Today my element of choice is glass. I was making some party decorations for a friend's daughter's birthday party and decided to make a centerpiece with the theme of her party and showcase it in a glass vase. It was so much fun and so easy to put together! All of the images are from the Hello Kitty Greetings cricut cartridge and I simply attached them to wood skewers with packing tape on the back and stuck them down into a styrofoam block that I wrapped in metallic paper. Here is the finished product:


Here are a few close-ups:
