Here is my glass block...

I had the hardest time with this!  It's not that is was super hard it was that I didn't have good paint.  It looks so messy but it does look better in person than in a photo.  I used the "Christmas Cardinals" stamp set from Marks Finest Papers a Heinrich Co.  I tied the glass block with some sheer ribbon and some red Christmas tinsel tied a bow on top and there you have it.  Hope you will check this fun tutorial out and try one.



  1. Was looking for the Shrinky Dink posts for today. The glass block is pretty. Not sure I could make something like this.
