Video Blog Hop!!

Hi!
It's me, BettyBee, and I am delighted to bring you the video that I made of my "quilted glass block" light, for the Cuttlebug Challenge Festival of Lights!

Glass blocks have been around for a little while now, but this is a fun way to incorporate fabric, vellum and a tag cut with Tags, Bags, Boxes and More.


I hope you enjoy the video, the blog hop, and check Cuttlebug Challenge to see what else is going on with this Festival of Lights Celebration!

Be sure to leave comments, because there are great prizes to be won!! We are giving away a Winter Woodland Cricut Cartridge!! Add our Blinkie to your blog, leave a comment, and you could be a winner!!

Happy Crafting ~
BettyBee

Whoa that is amazing. I quilt and I would have never thought of using zip dry for the fabric. Love the effect of the fabric and the vellum - just beautiful. Thanks for the video.

Betty,
I love the glass block! I needed some gift ideas for aunts and great aunts and I think you have just given me the right idea! I will go out today and see if I can find the glass blocks. I also have not used that glue before, so will need to see if I can't find that as well.
Thank you again!!

Thanks for sharing! I am loving the glass blocks and this is a very simple way of doing it that doesn't involve glass etching, which kind of scares me...so I haven't tried making any glass blocks! Again thanks for sharing this beautiful project!!!
