I am in wedding mode lately, as my brother in law is getting married in a month and half. I have been busy, busy, making wedding programs, bridal shower cards, etc., and clear scraps has played a beautiful role! I am going to show you today how to make some cute little champagne glasses for embellishments, or perhaps even a fun first Christmas ornament for the newleyweds....
First, doodle a picture of a champagne glass on a scrap of extruded acrylic. I use a permanent marker, and do it while the protective sheet is on, that way you can see the image and have no lines remaining after you cut it out. (This can be from some leftover album, sheet, whatever you'd like!)
Then cut out the image, trace it onto a second piece of acrylic, and cut that one out as well.
Next, after taking off the protective sheet from BOTH SIDES - grab some Ranger Mixatives in Silver, and cover your champagne glasses completely. You don't need much, just pick up and swirl slightly to cover, and then let dry completely.
Doesn't it create awesome texture?!!!! Almost like real silver, so beautiful. Next, grab some crystals. I used Prima's Say it in Crystals. Add some "bubbly" to the inside of your glasses... randomly and from bigger at the bottom, to smaller on the top.
I topped my crystals with a bit of Shimmerz Shimmeringz in Goldie Lox for just a teeny bit more glam. (Using a paintbrush, I just dipped it into the spritz and dabbed it on.)
Finally, place on your card (if you are making a card) or punch a small hole and embellish any way you'd like for a keepsake ornament for the newleyweds! Mine I finished off in card form for a bridal shower, with a "toast" on the inside that reads:
"May each day you spend together be full of the small things that make life wonderful."
Until next time, go make some "bubbly!"
