5 (F-I-V-E) MINUTE PROJECT!

December 12, 2011

YES, this is truly a five minute project AFTER you locate an 8″ x 8″ glass brick.  From research on line and on foot, you can find them at Hobby Lobby (non-existant in my area).  I did not find any at Michaels or Joanns.  I got mine at Sonora Tile & Supply, in Sonora CA.  The pieces I was able to purchase were close out ‘bits’ from last year so I got them at quite a nice price, $4-$7 per piece.

The Décor Element I used can be found on page 229 of Stampin’ Up!’s 2011-12 Idea Book & Catalog.  114708, Jingle All the Way (m), $9.95.  It also comes in a smaller size, 114707 for $3.50.

I placed it on our piano after this photo with a clear glass holder and votive candle behind.  Very soft, “glow-y” and pretty.

Here’s a quick ‘how-to’ for using a Décor Element.  This one is retired but they all work the same way!


1-  Clean the glass thoroughly, removing all ‘grease’ from your fingers.

Burnish image by rubbing on top layer
2- Burnish your image with a Décor Elements Applicator, 114285, $1.95

Gently remove GRID PAPER LAYER
3- Gently peel back the heavier grid-printed layer.  Be sure you leave all of the image on the thinner paper.

Position exposed image carefuuly on glass
4- Position the exposed image carefully on the glass (or wall or wherever you are placing it).

Very gently pull off protective paper
5- Carefully peel off this final thin layer of paper, ensuring that all image pieces remain on the glass.  Gently burnish these pieces again, using applicator or even your fingernail.
