Wise Men Still Seek Him Vinyl

I am really, really excited about this new vinyl for the glass block. I made some vinyl for a super Saturday a few weeks ago and we asked if we could see some pictures of the finished project. The pictures came, and WOW did they look great. Some people are just really crafty and creative out there. I saw one of their designs and fell in love with it, so I decided to make one for myself. After I made one I showed my mom the picture and she had an Aha moment. The vinyl was placed on velum paper and then the velum was tacked to the glass block. It looks really nice and you don't see the wires in the back. The best thing of all is... you can change the velum for every holiday and only have one glass block. I thought my mom was a genius! So, we are going to get busy and make different holidays for you. Please leave me a comment to let me know what you think about this idea.



How to make this fun glass block. I took a piece of velum from the craft store and cut it to fit on my glass block. I then tacked the corners down with a glue stick. If you want the velum to be permanent on the glass block, I would glue the whole thing down with stronger glue. The wording comes in a straight line, so I cut the vinyl wording so I can put the words on top of each other. I put the wise men, words and the star on the block. Then I was done. You can add lights if you like, but it looks nice without it too.
You do not have to use velum for this project. You can put your vinyl right on the glass if you like.

I've thought about doing that very thing! Only I hadn't figured our how to attach the vellum so that it is removable. Awesome!
