Sore Thumb

I have been put on no stitching by the Dr.  2 weeks now, no stitching driving me crazy!  They think I had something under the nail which grew some scar tissue.  They cauterized it, still hurting.  Will have it checked again next week.  I did have to sneek a dish towel in for a bridal shower.  I will cut some patterns this weekend.  But so hard to have cut patterns and not stitch.  The old saying sticks out like a sore thumb is so true.

Wine Glass Luminary Tutorial

My Son is getting married New Year's Eve.  I was asked if I would like to make the centerpiece decorations.  Well being the crafty person I am, I went in search of the perfect idea.  Many hours of internet sufing.  There it was, something different.  Wine glass luminaries. 

Silver Vellum scrapbooking paper with pattern.

Cuttout pattern with decorative edge scissors

I put little tiny dots on pattern so I knew where to punch.  I copied  the patterns on my printer. 

Punched along the edge.

Roller tape used along one edge, shade is made.

I put battery tea light and shimmering diamonds in the glass, 

I used personalized ribbon and a little charm that says to Love & Cherish.  I hot glued these on.

I plan on putting some pretty candies on this!  These look so nice in a dark room.
