A Glass Block for me

I have been making glass blocks for other people, so I thought I would make one for myself.

I started by using the string pearls from the Christmas area to fill a rectangular glass block.  I then used some shimmer ribbon to tie a bow around the block. I got all of these materials at Hobby Lobby and they were all 50% off.


I then used the Jasmine Cricut Cartridge to cut my name out of black vinyl to put on the front.  I think it turned out really pretty.

Monica,
It is one of the rectangular glass blocks from Hobby Lobby. They are in the craft section and are $9.99, but they run them 50% off sometimes, and that is when I like to buy them. :)
