Ornament Glass Block

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

I purchased a few glass blocks last year to make Christmas gifts but I never had time to make one. Where did this year go! With Christmas Day fast approaching, I gathered the supplies and got busy! Glass block and lights were bought at Hobby Lobby. Ribbon and vellum were in my stash.

Cricut Cartridges:
Celebrate with Flourish - Ornament is cut 1.99" wide x 3" high using some solid papers that were in my scrap stash.
Christmas - Happy Christmas is cut 3" wide x 1.41" high.

Because I have only limited colors of vinyl, I chose to add the Cricut images to a piece of vellum which was then attached to the glass block with Memory Book glue dots. Vellum can be removed and the glass block can be decorated for other occasions. I like the looks of this without the strand of lights showing through. Also, it is pretty just sitting on a table when the lights are not being used.

  1. I like your idea of being able to re-use your glass block. You did such a fabulous job of decorating it. The ornament is pretty and this is so festive and fun!

  2. What a great idea for the glass blocks! I always see them in the store and would love to do something with them. I never thought to use my Cricut! Very pretty design too!

  3. This is so pretty, Glenda. Great design. Love being able to reuse it. I'm thinking birthdays, Valentines, Easter etc. Great idea.

  4. What a pretty centerpiece. I am sure it looks great by day or night. I just read about using the velumn to put the pieces on and removing to replace with another scene. Great idea. I too, have some blocks just gathering dust.... oh well.
