Each year, I like to make gifts for teachers, close friends and family. This year I mass produced stained glass Christmas lightbulb ornaments that were given to teachers and my close friends.
I think they turned out great. I used one of my Cricut Christmas cartridges to make the template. I made 10 and gave away all but one.
I had to keep one to put on my tree. I kept one of the aqua colored one and it looked amazing. I love how textured glass catches the light. On the left, no light bouncing off the front, on the right, how it looks when the light catches it.
I also tried making a paperweight for my mother-in-law. For my first attempt, I was very proud of it.
The seashells and sand came from the beach that is a favorite of us both: Ridgevale Beach, Chatham, MA. I used four different kinds of glass. Clear with ripple, white and milk swirl, aqua with ripple and dark blue. I cut enough glass to finish one for myself and plan on doing that soon.
