Inkspirations Blog Tour


Wasn’t Brandi’s project to die for? She always does such great stuff! Well, people, today is the day! Time to tour around and see some amazing gift projects! Make sure you check out the Inkspirations Challenge Blog for all the details but here they are for you so you can get started touring right away! Here is what I created for this blog hop. I really hope you like it!

My neighbour just opened a little cafe and had a whole bunch of glass trivets so she brought them over to me use as she knew I could come up with something. So, I took 5 of them and hot glued them together into a square. I then cut out some raw Decor Element vinyl with various snowflake sizes and also some lettering from the Join in the Cheer Sizzlet. Inside, I have three candles of various heights.

Around the bottom I added some striped 1 1/4″ grosgrain and a button. This project was not hard to make but when lit up and surrounded by pine boughs can fancy-up any table this holiday season.

I took this over to my neighbour for her holiday decor and it was very well received. Now I get to make another just for me!

So now that you’ve visited me, it’s time to visit our next stop, Helen.

If you want the whole line up for the tour, just head on over to the Inkspirations Blog to start from the beginning. Make sure you leave some love for the participants!
