Well I haven't been very productive the past couple days but I did manage to put these guys together = )
It was kinda nice to have all this stuff laying around the house and not have to make a trip to any craft store. I picked up the candlestick bases a looong time ago from one of my Goodwill stores. I think they were maybe a buck a piece and they already looked like this (maybe silver leafed?), glass from Dollar Tree, scrapbook paper from a Martha book and the sand from the floral dept at Michael's.
Here's how they started out
Everything fit perfectly! You gotta love it when things work out like that = )
I used crinkle scissors to cut the paper and liked the tattered-ness of it. Not that anyone will be close enough to read but its got all kinds of mushy sayings on it = ) My strips weren't long enough to go around the entire glass so I used some mini glue dots to quickly adhere 2 strips. I totally plan to take the paper band off and use these after Valentine's too (minus the red sand, of course)!
Now to find a party to link to......
