and date. I think they are turning out nicely.




These two are part of a project that I've been working on for a long while...a stack of birthday gifts! Just imagine this...12 gifts stacked one on top of the other, all about celebrating your birthday! I'm really excited about this idea. I'll tell you more about it soon. But the teeny birthday banner and birthday girl pins are your sneak peek.



These are some rings that I made using vintage plastic jewelry pieces. The are oh-so-mod, no?

I love the charms! I'd never heard of Liquid Glass before this. My interest is really peaked.
So many terrific ideas!
